Auto-Incrementing Number Replacement

The find/replace option allows the insertion of numbers that increment/decrement by a fixed value on each subsequent outline item that matches the regular expression in the Find field.

$[n1,n2]

Although the term looks like regular expression syntax this is not a regular expression, yet it is only available when regular expression is enabled in the dialog and the action is Replace All. Only the first appearance of this syntax will be used for the replacement value. If you enter this syntax multiple times it will insert the value of the first occurrence multiple times.

Use the syntax $[n1,n2] in the Replacement field to insert the numbers. n1 is the starting number, n2 is the increment value. To decrement use a negative value.
