In serting a Julian date on master pages

I work for a small newspaper and one of our master templates needs to contain a Julian date as the edition number. Can anyone tell me how to do this so it updates daily? I'm using InDesign CS5.
Thanks,
Connie

G'day Connie

Check out Text Variables under your Type menu.

You'll probably first want to 'define' your own custom variable — most likely based on the Modification Date default that's already there (which also lists time down to the minute).

Then insert your variable into a text frame on the master page and style it the way you would any other text.


Hope that helps

m.
