Can i link a text box to a Word Doc so that when it is edited it will up date the same as an image using ID 6.
We have a lot of cases where our text is amended via word document, It would be nice to be able to link the text boxes, the same way that we link images.
Any sugestions would be gretafuly recived.
Go to InDesign>Preferences>File Handling and tick the checkbox that reads: Create Links When Placing Text and Spreadsheet Files. If you do that while a file is open, it will only create links in that file. If you do it while no document is open, it will become the default for new documents. Existing documents won't change unless you change the preference and then reimport the text files.
When the Word file is updated, the links manager will show the text document as Modified. Update the file the way you would update a modified graphic link.
Be warned, though, that you will lose any formatting you've done in ID when the file updates.
Thank you, easy when you know how, Much appreciated.
