Word’s numbering feature is easy to use, but it doesn’t work in all situations. For instance, it can’t handle an inline number sequence. By inline, I mean a sequence of numbers positioned within regular text. Fortunately, the SEQ field code handles these situations. I’ll start by showing you how to insert the SEQ field code manually, for those one-time occurrences. If you use this feature often, you’ll want to add AutoCorrect items for quick insertion into your text. So we’ll look at that, too.

You can change document numbering options when you select a document page (not a master page) and choose Layout > Numbering & Section Options. You can also change these options when you choose Document Numbering Options from the Book panel menu.

You cannot use the Type tool to select the bullets or numbers in a list. Instead, edit their formatting and indent spacing using the Bullets And Numbering dialog box, the Paragraph panel, or the Bullets And Numbering section of the Paragraph Styles dialog box (if the bullets or numbers are part a style).

Create an Excel worksheet that has as many numbers in it as you need. For instance, if you need 175 labels, you would place a title in cell A1 (such as “Number”) and the 175 numbers you need in cells A2 through A176. Make sure you save the workbook.

Starting with WordPerfect 9 the following additional button features are available for assignment: Outline Demote Item, Outline Promote Item, Outline Move Item Up, Outline Move Item Down, and several related features; all can be found under the Keyboard Shortcuts Feature category, “Insert.” For more information on assigning features, macros, or keystrokes to keys or key combinations (or changing the assignments), see here.]

Hello guys, I am on a project of making 12,500 tickets and so far, I’m at 500 out of 12,500 .. -_-” I was just wondering if Photoshop or other Adobe programs can Add Sequential Numbers on a particular area ON a picture,

The following example creates a sequence named DecSeq using the decimal data type, having a range from 0 to 255. The sequence starts with 125 and increments by 25 every time that a number is generated. Because the sequence is configured to cycle when the value exceeds the maximum value of 200, the sequence restarts at the minimum value of 100.

I’m not sure which version of InDesign first introduced printing Thumbnails like this, but even if yours doesn’t support that, your printer driver may have a similar feature of its own. Check the printer’s own dialog box by clicking “Setup…” near the bottom left corner of the Print dialog and dismissing the warning, then clicking “Preferences…” in Windows’s Print dialog that comes up (I’m not sure how to access this on Mac OS X, but I’m pretty sure there’s an easy way). For instance, on many HP printers, the feature you want is called “Pages per sheet” and has a drop-down offering 1, 2, 4, 9, or 16 pages per sheet.

Perhaps your explanation already addresses this, but I can’t see it. Is there any way this script can be used for printing multiple-up in numeric sequence? For example, if I’m running 1000 postcards 4-up (on 250 sheets). I need the 4 cards on page 1 to be numbered 1, 251, 501, 751; then the 4 cards on page 2 numbered 2, 252, 502, 752; etc., so that when the sheets come out of the printer and are cut into 4, I have a stack of 1-250, a stack of 251-500, a stack of 501-750 and a stack of 751-1000.

Click that, and a placeholder will appear where your cursor was, which will later insert the ticket number at that point. Do that twice for each ticket (once for the counterfoil, once for the main ticket). You should end up with something like this:

Note  Word does not convert typing to an automatic numbered list if the AutoFormat option is not activated. From the Tools menu, choose AutoCorrect. Select the AutoFormat As You Type tab, and check the option for Automatic numbered lists.

And just like magic, the entire column will automatically fill with neat serial numbers. Instead of creating a bullet list, the option will fill sequential numbers in table column. Now you can enjoy your coffee break!

This tip was very helpful. Now I have been able to automatically number dozens of examples in a linguistics paper, and as I revise the paper and insert new examples between the existing examples, the numbering is automatically adjusted. Now the next step is how to use bookmarks for the references to the examples in the text of the paper. The references need to point to specific examples, and need to be automatically adjusted when the numbering of examples is adjusted. Any ideas on how to do this?

The cache is maintained in memory by tracking the current value (the last value issued) and the number of values left in the cache. Therefore, the amount of memory used by the cache is always two instances of the data type of the sequence object.

If you place multiple frames on one page and apply the same numbering style, InDesign will count not be placement but order of creation. That is the reason why I get this weird order on the picture above.

But what is the ControlSource. Data controls have a Controlsource property. This property can be viewed in the Property dialog at the top of the Data tab. You need to set this to the Sequence field in your table.

A VIN with straight-ones (seventeen consecutive 1s) has the nice feature that its check digit 1 matches the calculated value 1. This is because a value of one multiplied by 89 (sum of weights) is 89, and 89 divided by 11 is 8 with remainder ​1⁄11; thus 1 is the check digit. This is a way to test a VIN-check algorithm.

I am trying to implement scenario 3 and can not get it to work. I created a button and put the code in the “on click” event procedure. I modified the code to work with my fields and tables. I also added the me.dirty = False and Me.Requery in an attempt to get things to work.

From the Type menu, select Insert Special Character>Markers>Current Page Number. On your Master Page, the numbering character will be the page prefix; A, B, C, etc. Style the character any way you like, including adding color or knocking it out of a shape. Add any other folio language you need, like an issue date, document name, or corporate URL.

I am creating a file in inDesign for a client that is asking for numbered tickets. They’d like to be able to print a specific number for each ticket. I’ve read some of the older answers for similar questions that refer to Data Merge, but I’d prefer not to take that route if avoidable. What I’d ultimately like to do is create a space for the numbers to go, select the number of pages within the Print menu, and have the spaces populate with the corresponding numbers while printing.

Basically, the only difference is that we now maintain a VBA.Collection, and this time we do make use of the UniqueKeyVariant parameter, using it as a key to locate the previously assigned number. If we don’t find it, we add to the VBA.Collection. The SQL to use those 2 functions remains identical. The downside is that if the query generates millions worth of rows, the memory may run out due to a http://sl-inworld.com VBA.Collection. However, if a form is bound to that large dataset, it will likely have several other problems anyway so VBA.Collection should not be a problem for forms that loads a few hundred rows. The other downside is that VBA.Collection will persist indefinitely even long after the query has “finished.” Back to form example, you might need to remember to call the ResetRowNumber() function on a form’s close to ensure that you dispose of the VBA.Collection and free up the memory.

The following process occurs every time that a sequence object is requested to generate the next value for the CACHE option if there are unused values available in the in-memory cache for the sequence object.

Normally, the term infinite sequence refers to a sequence that is infinite in one direction, and finite in the other—the sequence has a first element, but no final element. Such a sequence is called a singly infinite sequence or a one-sided infinite sequence when disambiguation is necessary. In contrast, a sequence that is infinite in both directions—i.e. that has neither a first nor a final element—is called a bi-infinite sequence, two-way infinite sequence, or doubly infinite sequence. A function from the set Z of all integers into a set, such as for instance the sequence of all even integers ( …, −4, −2, 0, 2, 4, 6, 8… ), is bi-infinite. This sequence could be denoted ( 2 n ) n = − ∞ ∞ {\displaystyle (2n)_{n=-\infty }^{\infty }} .

While your cursor is in either normal body text or in a new document, click on Tools, QuickCorrect, Format-as-you-Go tab, and enable (tick) the QuickBullets option in the Format-As-You-Go list. (See image above.)

☼  Generally, it is easier (and possibly more reliable) to insert a few bullet outline items inside another outline style if you (1) type the primary outline first, then (2) go back and select the items you want bulleted, and then (3) apply the Bullet outline style (with Insert, Outline/Bullets…,) to just those selected items as explained in the above paragraphs.

Some non-freeways use exit numbers. Typically these are rural roads built to expressway standards[citation needed], and either only the actual exits are numbered, or the at-grade intersections are also numbered. An extreme case of this is in New York City, where the Grand Concourse and Linden Boulevard were given sequential numbers, one per intersection (both boulevards no longer have exit numbers as of 2011). A milder version of this has been recently used on the West Side Highway, also in New York, where only the major intersections are numbered (possibly to match the planned exits on the cancelled Westway freeway). Another case is the Nanaimo Parkway in Nanaimo, British Columbia carrying Highway 19, where all exits are numbered though all except one are at-grade intersections. Some other intersections on Highway 19 outside Nanaimo are also given numbers.

•  Step 2. With the Reference Tools dialog still open (you can drag it to relocate it on screen), select the first word or two of the text in step #3’s paragraph, then click inside the Select Target field. (The selected words should appear there. Alternatively, you can type a name into the field, if that works better for you.) Click the Mark Target button. A [Target] code is inserted in the document, in the outline’s paragraph just to the left of the word(s) you selected and marked.

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.)

Note: These numbers are not automatically updated when you add, move, or remove rows. You can manually update the sequential numbering by selecting two numbers that are in the right sequence, and then dragging the fill handle to the end of the numbered range.

Yes, I’m a little confused by your brief too. The script that I describe here will create an array of numbers using any step value that it offers, including by 1 number each time. Whether you put the resulting list directly into InDesign as text, or indirectly using the Data Merge feature is up to you. Perhaps learn more about the Data Merge feature of InDesign itself – David Blatner has a great series on Lynda.com that will explain Data Merge much more than I can on this thread.

Scott, I have “txtProject ID#” in the code but the error message replies with highlight of “txtProject” omitting the ID#. I am aware of the # issue. The table field name is PROJECT ID#. The control is a text box of that field name. Is this not the control to use?

  1. The first value returned by the sequence object. The START value must be a value less than or equal to the maximum and greater than or equal to the minimum value of the sequence object. The default start value for a new sequence object is the minimum value for an ascending sequence object and the maximum value for a descending sequence object.
    There is a way to fill a column with sequential numbers in MS Excel, but there is no similar way available for MS-Word tables. So, I lazily began to enter serial numbers one by one manually but then I thought there must be a way to do this tiny task in a more efficient manner.
    A different way of achieving the same result is to create your numbered list, enter your unnumbered paragraphs, go back and highlight your numbered list, click on the format painter and then choose the paragraphs where you wish the numbering to continue. It is not necessarily any quicker but it does ensure that the numbering and formatting remains constant. Sometimes when I have used the method explained in the article the formatting of other elements rather than the numbering can be different.
