    Numbering pages in a chapter

    gabrielklee2

      Hi,

       

      I would like to edit a file with this criteria:

       

      1) consecutive page numbering in the bottom of the page.

       

      APART FROM THAT I NEED:

       

      2) on each chapter i need a line of text following an index structure such as:

       

           Chapter Number) Chapter Name / Subitem name / Page 1 of XX

          Ex.  1) Chapter Name / Subitem Name / Page 1 of 36

       

      And the page numbering follow the number of the pages of that chapter, independently of the global page number.

       

      Do anyone know how that can be achieved?

          Hi,

          Kindly check the concept is working for you,

           

           

          • Start to travel with pages from 1.
          • Collect the page count from 1st chapter to 2nd chapter (example: pages 1-51)
          • Increase the page count from beggining of the chapter 1 and place your details in every pages
          • Then go to 2nd chapter and collect total page count upto 3rd chpater and follow the same

           

          Total page count method:

          • Find every pages/frame's first paragraph style is 'Chapter Number' and collect the incremental count (p++). Push the count with chapter details in array
          • Comeback to the chapter 1, insert a frame and place those details from array into the text frame.

           

           

          Thanks,

          Selva
