ok so here is my problem and I am sure somebody must know the solution. I have a numbered list that goes up to 71. I need to create a style for the numbering that is a number inside a circle, the circle fill is red while the number is white and the number is centered inside the circle.
I have no idea how to create this as an automatic numbered list, as manually will not work, and for the last one hour I have been trying a couple of tricks using paragraph rules but this did not work and the other one was using a font called combinumerals, though this last one worked except it does not create a circle but half a circle so it did not work. Can anybody help me on this?
In this case, you can create an anchored frame which contains a paragraph with an auto number. With an object style you can define the following:
The paragraph has to have this paragraph style and at least 1 other glyph. I use in such a case a thin space which is via character style so small, that no one will realize it (smallest font size and scaled to the minimum).
CombiNumerals will work.
Make sure to turn on Contextual Alternates if it is off, and for the solid background, use Stylistic Set 1.
Hey thanks for all your answers, so far what gave me the most results is to use the combinumbers, however what i get is harf circles, how do I display the font in full circles?
I dunno how that happens. Especially without a file. The below is a CS6 verison file. If you need an IDML, let me know.
Does the above work properly?
Try increasing the indent between your numbered bullets and the text.
I was having the same problem. You can't just type the numbers normally using the number keys. To type single digit numbers in a circle you use the Q - P keys (the row of keys just below the number keys on a US keyboard).
