Hello, I have only recently started using Indesign, and I want to number the verses of hymns, but because have pressed the return key to begin each new line of the the hymn, when I select the entire hymn and click on the numbering icon, it numbers every line of each verse, whereas I want to number each verse, not each line of each verse. I tried pressing the option key when clicking on the numbering icon, but couldn't find anything in the dialogue box that seemed relevant. I am using a mac Sierra leone. If anyone can help, thank you in advance!
Create a paragraph style with numbering, and applied to selected line, and not to all lines.
For the other lines create a paragraph style without numbering.
Use a soft return - shift return
Thanks a lot, that has solved my puzzle perfectly.
