Hello.

In a book (indb, from a number of .indd of course), I'd like to have each .indd numbered both in book and in document numbers (an anthology, each .indd is an independent text, so it gets internal numbering, starting with 1, but it also is part of the anthology, and page numbers run through the book. So two parallel numberings). Any way to achieve that?

Thanks.

I think it's possible, one list of number would be a Section, the other Book Page, and you'll had to restart the section numbering. But you might have problem showing the list you want a TOC am currently trying to do that. I have 10 modules (10 indesign files, with sections for the 12/15 exercises). An InDesign Book bind the Modules together. Am generating a TOC for each module, and all the exercises start on page 1 of the section, which is irrelevant for a TOC. The general TOC, the one for the Book, also does the same. So, ideally, I would like to Module 1 – Exercice 1 – Module Page 1/4 – Book page – 1/100

Use the standard page numbering for the entire book and a numbered list for the internal numbering.
