    How to move images/cells in a table automatically?

    TiltedEye Level 1



      I'm fairly new to InDesign btw. And, I have been looking for the answer before I started this topic.


      Here is the problem I have:

      Based on instructions from the client, I need to create a catalog where there are certain "patterns" and "classes" (PaCs).


      I created a table (based on tutorials from Adobe and Lynda) and I (manually) changed all the PaCs names and placed provided pictures.

      It turns out, that some PaCs are missing like on the picture below. They are simply not developed yet by the manufacturer.


      The requirements are:

      • create PaCs continuously, with no missing cells

      • when the Pattern will be developed and assign to a certain Class, it should be placed in order (between 2 neighboring PaCs)

           -so pretty much, moving everything again


      This is a day of work or more to do this manually. I care about my client and I don't want to make him pay simply because I don't have required knowledge. These are just my work ethics.




      1. Is there any process to speed this up? Move the cells automatically without copying and pasting?

      2. Is there any more proper way of doing that type of a catalog?
