I am working on a family tree that has many Generations involved. I would like a custom numbering system that looks like
and so on. any idea of how to set this up?
there two approaches I could think of:
- Type the text in a word editor (like MS Word) because the tab key will automatically create the sub-levels you want. InDesign could be linked to this file, get the updates and format the content as you need.
- All in InDesign, I would create Paragraph styles, one per each branch level, associate it with a shortcut (Ctrl+NumKey) for easy application. Each paragraph Style would control the indent (Tab) and numbering style. It gets tricky when a numbering has to resume the numbering but you be able to structure it that way.
Please confirm the version of your OS and InDesign
I cant follow the link you supply. Do you know where this tutorial currently is? I really need to learn this so i can apply a numbering system '1, 1.2, 1.3,1.4.........1.4.1, 1.4.2 etc etc
Thank you both!
I am running the 12.1 2017 CC on Mac Siera 10.12 for reference.
The trick, from that forum, was simply adding in the number of the level before the format chosen.
thank you thank you!
Thanks for sharing. Remember, styles will allow you to save time with updates/adjustments
