I haven't got much hair left I've been pulling so much of it out!!!!
I make up contact databases in Indesign and use data merge to create a contact directly.
Here's the problem:
When I go to data merge and select 'multiple copies' and run the data merge, Indesign shifts all my entries up and to the left. In other words it offsets my data. This is truly annoying and more annoying because this problem has been around for a long time and Adobe seems not interested in fixing it.
So. PLEASE Adobe. Do something about this problem.
Single page master page, and never use Preview. Once you have used Preview (maybe not the first time, but at some point) the template will not work properly. The only solution at that point is to copy the template contents into a new file...and not use Preview.
Vey many thanks. I wish Adobe would fix this. This problem has been around for a while. I pay them all this money and I sometimes think I'm paying too much!!!!
But very many thanks. You've got me out of a jam.
