I have a series of numbers with a numbered list in several different text boxes but in the same series of numbers. I want to add another text box because I missed several steps. Indesign numbers by order of creation. If I create a new text box in the same number series and place it where I want to inbetween two different text boxes, it picks up the last number in the series and starts numbering from there.
I have the steps
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10
I realized i missed 3 additional steps at step 5, so I create another text box and it starts numbering at 11. So it looks like such.
I have to use separate boxes as this is a training document with image so not all my lines of text are aligned in a vertical fashion down the side of my page.
Is the text threaded? This should not be a problem with threaded text as you can simply type or paste the new information where it belongs in the text flow.
… Or select the text block "6", Cmd-X then Cmd-Alt-Shift-V. Do it again with text blocks "7", "8", "9" and "10".
