I am sorry--I don't quite follow what it is you are desiring. Magazines using XML is also out of my work flow.
Are you saying that the page number is in your XML source and you wish to maintain that numbering in ID?
Can you use ID's numbering and for pages which jump due to intervening materials (a new section with its numbering), begin a new section numbering? Each section can pick up from the previous section, as pages are entered earlier, everything renumbers.
But I fear I am simply not understanding.
Take care, Mike
Thanks for the reply..
what exactly I am looking for is, read the page number from the current page and place the same as a attribute for the page XML
I have seen a similar thread http://forums.adobe.com/message/5308051 here, but still not understanding how I can use this
First, as in that thread, I would inquire in the scripting forum. Your need is way above my pay grade!
Second, the pagination will likely not be the same in the ID document unless you force breaks which may be able to be done on the last paragraph of the source via your style mapping. Don't know that for certain. It can at least be done post XML import.
If you do not need to keep the absolute page flow from the XML, you can always use ID's page variables, of course. But I suspect you are wanting to maintain the XML source pagination. If so, you will need to ask in the scripting forum.
Sorry I wasn't able to help. Mike
Thank you Mike for your effort to undestand my problem.
let me post the same in scripting forum
Thanks & Regards,
I have a thought. Can you share a few pages of this XML for me to try something? If so, please feel free to upload it to dropbox and send me the link via a private message.
Thank you, Mike
