Custom Special Character

Aug 16, 2012 7:32 PM

Tags: #cs5 #special_character

I'm creating a document in which every second or third page, needs to say which lesson it is. For example on page 1 it needs to say lesson 1, and on page 3 - lesson 2, and on page 6 - lesson 3. I created a master page for these pages, and I want to know if I can put in a custom special character which basicaly says that each time this text box appears, it should be the next number.

I'm using Indesign CS5

    Make each lesson a new section (in the Pages panel, select the page then select Numbering and Section Options from the flyout menu). Give each section a section marker matching the lesson. Now, on your master page, go to Type > Insert Special Character > Markers > Section Marker.
