• Step 1. Start the new outline list by clicking Insert, Outline/Bullets… and choose a Legal outline style from the icon list (usually, there are four to choose from). Click OK. If you use the “Legal” outline style, this will insert a “1” in the document, at the left margin.
I was referring to a numbering machine, not a press. The job could be output on a copier and then run through a separate numbering machine. We have that setup in our shop, it’s very simple and to just run through a numbering machine is very inexpensive.
The background image has a size of 22p5 by 5p6. You can choose any size as long as it fits onto your page. To fit the Rectangle Frame to the background image, select the Option + Command + C. This fits the frame to the content.
WordTips is your source for cost-effective Microsoft Word training. (Microsoft Word is the most popular word processing software in the world.) This tip (8180) applies to Microsoft Word 2007, 2010, and 2013. You can find a version of this tip for the older menu interface of Word here: Numbering With Sequence Fields.
Word’s Numbering Explained by John McGhie, MVP – comprehensive and not pretty (Downloadable pdf file in letter size) – Reading this is vital to anyone attempting to use automatic numbering or bullets in a law office setting or other places where the documents are likely to be reused or heavily edited. See also How to Create a Template with a downloadable template with style-based numbering. I strongly recommend that you read both of these before doing anything with the contents of this chapter.
Bullets and Numbering options in InDesign aren’t just for boring lists. You can auto-number items like captions, even incorporating prefixes like figure labels. Depending on how your document is set up, there are two ways to achieve this. Both involve setting up a paragraph style that incorporates numbering from the Bullets and Numbering feature. Generally I create a temporary text frame—often on my pasteboard—and set some items to create my style, pasting the text into my actual caption frames after the fact.
Note that with this alternative, remaining outline numbers will be automatically renumbered, so if you need to do this for more than one outline item, start at the highest number and work backward to preserve the numbering. To automate this process for the entire document, try the macro: “Replace outline numbers with text equivalents.wcm,” downloadable in Repl-OL.zip. [Note: This macro was written in WPX4, but it might work in earlier versions. Test it on a copy of your document.]
The 10th to 17th positions are used as the ‘vehicle identifier section’ (VIS). This is used by the manufacturer to identify the individual vehicle in question. This may include information on options installed or engine and transmission choices, but often is a simple sequential number. In North America, the last five digits must be numeric.
Separate numbering schemes can be maintained by using different identifiers. For example, you might number blocks of client information using the “clientinfo” identifier, while a running count of all orders might be totaled with a “numorders” identifier.
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.
(If the property bar is not visible see here.) Place the cursor in the list’s text — not inside any code — and click the button to enter a new value. This works best with standard, non-decimal paragraph number (or letter) schemes.
There are a couple of ways you can set up Word 2007/2010 to use SEQ fields for numbering — you can set them up as AutoCorrect entries or as Quick Parts. Both ways work; the method you choose is up to you. This long article describes how to create the SEQ fields and the numbering style in your Normal.dotm template; how to save the SEQ fields as AutoCorrect entries in Word 2007/2010 (and how to use them); and how to save (and use) them as Quick Parts. The most consuming part of this process is settings up the fields and the style; once they’re set up, using them is super easy.
Using Microsoft PowerPoint’s numerous formatting tools can significantly improve the quality of your business presentation. Sequentially numbered lists can help you more effectively organize the information on a slide. In addition to illustrating the required order of list items, a numbered list can help you visually break up large chunks of information, making it easier for your audience members to identify key points as you speak. Creating a numbered list in PowerPoint requires only a few clicks.
The Left Indent, First Line Indent, and Tab Position settings in the Bullets And Numbering dialog box are paragraph attributes. For that reason, changing these settings in the Paragraph panel also changes bulleted and numbered list formats.
You may notice that when you are customizing an outline numbered list, you do not have an option to set the value of the Tab that follows the number. You can only choose whether a tab, space, or nothing follows the number.
3. Formatting these page numbers is as easy as formatting any other text. Change the font family and size, color, and whatever you like, and all changes will be applied to all pages. You can add hyphens around the edges, underline, or do anything else you think will make the page numbers look appropriate to the layout.
Doesn’t work for Office 2010. “Exhibit 1” remains on every page. In other words, it places “Exhibits” on every preceding page including title page. I have a report with analysis (text). So the first 4 pages do not require an “Exhibit” section.
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?
I understand what you are after and that is to have four piles of postcards in the stack so that once cut down, the four stacks can be put one on top of another and be in sequential order. This is commonly referred to as “cut and stack” imposition.
Value used to increment (or decrement if negative) the value of the sequence object for each call to the NEXT VALUE FOR function. If the increment is a negative value, the sequence object is descending; otherwise, it is ascending. The increment cannot be 0. The default increment for a new sequence object is 1.
With the field code highlighted, click the File tab and choose Options. In Office 2007, click the Office button and then click Word Options. In Word 2003, choose AutoCorrect Options from the Tools sequential numbering in indesign and skip to #6.
To select outline numbering without changing the formatting of the paragraph, make sure that you select an outline numbered list that is not linked to the Heading Styles feature. Microsoft strongly recommends using numbering that is linked to styles. For more information on using styles in Word, see the Styles chapter.

The fourth to ninth positions in the VIN are the vehicle descriptor section or VDS. This is used, according to local regulations, to identify the vehicle type, and may include information on the automobile platform used, the model, and the body style. Each manufacturer has a unique system for using this field. Most manufacturers since the 1980s have used the eighth digit to identify the engine type whenever there is more than one engine choice for the vehicle. Example: for the 2007 Chevrolet Corvette, U is for a 6.0-liter V8 engine, and E is for a 7.0 L V8.
Are you tired of WordPerfect turning on automatic paragraph numbering or lettering whenever you type a number or letter (with, optionally, a period or colon) followed by a Tab — e.g., 1
Hello Bruce, I seem to be having a different problem altogether. I created my ticket in word using logos and text boxes as needed, ticket looks great. I followed your very clear instructions but when I did the Finish & Merge I got this message, “You cannot include DATA, NEXT, NEXTIF, or SKIPIF fields in comments, headers, footers, footnotes or endnotes.” I then click on OK and get this, “A field calculation error occurred in record 1. Bruce any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!!
