Can you show us a mockup of how a card should look with each number of flags? Is each language/flag a separate field in the data file, i.e Language1, Language2, Language3, Language4, or are they lumped together in one field?
Well, the good thing is that the list doesn't exist yet. So I can tailor it to what I need for my import.
The thing is struggle with is keeping it dead center and only showing the languages needed (so sometimes 1, sometimes 2 etc...)
Before we can give you really good advice on how to build the template we need to see what you want to produce, so show us some mock-ups.
I can say without hesitation, though, that you are going to want four fields for languages.
Is this the sort of thing you want to do?
If that is what you want to do, then remove the empty frames post merge using a script from Harbs
If that isn't what you want...let us know.
Take care, Mike
That's it! Thanks!
Works good, btw. Glad it will work for you.
Change of plans due to the people who will provide me the list.
Right now I managed to import the data and remove empty image frames with an Apple script.
The sad thing is that this now leaves me with gaps where the additional languages would be.
Is there away to take the graphics that are left over, and automatically space them and have them aligned next to eachother, in the centre?
Here's what I end up with:
So these would have to be spaced at a certain distance from each other, and aligned in the center.
There will also be other elements in this card, which I have removed (confidential stuff).
Sent a PM with a linky.
take care, Mike
Works like a charm!
