    continuous page numbering in a book

    redred

      I have a catalog with several separate Indesign files. We created each of the files separately and then I have tried to create a book with continuous page numbering. Nothing fancy, just straight numbers throughout. I have each document set to automatic page numbering and automatic chapter numbering. Within Book numbering options, I have it marked to continue from previous document and automatically update. I feel like that should be giving me what I want, but it isn't. Each document still shows it's own page count but the first pages actually start with the next number from the previous document, but they aren'y building on each other. If the previous document has 12 pages in it then the next document starts at 13... however, if that document has 10 page is in it, then the next document is starting on 11.

       

      What am I doing wrong?
