I have a 200+-page CS5 document in which I need to place several hundred consecutively-numbered markers. There may be anywhere from 0 to 12 markers on a page, and they must be numbered left-to right, top to bottom from the beginning to the end of the document. I will occasionally have to insert or delete markers, requiring subsequent markers to be renumbered.
Does this require a script, or could I do something with footnoting? Or outlining? Wouldn't I have to link the text boxes to make either of those work?
I have done this for smaller documents where I had to manually number/renumber every marker, but in a document this size, that would take hours.
I'm not sure what you mean by "markers". If you mean you need to number
certain paragraphs, take a look at my "Line Numbers" script on
www.freelancebookdesign.com (under the scripting tab).
It has several options which makes it fairly flexible -- including only
numbering certain paragraph styles, consecutive numbering throughout the
Each marker is a separate text box (a colored circle) placed on a graphic (which is in a separate layer). I can't look right now, but will definitely check out your script. Thanks for the suggestion!
