Automatic number increase? Is it possible in Scribus?
« on: May 20, 2014, 03:17:37 am »
Hi!

Is it possible to automatically increase a number inside a text frame? Similar to page numbering, but I don't need pages. I need numbers from 01 and increasing with each text frame.

I'm building some kind of lotery ticket.

Can you help me?

Thanks

Not currently.

A workaround that some people have used is to have 10 items on each page, where the number is #0 to #9 (# is "page number").

With this solution the items on page 1 will be 10 to 19, items on page 2 will be 20-29, items on page 11 will be 110 to 119.

Nermander's solution is easily the best way at the moment.

However, some other options that you might like to explore - with different results depending on what you want - can be found here: http://forums.scribus.net/index.php/topic,1274.0.html
