I'm looking for any information people can give me about Dynamic Content in both Illustrator and InDesign.
I need a document that automatically updates when a linked document is changed. I've had limited success with InDesign, but Illustrator was very unsucessful.
In Illustrator I have been able to create a Variable Library, but when I come to reload it, all but one set of information vanishes.
You have to do better than that. What EXACTLY do you want to update?
Sorry, I'm new to this.
Basiclly the goal is to have a label where any text amendments that need doing will automatically update in Illustrator or InDesign from the linked file. That way instead of having to update the original file then copy and paste any amendments into the label doc therefore reducing the risk of any mistakes cropping up.
Hope that helps.
Pretty simple with InCopy and InDesign. With Illustrator, I wouldn’t even know where to begin.
You might want to visit the Illustrator forum and ask there. It’s down the hall, two doors on the left.
