I am updating a catalog in InDesign. I would like to be able to get all of the data in the catalog in an external data file. This data file would have to be searchable, reportable and shareable. In essence I have customers who want access to the data for their web sites - some want all the data and some want only selected pieces. When I say data, I mean the pictures and all the text boxes too. Help!!!!
There are several plugins like smart catalog or easy catalog, but also others, which are linking InDesign content to a database, some in both directions, which means, changes done in InDesign are written to the DB and the other way too.
