Chapter 51. Special Characters > Auto Page Numbers and Jump Lines

Auto Page Numbers and Jump Lines

The Insert Special Character submenu includes three characters used to reference pages in a document. The Auto Page Number is the equivalent of XPress’s Current Page Number—usually placed on master pages to create page numbers. The other two characters—Previous Page Number and Next Page Number—are used when stories jump from page to page, as they often do in newsletters or magazines. In InDesign, it usually works best to place these characters in a separate frame for a jump line (for example, Continued on Page x). Position the jump line so it overlaps the main story frame, and then it can correctly call out the page you’re jumping to or from. All three characters work exactly the same way as in XPress.
