We're beginning our work with InDesign to create technical documents (reports for customers) due to its XML/import capabilities. Our document has a pretty traditional structure: Title page, TOC, heading, subheadings, footnotes and an index. One problem that we're experiencing is that if we define a new Master (or even use the existing Master), and don't "thread" our text boxes, numbering isn't preserved between the text boxes. Ideally what i'd like to do is have the text boxes numbering be independent of whether or not the text boxes are threaded.
Is this possible? I currently see two ways of doing this:
- Manually numbering (using "Start From")
Are there any other ways i'm missing to get this done?
