    User name or 'edited by' text variable

    Mark J Bowyer

      We keep a large library of InDesign files and use a filename and date/time modified text variable as a stamp on each InDesign file so reviewers can maintain version control - these two variables are exported on each proof PDF. In addition to this I would like to add an 'edited by' variable so the last editor of the document is shown on the PDF output - I don't wish to track changes, just add the last editor name to the date and filename stamp.

       

      Is there a way of adding this automatically to an InDesign file - perhaps from the 'User...' option or the Adobe CC log in?

       

      Thanks for any suggestions.
