The LexisNexis Adobe CaseMap plug-in allows continuous bates numbering. The plug-in allows you to save the current bates numbering sequence, as well as prefixes, for future use. For example: Let's say one day I bates number a serious of documents (say it ends up being A0001-A0113). And then a week later I need to bates stamp more documents. I click on the name of the series I last saved and then my new files will automatically begin at A0114.
Since I use the bates stamping tool for legal document productions, this is very important to avoid accidentally producing documents with the same bates number, and to help with any document productions/bates number subsequent to the original productions.
Since my CaseMap plug-in doesn't seem to want to work with Acrobat DC, it would be nice if Adobe's bates stamping capabilities offered the same option.
