    Problem with Data Merge and Anchored Text

    Fabio Michelan

      Hi! I have a problem with Data Merge and Anchored Text in InDesign CC2014.

       

      I'm trying to do a 3 boxed layout as the image below. Text 1 will must be anchored to text 2, that must be anchored to text 3.

      After the anchoring, I've aligned the texts Bottom, and with Auto-Size Height Only, from bottom up.

      After that, I've tried typing anything at text3 box, and the anchored boxes (1 and 2) moved just like they should, everything from bottom up:

      The problem is, as soon as I bring Data merged text to each box, the result is a mess:

      Am I doing something wrong here, or is this a bug with Data Merge + Anchored Texts? (I did the Data Merge just like this video, so I guess that's not the problem here: How to data merge in InDesign tutorial - YouTube)

       

      Thanks in advance!
