Hi Dave,

There is the text format which auto numbers paragraphs and displays their number.

Problem is that it needs some text to apply itself to.

You end up with an autolinked text box on the master page, you can't just dump in an infinite number of paragraphs because auto page creation will then create a lot of pages.

Compromise is to turn off auto page creation, or keep the number of paragraphs adjusted by hand as needed.

As Gavin pointed out auto numbering requires some text, it is a feature that it ignores empty paragraphs.
