A prefix text for Bates numbering follows this number. The case number prefix should begin with ”.', i.e. a Bates Number starting with the underlined number is assigned as case number. If the case number prefix does not begin with ”.', then the case number should not be included in the Bates Number. The case number prefix should only be used when the number prefix starts with ”.'. When we type in a ”.', a space is added between the number and the ”.'. Therefore, if we see “0-1-2-3” from the previous example, then the Bates number 0-1-2-3 can be used for the case number. We can make this easier (for now) using a ruler and a tape measure. Measurement Method Step 1: Measure the PDF file size. The smaller the PDF file size, the easier it will be to prefix the Bates number. The larger the PDF file size, the greater the number of Bates numbers that we can create per page.

The larger the PDF file size, the greater the number of Bates numbers that we can create per page. Step 2: We can use the ruler to determine the Bates number. The ruler does not need to be exact, but the ruler should be the same size as the PDF file. If the ruler is off by too much, we can easily correct the measurement with the tape measure.

Step 4: Create the Bates Number Set File The Bates Number Set File should be a PDF file with a line of the format: 1. Case Number: 2. Page Number: 3.
