    Any way the end-use can modify Merge Text so that the “left” option is the default, instead of “top”? Thats’ the one I use 99% of the time.

  2. Justin says:

    Have you tested to see that there’s a difference? I believe that the second-level sorting for “top” is “left.” So they should work the same in most cases.

    Hi, any script to Update All Legacy Text in Illustrator?
    I cannot insert it in an Action….
    Thnx

      1. Claudia says:

        Thank you Justin for the quick answer, probably I wasn’t clear enough. I know this feature, but it seems Illustrator does not allow to insert it in an Action (I’m using cs2), and since I need to Update All Legacy Text in 3000 eps files I was wondering if there’s a script to insert it in an Action and do it automatically on batches.
        Thnx

      2. Justin says:

        CS2? Not sure I can be of much help there. That feature might be worth upgrading.

    Will you please share code for newOminoDialog, which is used in MergeTextframes script in Indesign . As I debug without installing it gives an error.
    Please let me know

    1. Justin says:

      What are you debugging? The old version of MergeText?

    I have designed a product catalogue in InDesign. Each product has a unique product code mentioned . Now I got an excel file from client with updated product codes. Excel has 2 columns. 1 with old codes and second with new code. I want to update all of them in one go, with out manually going to each product and replacing it with new code. Is there a way this can be automated.

    1. Justin says:

      Yes, but not my area of expertise. You’ll want to look up “data merge.” The solution is likely there. If not, it may require scripting.
