Can any one help with a indesign image data merge issue? I am trying to layout a catalogue, but have been unable to get the images to import through the data merge. I have tried using relative and absolute paths and still no joy. To try and eliminate where the issue was occurring I created a new csv with just one line and pasted the absolute path of a screen shot from my desktop into the csv.
The data fields appear fine as before, but the image still refuses to appear in the preview. When I merge the document the image still doesn't appear in the document, but the link does appear in the links pane.
Does anybody have any idea where I'm going wrong?
NB I'm using Indesign CC on a Mac OS x 10.9.4
Try changing the column name for the images to @Image, not what you have. I also don't like using filenames with spaces, so if there is a further issue, try changing a couple of your files' names and change the column in the merge file.
If you still have issues, let us know.
Oh...try to avoid using the Preview. It's buggy and can cause unpredictable results and or corruption in the merge file.
Hi Mike thanks for your reply renaming the category to @Image seems to have done the trick much appreciated!
