Casedo Pagination 101Casedo Pagination 101



With Casedo, paginating your bundle is a single click away. When you turn on the pagination feature, Casedo will automatically and sequentially paginate your entire bundle. You may also want to exclude certain documents from your pagination, or simply paginate some separately to the existing documents. That is why Casedo has been developed to give users the ability to paginate documents in a variety of ways.





How to paginate your bundle with Casedo


With Casedo you can turn on pagination with a single click of a button. Here’s how you can easily create a paginated court bundle in minutes:


1. Create your bundle.

2. Upload your documents.

3. Organise your documents in your Index.

4. Click the toggle in the bottom left corner of the Casedo application itself.




Advanced pagination


With Casedo, you can use more advanced pagination features. These are designed to match your needs for in-court and out-of-court bundles.



Exclude from pagination


When paginating your bundle, if you want certain documents to be excluded from the pagination, you can use the ‘Do not paginate’ feature in Casedo. For example, if you have an Index document in your bundle but don’t want to paginate it as part of your bundle, then you can exclude that particular document from your pagination.



Here’s how you can do this:


1. After having turned on pagination, in your Index right-click on the document and choose the “Do not paginate” option:



By selecting ‘Do no paginate’ you will now exclude the selected document from being paginated alongside, and numbering will continue without counting that document.



When you use this feature, you will see that an excluded document is indicated by a minus sign (-).




Folder-based pagination



Folder-based pagination in Casedo allows you to paginate each of your folders separately. It is standard practice to paginate cases separately to legislation. You might want to have two separate folders for that. For example, you might wish to have bundle A for legislation and bundle B for your cases.



To do that:


1. Create folders to separate your documents

2. Place the documents inside the folders.

3. Go to the main menu, select Edit > Toggle Pagination Type’.


This takes the top-level folders and assigns them a letter, as shown below.


Everything in that folder separately gets assigned a prefix. For example, now the content in the A folder will start from A1 and the content in the B folder will start from B1.

If you no longer want that, you can click on the ‘toggle pagination type’ option in your ‘Edit’ menu and this will take it back to the original pagination style.


N.B. When folder-based pagination is enabled, documents that are not within a folder will NOT be paginated. This will also result in those documents not being reflected in your Table of Contents.



Insert pagination


Casedo offers you the choice of paginating certain documents separately, without disrupting the already paginated documents. Let’s say that you have forgotten to add something in your Casefile. When you simply import your file and place it anywhere in your bundle, it will be automatically paginated. However, to use this feature and add that file without upsetting the existing pagination, simply right click on that folder and click on Paginate as an insert, as shown below:


paginate as an insert



This will give this document a ‘point reference’ page number, for example A12.1, as shown:



You can repeat this as many times with any other document.


Paginated inserts are indicated by a plus sign (+) in the Index.



Set pagination start page


Paginating documents does not take into account the TOC (Table of Contents) and instead paginates from the first page following the TOC. If you need to include the TOC in the pagination of the bundle, or indeed for any other reason, you can choose the page number you want pagination to start at.



To do this simply:


1. Open the ‘Edit’ menu in your Toolbar and select “Set Pagination Start Page”.



2. Type in the page number you need your document to start from.



For example as above, pagination now starts from page 3.


Using the ‘Pagination start page’ feature will essentially start the pagination from the page number you desire and can be used to reflect the two unaccounted-for pages of the TOC in the bundle.
