I have a file with over 300 pages, and I want to assign a unique serial number to each page. While I've been using the 'current page number' for this purpose, I now need both the page number and a separate increasing serial number. Is there an alternative method to achieve this, aside from using the 'Insert page number' feature?

Use a list:

  1.  Create a text frame on the parent page, on a dedicated layer
  2. Create a paragraph style using a numbered list (see screensshot)
  3. Apply this paragraph style to the frame and type a space to trigger the numbering
  4. Go back to the page panel and select all the pages
  5. Lock all the other layers
  6.  In the page panel, go in the option menu and choose “Override all parents pages elements”. I am not sure of the English exact term since I use a French version.
