• Step 2. Click the Options button, and click on Copy to make a copy of this outline that you can edit to make a brand-new outline. The Outline Definition Copy dialog opens. If you want to copy the new outline style to the default template, click on the radio button “Default template”; otherwise, click OK. The Outline Definition Duplicate dialog opens; give the style a name such as “Checklist” then press OK. The new style will be added to the bottom of the icons. (It should already be selected; if not, select it.)
To create the inline numbering sequence, copy the code and the surrounding parentheses. Position the cursor where you want to continue the sequence within your text and press [Ctrl]+V. Figure C shows the result of pasting several throughout the paragraph. At this point, they all display 1.
Thanks for this tip, it is close to what I need in my requirement specification – but my problem is that I need the (requirement-)numbers to be allocated once a requirement is defined, and then stay with that value ‘forever’, and at the same time be sure to have unique (requirement-)numbers.
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.
Property that specifies whether the sequence object should restart from the minimum value (or maximum for descending sequence objects) or throw an exception when its minimum or maximum value is exceeded. The default cycle option for new sequence objects is NO CYCLE.
• Whenever you need to use this feature again temporarily (assuming it is turned on) you can just press a certain pre-assigned shortcut key or click a toolbar button, as described in the next paragraphs. This “toggles” the feature on. Use the same key or press the button again to toggle it off.
Click Numbering in the Paragraph group. In Word 2003, Numbering is on the Formatting toolbar. At this point, you have a one-column table with one hundred rows displaying a sequential list of 1 to 100.
The purpose of this arrangement is to keep the line of numbers roughly centered even as the numbers are removed with subsequent printings. This format is shown in the copyright page image accompanying this article.

Learning how to use Print Merge in CorelDRAW can save you incredible amounts of time and money by automating small changes in a print job. Perhaps you are sending out wedding invitations? Rather than manually entering each new person’s name and printing each page out separately, Print Merge allows you to work with just one page, and automatically enter each new name on subsequent pages. Take the automation one step further using the imposition feature to fit more than one print job onto one page. Learning how to use Print Merge is great for projects such as seating cards, invitations, thank you cards or name plates.
Otherwise, the further alternative is to make a sequential numbering in word with four columns of numbers (1-250; 251-500; 501-750; 751-1000), set the postcards 4 up and use one column for one postcard, another column for another postcard, etc.
Did Adobe really miss out on an absolutely fundamental requirement in the book module? I finished my book, went to add page numbers to do the location index, but can’t find anything that would automate it. Do I really have to fat finger page numbers? If so you’ve got to be kidding. Books require page numbering. How could they be so ridiculous as to miss this important function? I’ll see if I can take the time to rebuild the book in Blurb’s bookify.
I have an opportunity to make a good impression at a new job, but ive never had the initiative to learn how to write a lisp routine. at my work we make walk-in coolers and freezers. these coolers are modular with a standard wall piece measuring a certain length. these wall sections have to be numbered sequentially. is there any way to automate this? sometimes we get change order from the client and it means going back and manually changing multiple texts (sometimes in the hundreds), but i thought if there was a way these wall sections could be scheduled somehow that when a new wall panel is inserted in the beginning of the sequence it would update everything after it automatically.
You can add a chapter number variable to your document. Like page numbers, chapter numbers can be updated automatically and formatted and styled as text. A chapter number variable is commonly used in documents that are part of a book. A document can have only one chapter number assigned to it; if you want to divide a single document into chapters, you can create sections instead.
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?
Sequences and their limits (see below) are important concepts for studying topological spaces. An important generalization of sequences is the concept of nets. A net is a function from a (possibly uncountable) directed set to a topological space. The notational conventions for sequences normally apply to nets as well.
I am attempting to write a query joining two linked tables in a query by payroll number (all numeric). When write the query and join by payroll number I get the “Data Type Mismatch in Expression” error. Both tables have the Data Type as “Number”, but the only difference I can tell is one has “Field Size” as “Decimal” and the other has “Field Size” as “Double”. I have even tried to join on the VAL() of each payroll number field with no luck. Any ideas? “Decimal” and “Double” are actually different dat…
This feature, along with more than a dozen other features, can be toggled On/Off with a macro. See the author’s QC macro. This macro could be used as a startup macro, or played whenever these settings have been changed (as sometimes happens, for example, when you edit a macro or conduct a merge).
You can automatically number items in your document. Most of you already know this. You can also automatically number figures, tables, illustrations, etc. If you decide to reorder those items, Word will automatically update the numbers so that the are in the correct order.
While InDesign veterans may assume everyone already knows this, I can assure you I have worked with very sophisticated documents from designers who did not take advantage of this basic feature. A good rule of thumb to keep in mind as you tackle InDesign challenges is this: If it’s repetitious, tedious, or time-consuming, there’s probably a built-in solution right there in the program. You just need to go look for it.
An auto-numbered paragraph style can do this. Also, you could create and insert a text variable that contains “Spring 2010” into each cell. Change the season and/or year in the variable to update all instances of its occurrence.
The general answer is to generate your sequence of numbers using a spreadsheet, and then merge them in to InDesign with Data Merge. See these two example threads from Peter Spier, “Trying to create hang tags, 6-up, 8.5 x 11 with vdp” and “is it possible to autonumber, 3 to a sheet? (1,2,3-4,5,6-7,8,9)”.
Generally, when you want to change the formatting of some text, you have to select it with the Type tool. However, there are two caveats to this statement. First, because paragraph formatting (which we’ll discuss later) always applies to an entire paragraph, you don’t have to select every character in the paragraph before applying it.
There are three issues common to all three scenarios. First, the sequential number is stored separately in the table as an Integer datatype (might need Long Integer). Second, the DMax function is used to determine the last number used. Third, the number needs to be generated immediately prior to saving the record.
Apply the heading style to headings, and make any adjustments. For example, you may want to specify a different Next Style (such as Body) for the heading styles so that when you press Enter after typing the heading, the Body style is automatically applied to the next paragraph.Tip: In Part I, I mentioned that if you need to restart numbering within the same story, you should create a paragraph style identical to the Level 1 style, only with the numbering starting at 1. Depending on your layout, there may be a better way. If another style will always appear between the lists (such as “step heading”), specify that style as the level 1 style, and choose None for Numbering Style Format.Next, I’ll write about creating lists of figures or tables.
At first glance this looks like a perfect project for Data Merge, since all the required data, including the path to the images, would be easy to keep and organize in a spreadsheet, but Data Merge doesn’t do tables, so the best you could hope for is multiple records per page. A catalog plugin might actually be worth the money if this is a regualr project and not a one-off.
It sounds like what should be page 63 has been defined as a section start. Does it have a triangle above it? This would be why the numbering format is different. Select that page and go into the Numbering & Section Options and deselect Start Section. This should continue your numbering.
I have a problem with Outlook 2007 and the add-in Access Outlook Add-in for Data Collection and Publishing. This add-in worked when I first installed Outlook 2007 when installing Office 2007 Enterprise. The add-in created a sub-folder in my Inbox named Data Collection Replies and worked well until about 6 weeks ago. Now I can’t get the add-in to work at all even though it appears in the list of COM.adds in Outlook 2007. More perplexing is the error message I now receive EVERY time I click on any email message to read it. The message is titled ‘Custom UI Runtime Error in…
