the images dont appear at all
you must specify the path to graphics
can see the data merge text, seems to overflow into all the other boxes. (The blank boxes hold white text)
First make a frame to contain the elements, then put inside text frame, number text frame, name text frame, and graphic frame
While I'm a firm believer in using the full path, there are plenty of posts here that say if the images are loose inthe same folder as the data file and template .indd it should work.
@eyerize, can you show us a screen shot of the template doc before the merge? Is this a multiple records per page merge? Did you press the preview button (if you didn't, that's good, and don't do it now).
So you did press the preview button...
First thing I see though, is the image tag is in a text frame, not an image frame, or at least that's the way it looks in the screen cap, but it does appear correct in the prvious version, so it might just be the way the frames are displayed.
But I suspect, too, that the file is now damaged. The preview button is buggy, and once you've pressed it and then done a merge the odds that the file will ever work correctly are small. Best thing is to rebuild the template in a new file and merge without pressing preview (just trust it will work). Copy/paste from the old file seems to be OK to do this.
Thats good advise I will start again and try the merge data rather than the preview. I will check the image box am nearly sure I put it into a text box.
