Data Merge to Unique Names script updated for ID CC 2018

Just a quick note that if you are a user of the Data Merge to Unique Names script, please note that the script has been updated for InDesign CC 2018. If you have not downloaded the latest version, please do so from the downloads page.

The update fixes a bug that would prevent merging to InDesign files due to a packaging issue. That said, make sure to read the instructions prior to use, particularly if using fonts that are dependent on a Document fonts folder for font usage in the file.

    Many thanks, you’re a life saver.

  2. This is one of the most genuinely, specifically useful things on the internet.

  3. Thanks !! I’m a big fan of your scripts !

  4. Based on my initial test, your script looks like it will help me a lot. Can it do a “print booklet” in addition to a “print”? That would help even more?

      I’m a little confused here, this script allows for a data merge file to be exported as uniquely named PDFs or InDesign files only. There is a pro version I’ve been working on that has a print option but that has not been released yet, and the print option is based on print presets already set up on the user’s machine.
      Are you able to contact me directly via my contact page and go into more depth about your question?

    Will this work for Adobe Indesign cc19?
