Hello! I'm looking to help a colleague into streamlining a process. We have to display images full page in an Indesign Document and every time we drop and image onto a page, we then need to edit the caption underneath with the file name. Just wondering if there is a way to automate this process? Any scripts available?
When you place an image you can turn on the capture function. There are normal and live versions. The normal labeling creates a text as text is, the live version creates a variable which would change if the image or the text in the meta information changes, but it behaves like a single character which causes problems how the text will run in the text frame.
What is drawn out of the Meta must be set up before in the caption set up option.
When you drag and drop an image from the finder or from Bridge you can't activate this option.
BTW I use it a different way which seems to me faster. I assign a shortcut to the labeling command and when I have imported the image, I click this shortcut and in a second step I apply an Object style which will format the text frame including Paragraph style which might be different on a dark or bright photo or upon a graphic.
Normally I edit all meta information in Adobe Bridge, which is the fastest way to handle it.
Thank you so much! It's perfect!
