    Change text variables with a text field.

    Benedikt Schultz

      I am trying to create a form that fills out business cards on page 2 and 3 of an document (page one will be where the user can input their personal data that is applied on the cards).

      Now my solution is to use text variables (custom text) that show the text on the business cards.

      What i need is a way to change text variables with text fields after the indesign is exported as a pdf interactive.


      of course if there is another solution i would gladly accept it sadly wasnt able to find anything on the internet for the last few hours.


      i am using indesign cs6 on a mac osx 10.9.5 and am a complete newcomer to interactive pdfs (so go easy on me please )
