    app for automated text frame content creation

    ArrowUpRight

      Now Hello Everyone!

       

      Thank you all of what we used to be discussing before, but now i need to take a more complex discussion.

       

      Start from what we have:

       

      1. The ID CS5 document with several linked textframes within it.

      2. The database consisting of multiple Ads, every can be a formatted text or an image.

      3. Written application that serves the database and able to export a file of any type with by-string Ads definitions or with the XML consisting of multiple nodes.

       

      And we have a need to bring the database's content into the linked textframes of ID document.

       

      Content is the multiple paragraphs of text ads, sometimes images.

       

      And, now i know, there are several scripting-nested abilities to provide data into ID document, such a Script, IDML, and XML.

       

      From their, the XML seems to be a most solving feature, but then how to format it to let the ID to traverse text and image paragraphs?

       

      I mean, is it possible in general (without any third-party software),

      and is there any resources or tutorials to start with it.

       

      Thanks in advance, Alex.
