I have a series of static numbers in my InDesign CS6 document (e.g. 256, 257, 258, 259...).
All numbers have a given character style (i.e. Footnote).
I would like to find the numbers and renumber them starting from 1.
The result should be instead of 256, 257, 258... I get 1, 2, 3... until the end of the story/document/selection
The best help I could find online is here which is a response about using a variable in find and replace. However, I am afraid I am not a coder so I couldn't make much sense of the answer myself.
I have seen Peter Kahrel's Price adjuster but it is not quite what I need.
Lastly, there is an InDesignSecrets explanation of Sequential Numbering Inside Paragraphs which would be good if the footnotes could be added automatically e.g. through a replace. To my knowledge there is no GREP code for footnote which can be used in the change box.
