Thank you for these clear instructions. I have had the same problem as Mommy Vaughan and followed the suggestion. However, on re-opening the Word document, I have the dialogue box Invalid Merge Field. I have to use Task Manager to close down Word. I am using Word 2010. Maybe that is part or all of the problem. Any ideas please? I need to sort this by tomorrow night to print them on Monday!
You may already be done, but my student also need table and figure numbering. In her document, the tables and figures only appear after Subhead 2s, so the formatting needs to look like this for her Table titles:
When the context menu opens, look for the choice Edit Field…. If it doesn’t exist, then your template doesn’t use the SEQ function. If it does exist, click on it. When the next window opens, you should see SEQ in the Advance field properties box. That template definitely uses SEQ.
Second (and more interesting) is that you can apply text formatting to text frames you’ve selected using the Selection tool or the Direct Selection tool. When you do this, InDesign applies the formatting to all of the text in the text frame, including any overset text. InDesign won’t let you use this method to apply formatting to text frames that are linked to other text frames. Tired of using the Type tool to select and format every photo caption on a page? Use the Selection tool to select them all and apply your formatting—it’s easier, and it’s quicker (see Figure 4-1).
InDesign has a robust set of numbering tools, but most users don’t do much more than set up basic numbered lists. Yesterday, in my Advanced Adobe InDesign class, a student asked how to number her chapters, subheads, tables and figures. It can be done, but isn’t covered in our workbook.
Open Publisher and click the “More Categories” file folder in the bottom right of the “Available Templates” screen. Scroll to the bottom of the list and double-click one of the options in the “Tickets” section. After a few moments, a sheet of tickets will open in the Publisher workspace.
All of the information you see on the image is actually part of it except for the image number,which is put there by your browser.What I’d like to be able to do is have that image number actually as part of the image and NOT seperate,so if someone saves it they still have that number visible.
Hi Scott, I had a question regarding the sequential numbering Apex example…I am looking to automatically restart the sequence every month, which is not a problem using your example (i.e. changing the year to month in the expression). However, I would also like to add in a condition for year, so that the sequence restarts for each month of each year (i.e. my problem is for example that Feb 2011 last sequence number is 5, and then in Feb 2012 this becomes 6, where I would like it to be 1). I am wondering what the syntax would be. Thanks in advance, Lawn.
Note All of the controls in the dialog box are either blank or grayed out because by default, the font formatting of the number follows the font formatting of the text that comes after-unless you explicitly declare exceptions as in the next step.
Number Position This affects how numbers line up in a document, whether they are right, left, or center aligned. For example, you may want decimals to align for lists with double-digit numbering and thus would choose Right alignment. Settings in this area do not affect the text however.
I’m producing gift certificates for a restaurant and they need to be numbered sequentially from 0001 to 0250. Is there any way to do this easily as opposed to numbering each manually? I’m sure I could probably work it out with a print shop, but the job was thrust on me last minute and my options are limited by the short turn around time.
First, you can’t use an Autonumber as part of your identifier as it can’t be reset for each year. So you have to follow the instructions in my blog article to create a sequential number. The article describes exactly how you can do what you want. If you follow the article closely, you should be able to do what you need.

Publisher doesn’t have its own auto-number feature. Although it is possible to produce automatic numbering, database/mail merge or a macro, a specially coded program is required and may take far more time than simply setting up the tickets and typing in their numbers.
Distance-based numbers have several advantages. They match the mileposts along the road; it is thus easy to calculate how far one has to go. Additionally, most new exits don’t need letter suffixes, as in a sequential system.
* Place the insertion point at the beginning of the Number field, choose Insert Number Placeholder > Level 1 (or just type ^1), and then insert a period. ^1.^#.^m means the first level (1) will be followed by a period, which will be followed by the current level number (2), which will be followed by a period, which will be followed by an em space.

Warning You can change the tab or remove it individually in each paragraph. BUT, each time you make a customization to your numbering scheme, the .25″ tab will http://sl-inworld.com in all the paragraphs that are a part of the list. This behavior occurs whether the numbering is tied to styles or not.
Klaus Nordby, one of our good-natured Norwegian hecklers, has produced a ray of sunshine in the midst of a deep, dark Scandanavian winter by coming up with a wonderful little trick involving adding sequential numbers inside a paragraph. For example, 1. this is the first clause of this sentence; 2. this is the second; and 3. this is the third. That’s not a big deal to type, of course, but if you had dozens of them and you needed to insert or remove numbering frequently, doing it manually would be a hassle.
We all use one or the other word processing software to write and edit documents. MS-Word from Microsoft is one of the world’s most popular word processing programs. And it is very powerful too –perhaps even the most powerful among peers.
