Hey guys. Trying to solve an InDesign problem. I'm trying to anchor a text box to a text box in the master page.
In the master page, I'll need to update xxxxx and yyyyy for the entire document. zzzzz is custom on every page. So, I'd like zzzzz to move left and right accordingly. Is this possible?
I'm not 100% on what you are trying to achieve, but how about the following solution (not using the anchored text frame) instead.
First of all define three text variables for each of the three pieces of text.
Next for the third Variable: does the text for this ZZZZZ by any chance appear as formatted text on the page somewhere? And is it formatted with a paragraph style? (or a character style). In that case you can define the third variable as follows:
You are now ready to insert the three text variables in a single text frame on the Master page.
Would this solution work?
