Automatic Section Numbering

Dec 11, 2012 6:11 PM

Hello, just after some help with automatic section numbering in IDCS5.


What I have is a (currently) 50 page document split into about 15 sections. I would like to number the sections and pages so that they appear on each page  1.1, 1.2 1.3 etc

I've experimented with all the page numbering options but none seem to automatically update the 'section' number, I can only manually add a prefix.


The problem I have is this document will be a continually evolving thing and later on I may need to add a new section between say section 2 and 3. Is it possible to have all the following sections renumber accordingly, so 3.1 automatically becomes 4.1 and so on.



Branched to a new discussion.

    In the frame where you are putting the page number marker also add the Section Marker character. It's in the same list of markers under special characters as the page number markers.
