I wonder if you can help....
I have an InDesign document. A fairly regular document, some text with lots of images. This is how I want it to appear.
I created this document and then added a list of figures ot the end of the document, exactly as you would a table of contents.
However, the image titles do not appear in the expected order. I thought they would follow the order of the automatic numbering being applied by the paragraph style, starting at 1 and following through sequentially to 12.
But, my images were listed in this order; 1,4,7,10,2,5,8,11,3,6,9,12.
A quick search online tells me that the document is being read in the order of the blue line here. That this is how InDesign works.
This is a problem. The images as placed follow a narrative, but the only solution I could find is to renumber the images, going from 1-4 down the first column, 2-8 down the next etc. This does not follow the narrative of the images as placed & looks weird and unprofessional.
My question then is, how do I get to place my images per first image here, and have them appear in the right order in my List of Figures at the end of my document?
Any insight would be very much appreciated. Thanks, Tim
