How to add numbers between boxes ?

Postby MikeLON » Wed Aug 20, 2014 10:45 am

Hi Everyone,

I'm drawing up a form, and in order to better break it apart visually, I have one set of instructions in a box (for person A), another set of instructions with no box (for person B) and a last set of instructions in a box again (for person A again). I want the steps to be numbered, and I want the numbering to continue through all three sections. Is there any way to accomplish this? I tried setting up both the boxes as frames, but it made my numbering way out of order.

Any other recommendations?

Thanks in advance,
MikeLON

Hello,

Type in all instructions with numbering. When finished, select the first set of instructions, then select Format > Paragraph. On the borders tab, select a line style, then click the second Default Line arrangement to put a border around the paragraph. Check the "Merge with next paragraph" option. Click OK to close the dialog. You should have a box around the first set of instructions. Do the same with the third set of instructions.

I hope this will help you..
