@Tony, do you track how each Draft was updated in the document? I can see how it’s important during the review cycle (“Hey, what changed since I last looked at your document? Were my comments incorporated?”)…but once approved, the revision history for the ‘Issue Approved’ (changes since last approved version) is more important than the draft.
You can easily maintain the jump lines of stories that continue to other pages, such as a line that says “Continued on page 42.” Use a jump line page number to automatically update the number of the page containing a story’s next or previous threaded text frame when you move or reflow the story’s threaded text frames.
Let’s start with the settings for the Chapter title style. Note the list name (FM Numbering), the level (1), the format (1, 2, 3, 4…), the all-important numbering style (Chapter ^H: ), the mode (continue from previous number) and restart numbers at this level is on (and can’t be turned off for level 1).
i first studied all the wonderful documentation systems which have been uploaded elsewhere for iso9001, eg NASA etc. Then i tried to implement something similar. Then i (rapidly) discounted all of them and went for a relatively straightforward numbering-only system. May not be elegant but requires minimal calculative ability.
Of course, there are third-party solutions that are available for creating sequentially numbered labels. One that comes highly recommended by several WordTips subscribers is Bates Labels from Payne Consulting (http://www.payneconsulting.com). This free Word template allows you to easily create as many labels as you need for a specific purpose.
To ensure each number fills its own text frame, select the whole story (Command/Ctrl-A), open the Keep Options (Command/Ctrl-Option/Alt-K) and choose In Next Frame from the Start Paragraph pop-up menu.
Page numbering is set within each document (see Book Design Made Simple, page 245). To set your page numbering to automatic, start by opening the document containing your front matter. Your front matter will have a separate page numbering system from the rest of your book, using lowercase roman numerals. Go to the Pages panel, click on the thumbnail image of the first page to highlight it, then click Numbering & Section Options in the Pages fly-out menu. Select Automatic Page Numbering at the top, and lowercase roman numerals in the Page Numbering Style drop-down menu, as shown below. Click OK, and all the pages in the document will now be numbered with lowercase roman numerals starting with number i.
Even if you did copy the content of another’s blog, if your blog is not a for-money effort I don’t think anybody can say scat about it. Especially since you posted not just a credit to the source but an actual working link. Wordknowhow should be thanking you for driving traffic to his undoubtedly for-money blog page – not whining about it. Given his reaction here, I’m disinclined to visit his page. Pretty sure I can find the information elsewhere. What a self-important crank that guy seems to be.
Version Control Fields have a mandatory prefix which does not have to be unique. The prefix is always displayed with the field where ever the field is displayed. The value in the Version Control Field does not need to be unique.
Instead of a merge, use a page of labels with six SEQ fields set for different sequences and with an interval of 6. The first page would be your initial set of fields with numbering 1, 35, 69, 103, 137, and 171.
To get started with a blank template, simply determine the number of rows and columns you want page page. It works rather like the “table” creator on Word. For this example, I chose a 2×4 (two columns, four rows) layout.
You have two choices when faced with the task of numbering headings in a Word document. You can enter the numbers manually and hope nothing changes — lots of luck with that one. Or you can opt for the more efficient solution and create and apply a numbered style. Unfortunately, that can get you into even more trouble, if you don’t know what you’re doing. To avoid surprises, follow these 10 steps to add a numbering scheme to a style.
Most documents are more than one page, so inserting new pages is a common practice in InDesign. You can quickly add a new blank page to a document using the Pages panel. The Pages panel allows you to visually display and navigate through all the pages in your document. When you work with multiple page documents, moving pages around is inevitable. You can simply drag pages in the Pages panel to rearrange them within a document or use the Move Page command on the Options menu to move them between documents. When you no longer need a page, you can quickly delete it from your document numbering in coreldraw using the Pages panel.
I used the CS3 directions to number 500 tickets both at the top and bottom of each ticket 4 up on a page. This method worked great and really didn’t take very long at all. I dudplicated several spreads at a time to create my 125 pages of tickets ( 4up = a total of 500 numbered tickets). Thanks so much for the help!
Thanks for the post – it got my headings working nicely…..yesterday. Today I’ve reopened the word file and the “numbered” part of the level 2 headings are all overlaid with a black box….which I can’t remove. Unfortunately I can’t attach a picture or a copy of the file. This black box obscures only the numbered part of only the level 2 heading – level 1 and 3 look fine. Any ideas?
To start page number 1 on the second page of the document go back into the options menu for the page palette and make sure that ‘allow document pages to shuffle’ and ‘allow selected spreads to shuffle’ is not selected. To deselect highlight all of the pages by clicking on the first page, hold down shift and then click on the last page in the document. Go back into the page options menu and deselect.
To prevent page numbers from appearing on a specific page, position the insertion point anywhere on that page. Choose Format > Page > Suppress to display the Suppress dialog box (see Figure 7). Enable the Page Numbering check box, and then choose OK. A Suppress code is inserted at the top of the current page. Repeat these steps for any other pages on which you don’t want the page numbers to appear.
Thanks Tony – i am going to start using the WIP designation today. I usually start revising my documents about 2 minutes after issuing them to the team – so this will really help me organize the in progress vs the issued.
The software has a very flexible and user configurable design to accommodate different industries that have different requirements for numbering schemes. The purpose of this white paper is to help describe all the ways the document management software can help solve the business problem of uniquely numbering and Versioning documents.
Is there any way I can get PS to do this automatically for me,so I either specify the starting number,or it actually takes the file name (minus the extension,so no JPEG etc after it)and adds this text to the watermark layer while I put the kettle on?
Some of the macros featured lower down this page had been available on my old site for a while, but I thought it would be worth integrating the various functions into a simple add-in (for Word versions 2007 to 2016) for those uncomfortable with the use of macros.
Warning (CK Note) To share a numbering scheme with another person or have it work for you over a long period of time or on a different computer, your numbering must be combined with styles (as set forth below). Failure to do this can result in what has been called “spaghetti numbering” and corrupted documents.
1. In your pages panel, double-click on the page icon where you want to start your numbering. In this example, I want to choose page 2, and have the actual page number say “1” on the page. Page 2 is selected in blue below:
A particular report must have pages numbered consecutively from 1-12. In addition, it must have 4 un-numbered pages inserted after page 8. In the past these 4 pages have been produced as a separate file but it would be easier to combine the two documents into a single file. How can this be done?
However, what I want it to do now, instead of just putting the number into the attribute value, I want the number to be a suffix to the existing default tag value of the tag named “ID” which is “ADDRESS:” for some blocks and “ELEVATION:” for other blocks but the tag name that the routine always has to filter for is “ID”. That way the user can pick anywhere on the block – not being forced to pick the tag we want to add numbers to.
I need to be able to automatically number pages with a preset. Coreldraw can already do what I need using the PageNumbering macro but I have to enter the individual settings for each template every time. I simply want the included PageNumbering macro but with the option to save 5 presets. If possible I would like the option of saving the presets to a file that can be shared with other workstations so I don’t have to manually recreate.
Tip: You might find it helpful to view not only the contents of your header or footer area, but also the formatting marks in those areas. On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, choose Show/Hide (¶) to turn on the display of formatting marks. Choose the button again to turn off the display.
Hi Sharon, you can fix this issue by using the layers palette. Go to your master page (where the page numbers are) and add a layer on top. Move your page numbers to this new top layer. When you go back to the regular pages of your document, the page numbers should now be on top of everything. Hope this helps. 🙂
We just started using X6 here at work, we were using X3. In X3 I never had a problem with page dimensions, with X6 anytime I go 200″ or more in either dimension I get blank PDFs. 199″ by 199″ works just fine.
