    Applescript Indesign: Add leading Zeros to page numbering

    krayframe

      Hi All

       

      I'm creating a new doc from scratch but I need the auto page numbering to have 3 leading zeros, Can someone help me with the syntax?  I've found references to 'numbering format' and 'triple leading zeros' in the directory, but I keep getting the following error when trying to set them to page 1…

       

          Adobe InDesign CC 2015 got an error: Can’t set numbering format of page 1 of document id 461 to triple leading zeros.

       

      thanks again.
