on the title page of may document I put the date and the version number of my document. I want those to appear again on every page of my document, but not in the same location as and smaller than on the title page. So, I could simply create new text boxes on the masters and put the date and revision number in those boxes. But this means that everytime I update them on the title page, I have to update them on the master as well.
I want to set the date manually, so I think I cannot use text variables. I tried cross references, but this turns the text on the master pages into links to my title page which I do not want.
Is there a way to automatically fill the text boxes on the master with the date and version number of the title page?
Content Collector with Map Styles
Step 1: Open the Content Collector > Click the Collector (Pick-up) Button > Click frame
Step 2: Click the Placer (put-down) button > enable Create Link > enable Map Styles > Choose from the 3 buttons if you want place once or more times, etc. I said once, then unload.
Step 3: Click the Pencil: Edit Style Mapping
Hidden step: First, create your styles. You said you want different sizes; so Style Mapping is required.
My style type is Paragraph, which should work for you.
Choose new style mapping and map one style to the other.
Step 4: Your cursor is loaded. You are on the Place (Put-down) tool. Click to place. In this example the top date is larger, the pasted date is formatted smaller with a different style.
Step 5: With the Type tool, change the date. Update the Link.
Many thanks, that's exactly what i was looking for!
