  • InDesign CS4 Data merge issue

    When I merge, (having checked the 'remove blank fields' option), gaps still appear where the fields are blank. Having googled it, I've discovered other people have had the same problem, and it appears to happen wherever there are two blank fields in a row. There's no way I can rearrange the data (it's an address) to ensure two blank fields aren't together.

    Having said this, has anyone had the same problem, and is there a workaround for it? Or any ideas to try?

    Cheers

    I don't do data mergers at all but this video is good but it's CS3 - still might help though

    And the guy will answer any questions if you leave a comment. I think.

      Thank you, I'm glad you like them.

      I am considering using a different color for the portrait and the background, but I'm not sure yet how to manage it.

      These will be produced on an offset printer with a spot resolution of 1200 lpi. The plan is one spot color on each card, with no tints.

      I decided to give this a go. I think I prefer the original pattern, but the results are here for you to decide for yourself.

      Unless you find a CS6 the answer would by no. You are at the mercy of your subscription to Adobe.
