It took me a while to test this out, but it will work using the instructions in post below. There are three subheadings in the document—skip the first one, and follow the steps for list numbering, and then the steps for master pages. When all is said and done, if you move these sections around, they will renumber automatically.
For simplicity's sake, I did this with the A-Master. Of course, you will want to use a custom master for the dividers. Put the auto-number on the master page, assign the master to each of the divider pages. (I color-coded the pages so that you can follow their movement.) Initially, all will use 01.
On each divider page, Ctrl+SH or Cmd+SH click the frame to override it. At that point, the numbers update.
And, when you drag the spreads around, the numbers will update automatically.
Thank you, this is a useful answer! I will wait to see if any others in the community have other solutions, if not I will use this!
Sounds good! I'm curious to see what else what others come with as well. I initially headed down the path of using section markers but it wasn't an automatic update when they are in a single file.
Enjoy your evening,
