Thanks for your reply, but that merely scales the actual TEXT BOX to fit the text. (leaving the font size untouched)
I need the TEXT (font size) to scale (up or down) to fill the text field.
If you have never used scripts before - http://indesignsecrets.com/how-to-install-scripts-in-indesign.php
And you can add a keyboard shortcut to make it even quicker - with Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts, navigate to the scripts and apply your shortcut.
djgruber2, how much hair is left over now?
Yes, I did actually try those scripts.
They maybe could work... I will experiment some more and let you know.
Thanks for your help,
I noticed if the text gets overset the script doesn't work.
You might be able to contact the script creator and see if they can fix it?
lol... it seems to work, but I have another huge problem!
Apparently .CSV files cannot contain page breaks in the data! The data I am trying to merge is a 'letter', with paragraphs, line breaks, etc.,
But, after data merging, it ignores page breaks and only merges the first paragraph of each letter. (sigh)
Solution? Hopefully, an EASY solution. lol as we have thousands of records.
Is there a third party indesign plugin that will allow .xml, or .xls data merge import??
