    Editing and Creating dynamic textfields in InDesign CC

    ScarthCaroth

      Hi there,

       

      I've been googling a bit and haven't found a straightforward answer to my problem. The thing I want to do is creating and editing dynamic textfields.

       

      What do I have?

      I have a document which is a certificate / diploma which containts several textfields that has to be dynamic content (e.g Student Name, Date, Course Name and Course Leader)

       

      What do I want?

      So firstly, how do I set up a textfield as dynamic so that it can be adjusted via code?

      Is there a script that I can run where I fill in several names (the Student Names, Date, Course Name and Course Leader) and the script exports several pdf files of the certificate with the adjusted names.

       

      Can this be done?
