objective: even numbers from 2 to 48 rotated around a circle
serial number variable text
changed text type from normal to serial number
Variable Text dialog box:
dd text in work space
placed on edge of circle
selected text, then circle, then circular array
use last selected object position as center
rotate object copies
auto-increment variable text
image populates with dd spaced appropriately
preview shows numbers from 2 to 25 spaced appropriately, incrementing by one
I experimented with various settings, only making things worse. At one point, I had 2, 2, 3, 4, etc, then had 2, 5, something, something.
I’ve searched the system for related previous topics but found nothing with math.
If this is not a possibility, I see two work-arounds. One is to use single increments, then delete the alternating odd numbers. The other would be to create a CSV file with only even numbers, although that opens up a new and different learning experience.
