If I set up a text box on the master page to handle the typical ” of ” format, I can’t figure out a way to easily change it so that the “total page” variable reflects the actual number of pages used in that white-paper. Instead I get things like “Page 2 of 7” when there are only 5 pages in that particular document.

Outside service companies that copy or image your documents can customize document bar-coded numbers to meet your needs. – Some photocopiers now automatically place a number on your documents as they are being copied. If possible, attach a number along with a bar code. This will assist you later with automatic indexing, in-court presentation, or for pretrial retrieval purposes.

When you apply a list using the buttons, you are not applying a style.  If you drop down the styles list, does it show “List Number” as the style in use? On my computer it shows the same style I started with, i.e. Body Text.  When you apply a list number style directly, from the Styles list, do your changes to that style apply?

            To display the “Master Page” view, click the “View” tab in the Ribbon. Then click the “Master Page” button in the “Views” button group on the “View” tab in the Ribbon. The master pages for the current publication will appear in the Navigation Pane at the left side of the window. Click a master page in the Navigation Pane to display it for editing in the main window. This causes the “Master Page” tab to be displayed in the Ribbon. Use the buttons on this tab to manipulate the master pages in Publisher within the publication.

I notice that documents are the place people go to find answers, but not all people. My customer would just ask me the question instead of looking it up. I’m much more intimate with the document, so I can find the information much easier than they can. The question I get more than, “What does the system do?” is “Why does the system do that?”.

Chapter title is the first level of numbering in this document, and “Chapter ^H: ” tells InDesign to type “Chapter 1: ” in front of the chapter title in the first chapter, “Chapter 2: ” in the second chapter, and so on.

Position the insertion point where you want the page number to appear and then choose Type in the menu bar followed by Insert Special Character > Markers > Current Page Number. A placeholder appears on the master page in place of the number.

I have been known to have a “rainbow” document when changes muyltip[e changes are made at different points in time. I really need to remember to go back at the “signed-off” version and start over with all black.

Click inside the small circle in front of Before current page or After current page depending on whether you want to add the pages before or after the original page. You will not be able to click on both.

Using the instructions in #5, add an incrementing SEQ field. You can highlight any of them, except the reset field. For step 7, enter n}. n is the default switch that inserts the next number in the sequence, making it easy to remember. You don’t have to specify the \n switch, because it’s the default, but you can add it if it helps document your choice.

The trouble with “track changes” is that it shows each and every change you have made verbatim, and sometimes that can impair readability. Sure, you can improve readability by accepting an addition or a deletion here and there, but that somehow feels like you are subverting the tool, trying to trick your audience.

The ability to apply formatting with the Selection tools is very powerful, but it’s also slightly dangerous. Let’s say you set a single character to Zapf Dingbats somewhere in your text frame. If you select the text frame using the Selection tool and then apply a new font, every character—including that dingbat—gets changed.

You may wonder whether typing 1, 2, and 3 would be easier than using the ListNum field. Although doing that may be easier initially, the value of using the ListNum field becomes apparent when you cut and paste. When a paragraph contains multiple numbered items that you move or delete, Word automatically updates the ListNum fields. Using ListNum fields assures you of accurate numbering within a paragraph throughout the document.

I would struggle to train my employees to follow this numbering scheme, even if it is well-documented. And I would have even more trouble explaining it to my external customers/partners. I have a much better chance of ISO-9001 compliance if my numbering scheme is as intuitive as possible.

Once you have finished customizing the master pages, you can then click the “Close Master Page” button in the “Close” button group on the “Master Page” tab in the Ribbon to close the master page view.

Recently I have been marking up my changes manually, simply by changing the font colour, and thus avoiding such subversive feelings. This has the added benefit that I can choose my markup colour rather than having Word choose it for me. And my favourite markup colour is…(wait for it)…pink! Specifically, magenta. Why magenta? Because it’s the one colour that shows up well both in colour and when printed out in black & white. Blue and red are both too dark, but magenta is just right. Magenta markup has the added benefit of providing an ideal ice-breaker for document review sessions – I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve had to explain why I use it. 

You cannot enter a blank space by pressing the spacebar—copy and paste a fixed-width space character from the document window instead. Note that plus (+) or comma (,) symbols cannot be used in section prefixes. (See Insert white space characters.)

You will now see a “Catalog Merge Area”. You’ll be able to enter anything in here — plus the data fields we created in the Excel document previously. This area is duplicated automatically 8 times per page (because my example is 2×4)!

MacroView UDN replaces the Unique Numbering Provider that ships OOB with SharePoint with a custom Provider. This custom Provider can be configured to assign numbers sequentially across the whole  document store. This use of a Unique Numbering Provider ensures that all documents will be assigned a MacroView UDN-style document ID, regardless of how they are saved or uploaded to SharePoint. The advantages of the MacroView UDN custom Provider are:

You probably know about Word’s mail merge feature, and you might even use it to print labels or other documents, where some of the information changes (such as form letters). You can use the same feature with Publisher. Although you might not think of Publisher as an Office app, it comes with several different versions of Office. In this article, I’ll show you how to print sequentially numbered tickets using Publisher and Excel. This article provides instructions for Publisher 2007, 2010, and 2013.

– When I’m ready to publish either a draft or a final version, I make a copy of it and label it similar to what you proposed above (e.g. “Requirement Specification V1.0 Draft A” etc.). This copy then gets published (which usually means that I distribute the link to whoever is expected to provide feedback).

Also, MS Word does not like when you have too many authors on a document. I have experienced corrupted documents (in Word 2003) in the past when there are too many versions, so the solution is not perfect.

The document management system automatically assigns a unique number to every single document that is added to FileHold. This number called the: FileHold ID Number. This number can be added to the document electronically and (coming soon) even printed on the document.

If a runtime error happens when you run the program, the numbering data that is being processed might be locked. Further data posting or processing is not allowed. To unlock the data, access lock management on the SAP Easy Access screen under  Administration System Administration Monitor Lock Entries . You can also access lock management by starting transaction SM12.

Customize any level that you’d like and click OK to apply the numbering within your document. Article I should appear within the document since you added the word article before level 1 through customization.

When you have multiple tickets per page, you need to use a different numbering scheme. This link show how to use a merge with an Excel spreadsheet to create incrementing numbers: Publisher Auto-number Tickets Here’s another page on the same topic: Numbered Tickets in Publisher

You can do that with workflows. Create a metadata column for the project (ideally using something like document sets so the ‘project level’ metadata is synchronised) and then a workflow that adds that project tag and the document ID number.

  1. The previous macro is useful in a template for creating invoices, orders, certificates etc, but you may want to increment a number in a document each time it is opened. One way to do this is to increment a document variable each time the document is opened and display that number in a docvariable field.
    In the example I explained, I was using a list, but did it with un-linked text boxes using “continue from previous number” and “continue numbers across stories.” I’m guessing that there is no way to tell InDesign that even though there are 4 text boxes on the page, that there are two different lists? I’d probably have to just create two threaded stories for that scenario to work.
    I am trying to make layout for newspaper with 33 pages.Is it possible to put auto page numbering on to the spread so that be ready for printing? That means that on my first spread (both side printed) should be page 1 on right side, page 33 on the left side. And second spread (the other side) should be page 2 left and page 32 on the right side.
