    Data merge - multiple records & resultant page off-set images

    John Samson

      I have designed a simple exhibition entry card of 3 fields, a logo (png), and a title box. This simple, grouped, single layer when merged with the data using multiple record layout produces 54 pages of 8 cards per page: exactly as intended. However the resultant group of cards on each page are offset. If the 8 are grouped and then the group centred vertically and horizontally on each page this produces the final printable pages.


      I have read through as many forum entries as seem relevant, have tried centering the master object, played with spacing and margins but always result with 8 offset cards. I have also searched/viewed YouTube, Lynda.com and other possible references. I cannot obviously see where/what the offset numbers tie in with any other page settings. All page settings are zero margins, bleeds etc.


      Where am I going wrong or what is the issue? I guess I could (with learning how to do it) create a macro to group the cards on each page and then centre each but surely this isn't the result you would expect from InDesign.

      Thanks for any help or pointers anyone can offer.
