    change Start page numbering to Auto Page numbering in the Numbering & Section Options using script

    mr.pathi Level 1

      1.  I have many documents to add into a book. After adding the documents, all file page numbers should be continued from the previous file. Now I am doing manually for all files at all time. Numbering & Section Options => Start Page Numbering at: to Automatic Page Numbering.

       

      2. And also I need to add the Chapter number with the page number (Ex: 1/2, 1/3, 1/4 … , 2/2, 2/3, 2/4 …., 3/2, 3/3, 3/4 ….). Here also I am doing manually like.  Numbering & Section Options => Page Numbering => Section Prefix: 1 and Include Prefix When Numbering Pages. (The page number should start from 2).

       

      Note: In Every chapter opening there will be a file name called S… (Ex: Ch 1: S3391.indd, Ch 2: S3392.indd, Ch 3: S3393.indd). So after every S(S3391, S3392 …) file the next file page number should starts from 1/2, 1/3. 2/2, 2/2 ….

       

      Ex:

      Chapter 1          Pages

      S3391.indd     

      32457.indd       1/2  … 1/5

      32617.indd       1/6 ….. 1/9

      32217.indd       1/10 … 1/13

       

      Chapter 2

      S3392.indd

      42457.indd       2/2  … 2/3

      52617.indd       2/4 ….. 2/9

      33217.indd       2/10 … 2/13

       

      Could anyone give me an idea or script, please? At least for First one, could anyone suggest me ASAP.

       

      P.S: I have some more questions regarding this, I will post that after some time...

       

      Thanks in Advance,

      Thiru
