Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding line numbers, part of InDesign CS3 Long Documents.
Here is a quick tip for adding line numbers to your master pages, in fact to the slugs of your master pages.…In the previous movie, I create a slug around all four sides of the page, and the reason I did that was so that we could add…in these line numbers which if you are working with a client who likes to make revisions over the phone could be extremely useful…for you and now in this day and age of electronic documents we should all be making our revisions using Acrobat…and the markup features there, but some people are yet to get with that program.…
So if you are having to cradle the phone on one shoulder while you are listening to your client's instructions about,…"oh, it's in the third paragraph, second line," that can be a bit hit and miss. But if you put line numbers on your page…then when you look at your document page you can refer to a specific line and there is no hit and miss about it.…Now in this case, I have put the line numbers in the slug area.…The only downside of that is they're further away from the text itself.…
