I am creating a data merge but I only want two records per page and I want them in a specific layout. These are for postcards which I am printing 2-up on a page. However, when I set up the multiple record merge, a grid of merged names is automatically created, rather than filling the placeholders I already set up. How can I get around this?
This is how I set up the master page (also getting the same problem on the document page, however):
These are the two options I end up with:
For a multiple record merge you need one set of placeholders, then set the margins and spacing in the merge options so the positioning is correct.
Warning: Using Preview in a multiple record merge will corrupt the file. If you press the preview button, Undo after looking at the preview, then merge without using preview.
