Data Merge from InDesign to unique filenames script to remain FREE

Several months ago, I announced the beta version of a script that had been in development for some time – the ability to prepare uniquely named PDF or InDesign files from a Data Merge.

The Beta release of the script is now complete and the final version is now available from the scripts page. More importantly, it will remain as a FREE script for the InDesign community to enjoy.

To see the script in action, I have also produced a series of Youtube videos on the Colecandoo channel.

A Pro version of the script that contains enhanced file naming features and expanded export abilities such as export to png, interactive PDF etc is also available from the scripts page.

I have also made custom versions of this script for specific requests, so if that is something that interests you, contact me via the requests page.

    I’m so happy to have found this script. Unfortunately I get a java script error, code 45, script line 141 when I run the script. What could be wrong?
