    Same XML content on more than one page?

      (Indesign CC on OSX)

       

      I have a  12-page indesign document in which each page contains a resized version of the same ad. (for placment in a variety of publications)

       

      I have an external xml file that contains master copy. When I link to this file, the copy on the first page functions/updates properly, but when I try to place the xml content into the container frames on any of the other pages, it swaps the content into that new location instead of just placing a duplicate instance of the external data.

       

      I'd like a way to be able to edit master copy externally in an xml file, then have all of my resized ad pages in Indesign update with one press of the 'update all links' button.

       

      Is this possible?
