How to change the Bates numbering settings

Each page sent using the Zetadocs client can be automatically assigned a page number or stamp which can appear in a pre-defined location on the page. Often referred to as automatic Electronic Bates numbering, this technique is commonly used in the legal profession to assign a unique ID to each page to simplify retrieval.  To apply Bates numbers to Zetadocs documents:


Step 1:  Select Options from the Tools menu in the Zetadocs client.  


Step 2:  Choose the tab entitled Bates Numbering as shown in the screen below.



Step 3:  To enable Bates numbering, check the checkbox entitled Use Bates Numbering.   This will allow you to specify further options as described below.


Step 4:  Configure the options, such as a fixed prefix, the start number, and a typeface and position where the stamp should be applied on each page.  


The Zetadocs client keeps a record of the last used Bates number, which increments for each page submitted, ensuring that each page sent using the Zetadocs client is allocated a unique number.
