Advanced Autonumber Concepts

Here is a follow up to the Autonumber Primer that was posted last week. If you are brand new to FrameMaker or autonumbers, you should watch that video first:

Autonumber Primer

The video below goes into more detail about autonumbers and how to set up a complex series of autonumbered paragraph formats. The focus is on the counter building blocks and how they relate to each other in a series of autonumbered paragraphs. Your comments and questions about autonumbers are welcomed in the comments section below.

Towards the end of the video, I demonstrate a simple ExtendScript script for transferring the autonumber building blocks from the table to your paragraph formats. This eliminates the need to tediously copy and paste them one-by-one from the table. You can purchase this script for $19 US from my Carmen Publishing Inc. Store.

  1. Excellent instructions – very easy to visualize and understand auto numbering using a table! Thank you.

  2. Thank you Carole. Setting up autonumbers became easy for me once I started using the table technique. Please let me know if you have any other needs in learning FrameMaker.

  3. Great way to conceptualize the autonumbering. And that script was pretty nifty. Do you have a training module for FrameMaker scripts?
