Does anyone know if InDesign CS6 will have an automatic numbering function? I don't mean just for lists in the same format, but for anywhere one decides to tag something to becounted? Right now, Virgina Systems's InSequence plug-in is the only alternative I have found that does the trick. In particular, I need to create footnote numbers (up to CS5.5, the footnoting feature was just too inflexible to be used for complex academic documents) that are scattered around the text.
That is not a feature in InDesign CS6. Sounds like time for a feature request.
There is a feature request for allowing XML tags in footnote, we are expecting it, still this was not done in CS6 as well.
This request was raised from CS3 to CS5.5
If they request it now they might get it just in time for CS17
