Instant InDesign 2: Automating a Catalog with Data Merge
What do Data Merge, an Excel spreadsheet, the Running Header text variable, the section marker, and Layout Adjustment all have in common? They are just a handful of InDesign tools that can be combined together to create a powerful page production machine. Watch this episode to learn how you can use these five tools to design a template that automates the layout of a product catalog.
I recently delivered a version of this presentation to the New York InDesign User Group. It was so well received that I decided to turn it into a video podcast for everyone to enjoy.
After watching this episode, you might want to practice creating the catalog template yourself. After becoming a member of InstantInDesign.com, you'll be able to download the practice files.
