Indys Number Generator 1.2

Features

Generating sequences

Kinds of generating sequences:

  • all integers within a given range
  • arithmetic sequence of integers with specified increment value
  • geometric sequence of integers with specified ratio
  • random sequence of unique integers selected within a given range
  • random sequence of integers selected from a CSV file - selected members will be converted to integers
  • random sequence of texts selected from a CSV file - members can be any text string and will remain unchanged

Examples:

Arithmetic: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10

Geometric: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16

Random: 15, 6, 34, 22

Formatting members

  • Variable length or fixed length of members. You can specify the minimum number of characters and filling character.
  • You can choose an additional text before and after each member.
  • You can split members in groups of characters separated by a delimiter char.

Examples:

Fixed member length:
001, 002, 003, 004, 005

Additional texts:
AB:001-Q, AB:002-Q, AB:003-Q

Groups of 2 characters:
00-00-01, 00-00-02, 00-00-03

Formatting sequences

  • Resulting sequence can be sorted or shuffled.
  • Select member separator (paragraph, tab, space, coma, etc.).
  • For CVS output you can specify a header. Header is a first member of the CSV file and it is used by Adobe InDesign Data Merge feature as a name of merged values.

Output

Indys Number Generator puts generated sequence directly into InDesign document or saves as a CSV file.

This CSV file is perfect data source for Adobe InDesign Data Merge feature.
