I want to generate circle number exceeding ⑮.

Hi,

When I am publishing PDF using Styler, I want to generate circle number exceeding .

So I downloaded 'CombiNumerals' and 'h_circum' fonts.

And I tried to blow :

1) Open Styler

2) Go to 'Generated Text > Numbers' and click 'Details' button

3) Click 'Font' Button and assing 'CombiNumerals' or 'h_circum'

But, I could not get results that I want.

Please help me with this.

Best Regards

Kim, Joon O

We are using circle numbers to refer to a Creo Illustrate CAD graphic that has a number 1 or 2 or whatever in a circle that points to a component in that graphic. Our implementation uses the <ph> tag like this:

<ph>1<ph> will display the number one in a circle wherever this is inserted in the text.

Originally, the stylesheet would put a PNG image or EPS image of a number with a circle wherever this was used when published to PDF or Web. By styling it with an element like <ph> all of our manuals update when we change the GENTEXT code.

So we now are using the CombiNumerals font but are looking at purchasing a different font that we like better that is easier to read. Simply install the font on the Arbortext + Styler machine for working on the stylesheet, also install it on the PE and the manuals will update automatically the next time they are published. Everything still works with <ph>27<ph> or whatever number is in the tags.

Easy right?

Joon,

   It is necessary that fonts be installed on both the client machine and the PE server.

Are you trying to use circled numbers for auto-generated numbers that increment?

Like numbers used for Chapter, Sections, etc.?

Incremental numbers use digits. 15 is comprised of two digits, 1 and 5. Arbortext Editor does not know to collapse 1 and 5 into a single character like ⑮.

Is that your goal?

Hi Tim

Yes, I would like to make auto-generated circle numbers for the "<ol><li>..</li><li>..</li> ...  <li>..</li></ol>".

My problem is that it can't generated circle number if <li> tag more than 15.

So, I found two fonts that can be display more than .

As you mentioned 'CombiNumerals' font generate a circle number by combinating the two digit.

'H_CIRNUM' font contains circle number exceeding . But, it has different character order from other fonts.

I don't know how to auto generate circle number using this font in styler.

What do I use styler using this font ?

Or is there a way to use another font ?

Best Regards

Hi,

I resolved my problem long time ago. Late, but I would like to share my solution.

My solution is almost similar to Andrew's comment.

It is as follow :

1. Prepare a font to support more than circle number 15

     - I used 'Quivira' font.

2. Edit stylesheet

     1) Add 'XPath Condition' for <li> tag

     2) Add 'Generated text' for the 'XPath Condition'

     circleNumber.png

     - Because 'count method' starts with 0, 'Generated text' is a 1 bigger than count.

     - However, this way has a constraint that must know the max number.
