I am trying to make red markup circles with a series oof numbers in them.
I need all the circles to be similar in size and have numbers going up form 1.
I can make the circles but they are all differnet shapes. (similar but differnet)
As Dave mentioned, a stamp is a good idea. It's possible to create a dynamic stamp that prompts for the number you want to include and even auto-increment as you place additional stamps. Post again if you'd like more info.
Link that follows is to a listing of tutorials associated with "dynamic stamps" over at acrobatusers.com.
Start with the oldest and work to the most current.
If you decide to really dig in get the book (yes there's one - Thom Parker's) which is available hardcover or eBook.
Here's another good example: http://blogs.adobe.com/acrolaw/2009/09/try-these-two-line-dynamic-exhi bit-stamps/
