Variable Text serial Numbers

Is the “Advance by” area in the variable text serial number suppose to increment numbers when they are cut. For example I entered 1 in the “Start”, 0 in the “Current”, 999 in the “End” and 3 in the “Advanced by”

I assumed that the program would output variable text 1, 3, 6, 9 etc. However the program outputted 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.

I also activated the “Auto-Advanced” button

“Advance By” is how much to advance each page when you click next or previous to run the next page of your job. Each text object has a value on it called “offset” which is the offset from the ‘Current’ value in the Variable Text window.

Your text objects have offsets of 0, 1, 2, 3, … up to 9.

If you click the Next button, they’ll now show:

4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 (because everything gets incremented by 3)

The documentation covers all of this here:

Thanks, I now understand how it works.
