Hello,

I have a numbered list on flowing text and I had to move some pages around. As a result the numbered list is no longer in order because the text is still flowing to its original frame. What would be the best course of action to update the list numbers to be reflective of their new position in the document? Thank you for any help!

 

As you can see in the photo the list numbers are not in the correct order because the text is flowing to its original frame:

Yeh - you shouldn't move text around by moving pages around - especially when text is threaded in the frames as you can see by your connecting lines.

 

If you can undo that it would be great - it might take a bit of time.

 

The best way is to select the text and cut it - and go the page you're inserting on and then paste it into that page.

 

Your other option is to break all the text threads and rethread the text frames
