Can I Remove The Page Numbering From My Bundle?

If you need to merge a wide range of documents (PDF docs, word, images, excel) into a single PDF file then Bundledocs is the tool for you. We handle complex tasks such as indexing, pagination, hyperlinking and bookmarking as standard. However, the best bit about Bundledocs is it’s really flexible and fully customisable.

 
Is it possible to remove the page numbering from the final generated bundle?

Recently our support team had a question asking if it was possible to remove the page numbering from the completed bundle? Yes! Bundledocs automatically paginates documents and your entire bundle as standard - as well as creating a hyperlinked index page and bookmarked PDF bundle. However, we know this isn’t for everyone. So if you would like to remove page numbering from your Bundledocs bundle, here’s how it’s done…

  1. Select ‘Generate‘.

  2. Expand ‘Page Numbering’.

  3. Select ‘Suppress Page Numbering on Documents‘.

  4. Press ‘Generate‘ to complete. Your bundle - without page numbering - will be created for you instantly.

That’s it! How simple was that? Remember, there are plenty of ways to customise your bundle with Bundledocs. Login to Bundledocs today, grab a copy of our manual and give it a try for yourself! Have any questions? Let our awesome support team know and they’ll help you out.

Paper Bundles or Electronic Court Bundles

One of the best things about Bundledocs is that you don’t have to choose to create an electronic court bundle or a paper bundle - you can have both. As a 100% cloud based product all bundles created using Bundledocs will be immediately available in electronic PDF format. However, if your court requires bundles to be lodged in paper format then that’s possible too. It’s simple - just print!

In some cases, there may be a limit to the number of pages or sheets of A4 paper that are included in either your electronic court bundle or your paper bundle. With Bundledocs you don’t have to go counting pages, we do this for you so you can see at-a-glance how many pages are included in each section of your bundle.

Don’t believe us? We offer a free 30-day trial so you can try for free and see.

Format of the Court Bundle

When it comes to formatting your court bundle, Bundledocs court bundle software has a wide range of features to make it simple to customise your bundle so it looks just right. If you’re unsure what needs to be included in your bundle, how it’s formatted or how it’s ultimately logged then make sure to check out your courts practice directions. For example, the www.justice.gov.uk website contains Practice Direction 27A that outlines the court bundle requirements for family proceedings.

Add documents: With Bundledocs you can upload all the key documents relevant to your bundle. There is no document limit and most files types are supported. Including word documents, PDF, emails, images, maps etc. Plus, if your bundle requires your documents to be created in a specific font type or line spacing, this can all be done before uploading your documents into Bundledocs.

Add sections: Each bundle can be divided into separate sections. With Bundledocs you can create as many sections and sub-sections as needed.

Index your bundle: Most bundles now require that an index page is included at the beginning of the bundle that lists all items in your bundle. Bundledocs automatically creates your index page and it’s fully customisable so it appears just as you like it.

Paginate your bundle: When preparing your bundle you will need to make sure it is paginated i.e. your pages are numbered correctly. Each page can be numbered individually and consecutively starting at Page 1. Bundledocs automatically handles pagination so your bundle is fully numbered with a single click. You can customise to suit and if any changes are needed, you simply re-generate and the page numbers are automatically updated.

How To: Restart page numbering for each section

Lodging the Court Bundle

One of the most important things to remember when preparing a court bundle for family proceedings is that it’s lodged and submitted to the courts on time. Regardless of whether you choose to print your bundle, send it to the court by post, DX, courier or provide it electronically. Again, refer to practice directions to see what methods are acceptable.

Does Bundledocs offer a way to share a paginated index to all parties before the hearing? Yes! Bundledocs offer a paperless way to easily share your paginated index with third parties, other side council etc. Check out our ‘Securely Send the Index Page to Other Side Counsel’ post to discover how this is done.

Bundledocs Late Inserts Explained - Feature Focus

We've all been there. You have finalized and completed your bundle, only to find new documents arrive in at the last minute. Don't stress. Bundledocs has just the solution for you.   

Late_Inserts.png

To begin with, if you have yet to send out or distribute your bundles to others, it couldn't be easier. Simply upload your new documents, arrange in order and generate. Your updated bundle is immediately available in seconds. 

The issue for many legal professionals out there is when the bundle has been sent out to the other parties relevant to the case - such as other side counsel, Barristers, Judges etc. From that point on, they need to ensure that the original page numbering is not affected (as some parties may have already begun their preparation, noting page numbers etc.). 

With Bundledocs unique and powerful Late Inserts feature, these troubles are in the past. 

So what is our Late Inserts feature and how does it work?

Bundledocs Late Inserts offers you the flexibility to add missing or late arrival documents into your bundle with ease. Once a document is marked as a Late Insert it will automatically apply alternative numbering to the document and this is then automatically reflected in the updated index page. It doesn't alter or affect your existing page numbering and ensures that all parties are reading from the same page, at all times. 

 
 

It's incredibly simple and easy to use. So how exactly does it work?

1. Upload. Upload any late arrival or missing documents

2. Mark a document as a Late Insert. Simply select the 'Edit Details' option, select the option 'Is this a late insert document?' and update.

3. Generate. Once you have positioned your document where you want it to appear, you are ready to generate. Bundledocs will then handle the hard work for you. It will apply an alternative number scheme on your document and this will be reflected on your index page.

Can I start page numbering for my bundle on a particular number? - Training Tip

Bundledocs_Training_Tip_Image.png

In today's post we will take a closer look at applying page numbering to your bundle. Let's dive right in! 

The first thing to be aware of is that Bundledocs automatically adds numbering to your bundle, helping save you time and effort. This means you don't have to waste countless hour's tirelessly adding page numbering to your bundle. 

Even better, if any changes are needed then you can effortlessly re-number your entire bundle with the click of a button. Simple!

One of the best parts of Bundledocs is that you have complete control of your bundle and can easily amend, change and customize your numbering at any time (and as many times as you need). We offer a range of different ways to customize the automatic numbering. These include: 

  1. Restart Page Numbering: If you have created a bundle with multiple sections then you can choose to restart page numbering at the beginning of each new section.

  2. Include the Section Number: Again if you are creating a multiple section bundle you can choose to prefix the section number to your bundle numbering. For example: A.1 or 1.1

  3. No Numbering: As you know Bundledocs automatically numbers your entire bundle, however in some cases you may prefer to exclude the numbering entirely. In this case you can choose to remove numbering from appearing on your automatic index (did you know we automatically index the bundle too!) or from the pages themselves. This is all possible with the click of a button!

  4. Page Number Position: You can choose where you want your page numbering to appear. For example: Top/Bottom of the page; choose alignment so that it is placed in the centre/right/left.

That's not all. With Bundledocs you also have the ability to apply Bates Numbering. This is particularly helpful for our clients in the U.S. that require this functionality. Better still, bates numbering can also be used if you would like to start your bundle numbering at a particular number. If this sounds like something you may need, then we have detailed just how to do that below. Let's take a look...

Is there a way that I can start numbering for my bundle on a certain number - other than page 1 - in Bundledocs?
— Bundledocs User

If you would like to start page numbering for your bundle on a particular page, then do the following:

  1. Select 'Generate'

  2. Within the 'Bates Numbering' section, select the option to 'Include Bates Page Number'.

  3. Within the 'Bates Start' area, insert the number you would like to begin your page numbering on. For example, insert '23' if you would like to start bundle numbering on page 23. Leave all other fields blank.

  4. Select Generate to complete. A preview window will then appear. If you would like to change anything then simply make the changes/revisions and re-generate.

 

Customizing your bundle numbering really is simple to do. We know that working on large bundles can be complex so we want to make the process of creating bundles simple for you!
