When you’re getting to the final stages in a long layout and find you need to add or remove a numbered figure or illustration, the prospect of renumbering them all can be very disheartening. But InDesign’s paragraph styles can make figure numbering a breeze. Learn how to create a figure style that auto-numbers your captions by following along with David Blatner in today’s free InDesign tutorial video. David also shows you how to cross-reference the number in the text, and update the figure number and text reference when you need to reorder your illustrations.
