To get started, easy dotted line creation and ordering can be accomplished using this script as explained by joojaa here.
The importance of arrangement is because the Document.selection array respects the order that the objects are stacked. You can take advantage of that to create a new text object for each object currently selected.
Here's a very simple ...
In the US, the standard manual for all of this is The Chicago Manual of Style, published by the University of Chicago Press. It defines the order of front matter, back matter, the things that are necessary and those that are optional.
The front matter begins with the first page inside the cover. In a book, that is the "half title" page. An epigraph or a ...
When you use the "Type > Insert Special Character > Markers > Current Page Number" function, don't type over the "A" (or "B", or whatever Master Page you're on) that is provided by default. That's why you're not seeing the actual page numbers. If you leave the text as "A" in the text box you created on the Master Page, your problem will be solved.
The easiest way to do this is, I think, by setting up some paragraph and object styles to automate the layout as much as possible, and then use a script to add in the numbers in anchored frames attached to each paragraph.
Setting up your paragraph styles
In my example here, I’ve set up a document with facing pages and some basic paragraph styles – I’ve just ...
If working with a .INDB file (Indesign book), with separate docs as chapters:
Primary section: set as numbered list - level 1. Create a new list, uncheck "Continue Numbers From Previous Document In Book" in the options, then name and save the list. (No need to set your "Drop cap" paragraph as a list)
Secondary section: set as numbered list - level 2. ...
If you're interested in scripting, here's a sample script that adds numbers to duplicated layers:
It's not perfect, as we can see in the gif, after I click on number 4 and continue using the script, it increments the number based on the previously active layer. It could be modified to find all layers with a similar name and find the layer with the biggers ...
That's the default behavior it can not be changed. However you can make a plugin that monitors the scene and auto renames things on the fly not sure if its worth the time and effort, though.
However. if your ready to relax your requirement a bit renaming a bunch of layers after they are created without a sentinel to do it automatically is trivial be ...
First, I would second @AlanGilbertson in go and have a look at Chicago. These thesis templates might seem dusty and a tad boring, but there are some good arguments for them:
International standards. Should your thesis ever be of interest other places, a standard might be useful.
It will save you time in the long run, as soon as you have your document setup. ...
In cases like these, it might be useful to use InDesign's 'Book' feature. Choose New... > Book... to make an *.inbb file, and the 'Book' palette will pop up.
You can add *.indd files to the book, and order them as you would with pages within an *.indd. By default, page numbers will be continuous: if you place a 36-page file first, the second's first page ...
Yes, you can indeed change the starting page number.
1. Right-click your first page and select Numbering & section options...
2. In there you can find Start page numbering at:
If I understood the whole process correctly, you need to export each section as separate pdf documents...? you could use this script
This script will also work with ...
IMHO, and based on my experience with appstore the best attractive number there is 0 - absolute zero.
The only chance you have to sell any app now - are in-app purchases, so if you don't have thousands of dollars to promote your app, then set its price to 0.
Want to sell it with any other price? It does not matter - it will fail without promotion.
You have extra numbers because you have extra returns. Your style gives each paragraph a number, and InDesign doesn't care if your paragraph has content or not.
You have to search/replace two returns to one return, and then if you want physical space between paragraphs, edit your style to contain Space Before.
You would do this with section starts and prefixes.
Open the Pages palette and double-click on page 6 to make it active. Open up the flyout menu of the palette, and select Numbering and Section Options.
Leave the Start Section square checked. Click on the radio button which says Start Page Numbering at and put in 1. Yes, one.
Under Page Numbering, there ...
Assuming that the numbers are a part of the text and can be styled as a paragraph you can set up a paragraph style that uses Rules as faux backgrounds.
Create a new paragraph style and set Character Color → [Paper].
Set a Rule Above with a weight as high as you want the background and a negative Offset so that it is vertically centered on your number. Make ...
I could not find an "automatic" method, but I did find a method that could help.
Select the pages you want to define as one section.
Right-Click > Numbering and Section Options
In the "Section Marker" box (not "Section Prefix") type in "1 - " (I added spaces before and after the hyphen).
Repeat for each following section, changing the "Section Marker" to ...
If the numbering is done in the correct way and not simply typed in at every page, it would mean that the document is probably divided into sections that define numbering.
If you want to get rid of those sections, select the pages where the numbering starts again from 1 and right-click the selected pages and choose the Numbering & Section Options. There ...
Maybe you should use a text layer with an expression to about 3,000,000.
Here's an example that count from 0 to 3,000,000 in 4 seconds:
startCount = 0;
endCount = 3000000;
countDur = 4;
I wanted to just post this CorelDRAW forum link as a comment, but I don't have enough rep:
Any Faster Way to Auto-Numbering Columns & Rows on One page Only?
The macro (BDTableTextControl_v2.gms) posted by Brian in that thread gets close to achieving what you're looking to do.
To make this more like a legitimate answer, here are the steps I took to ...
I've never heard of or thought about spread numbering before, but why not?
I see (at least) five different ways to do this. Most of them aren't "dynamic" in the sense that if you start moving spreads around, the numbering won't be correct anymore.
Numbering (not dynamic)
You can use a paragraph style with Numbering as in the link you've provided, but ...
For the purposes of completeness, I simply arranged the data in a cell as @Scott suggested in a comment. If a better solution is presented, I'd be happy to select it:
with the CSS as
I found this method fast enough without using scripts
Create a new Document with multiple Artboards

Create a Area type in all Artboards
Type tool : drag diagonally to define a rectangular bounding area within the Artboards
Control panel : set the Font, Font Style and Size (The height of the ...
Maybe the folio on the left pages has the wrong Paragraph direction or Character direction?
Anyway the style of the left folio seems to be different than the style of the right folio.
Try to apply the style of the right folio to the left, or simply copy/paste the Current Page Number Marker from the right page to the left page.
In InDesign for chapters to work as you think it should (and frankly I think the same way) each chapter should be a different document in a book file.
What you can do in single document is: when slicing it for chapters, name "Selection marker" with a proper number. Then use type > insert special Character > markers > section markers.
And yes, ...
If you do not need live numbering, simply add a textbox for the identifier. InDesign allow freeform textboxes. An example:
The full display, when writing is this:
Construct master pages to keep the common elements such as page numbers in good shape. Create styles for titles, tables and other text types.
Let’s tackle question number 2 first:
If the Illustrator file of the map contains the gallery numbers inside it, then you cannot change them in InDesign. You cannot edit Illustrator files in InDesign. So I would suggest that you add the numbers on the map in InDesign instead. That is what I assume you’ll do in this answer.
Do it in Excel. Make a file that calculates your numbers and present the results as strings, if proper number format does not exist. Place the result into InDesign. There you can crop off the extras and add all decorations. You must change the starting day in the original excel spreadsheet. In Indesign you click Relink.
InDesign doesn't by default make a ...
Another possibility is to number the list automatically in ID, then convert the numbers to text.
Then make the resulting list (including the numbers as text) into an automatic bulleted list. Use a font with the desired open triangle as a bullet character.
Now, with nothing after the bullet character (i.e.no tab or space) track the text numbering back ...
Not easy, especially if you want to keep the automation... This could probably be scripted, but before going into this deep process, you may consider editing your font.
Here's a example using Fontforge with a custom shape...
The problem is obviously that it would only work for lists up to 9 and not more. Maybe building ligatures would be possible, but ...
