    newbie script question... consecutive numbers with update.

    cyberlizard

      complete newbie type question... this is also my first post.  ( I am using CS3)

       

       

      does anyone have a script which can make it so I can add numbers into the text consecutively.

       

      for example, if this is my text "the big fat dog sat on the very wide mat, but was then displaced by a unfriendly cat."

       

      and I wanted to place a number 1, number 2, 3, etc at points in the text so it read, "the big fat dog1 sat on the very wide mat2, but was then displaced by a unfriendly cat3." but later wanted to add another number and have later numbers update themselves, so the text then said, "the big fat dog1 sat on the very wide mat2, but was then displaced3 by a unfriendly cat.4".

       

      by inserting the three, the previous three became four.

       

       

      Has anyone got something which might be useful in this regard.

       

       

      Many thanks
