The screen shot below is of an InDesign document we use at event registration for attendees who need name tags printed immediately. This document prints onto a pre-perforated and pre-scored sheet of stock that quickly allows us to remove the middle portion of the page, fold it in half and place into a plastic name tag holder for a double-sided name tag.
Not everyone who works registration is a whiz at using InDesign and I'm trying to make this process as easy as possible. My question is this: Is there a way that by typing the attendee name and company name in the two text boxes on the top half of the page that InDesign will autofill the type into the other two text boxes on the bottom half of the page? I realize this is a simple copy and paste but for users who don't routinely use design software, it's not as intuitive as it is for those who do.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Select the frame text in the top half page, then Edit>Place and link.
Click on the bottom half page then rotate the frames. And when you type in the top frame you can update the link from links panel.
Perfect. Thank you!
