I have a pretty particular question and I’m just lacking the vocabulary to even google it properly. Maybe your minds can help me out. Say I have a map, its fairly complicated and it has a numbered legend with business’s names and locations.
When a new business is added to the map, it changes all the corresponding numbers on the map. This can happen a lot, thus making me go into illustrator to renumber everything.
What I am envisioning is that I make the map in illustrator, place it in indesign. Then, in indesign I have the legend with the businesses in alphabetical order. The number beside each business is connected to a duplicate square and number on the map. So somehow I want to connect the number in my list styles to a duplicate number on the map. That way I can update the business list and the numbers on the map will auto update. Is this possible. I’m wondering if it has to do with maybe one of the following?
Can any indesign guru help me out with this?
