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.
