You must have the Enterprise version of PDF Converter to have access to the Bates stamping feature of PDF Converter. Get to the Bates Stamping function by clicking Document > Bates Numbering > Add. After selecting the document to insert Bates Numbering to, you will be presented with options on configuring the Bates Numbering scheme. Tips below.

 When setting the Bates Numbering Options, you can configure the "Starting Number" to a value from 1 to 1000. If you manually type in a number higher than 1000 and click "OK", the "Start Number" will automatically be reduced to 1000. If you need to use a "Start Number" higher than 1000, follow the steps below to manually edit the value in the inserted macro:

  1. Set the "Start Number" to "512" in the Bates Numbering Options dialog, configure the other options if needed and then click "OK" to close the dialog.
  2. Place the cursor into the desired location to insert the Bates Number to (for example: Left Header) then click the "Insert" button. The macro of the Bates Numbering scheme will be inserted into the proper location.
  3. Place the mouse cursor in the text box where the macro was inserted, and modify the "512" number to the desired starting value (for example: 1000).
  4. After setting the remaining Bates Numbering options, click "OK" to apply the Bates Numbering scheme.

When setting the 
Bates Numbering Options, you configure the "Bates Numbering Options" to a value from 6 to 15. If you manually type in a number lower than 6 or higher than 15 and clicks "OK", the "Bates Numbering Options" will automatically be increased to 6 or reduced to 15. To overide that default, follow these steps to manually edit the value in the inserted macro:
  1. Set the "Number of Digits" to "6" in the Bates Numbering Options dialog, configure the other options if needed and then click "OK" to close the dialog.
  2. Place the cursor into the desired location to insert the Bates Number to (for example: Left Header) then click the "Insert" button. The macro of the Bates Numbering scheme will be inserted into the proper location.
  3. Place the mouse cursor in the text box where the macro was inserted, and modify the "6" number to the desired starting value (for example: 4).
  4. After setting the remaining Bates Numbering options, click "OK" to apply the Bates Numbering scheme.
