    Yearbook automation / scripting / data merge help

    adam_valeriano

      Hi,

       

      I am looking at creating a yearbook and I am trying to make this as easy and automated as I can when it comes to getting the images into the page. I am trying to use a more dynamic layout so I am wondering if there is a way to tell InDesign that I want to use certain boxes for images and how to fill them. If I have Image place holders on a page and I have a certain number of kids in a class I was hoping to have it know to start filling certain place holders with images and when to go to the next page because its a different homeroom or class. PLEASE HELP!!! I have attempted to use a data merge but it doesn't seem to want to fill certain boxes just fill a page with multiples of something until the page is full and I'm looking for it to know when to move on to the next class.

       

       

      Thanks,

      Adam
