A jump line is a line of text that appears at the bottom of an article, telling readers that the article is being cut off there, but will continue on another page; e.g., “Continued on page 288.” Another jump line often appears at the top of the column for the continuing article; e.g., “Continued from page 287.”
It’s easy enough to enter jump lines manually, but if you later add or delete pages from your layout, you have to remember to correct the page numbers in all of your jump lines. So if you know how to use page markers in Adobe InDesign, you can save yourself some work.
Watch today’s free episode of InDesign Secrets with Anne-Marie Concepción to find out how to add automatic numbering to your jump lines with markers, and learn a couple of different treatments for styling jump lines. She’ll also show you how to save your variations in a library that can be shared with other designers.
