Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Using FileMaker with Automator, part of InDesign CS3 Long Documents.
In this movie, we are going to see how we can combine InDesign with FileMaker Pro and with Automator,…an automation program that unfortunately only exists on the Macintosh platform.…So, we have an empty template here with picture frames and text frames and we have our FileMaker Pro database here…with pictures and descriptions of those pictures.…We want to take the data, we want to put it in the layout and we have seen that using XML from FileMaker can be kind…of problematic and tricky and with a lot of hoops to jump through.…
So this, if you are on a Mac, might be a better solution.…First of all, you are going to need to download these automated scripts from this website,…automator.us/examples-04.html and here is where you want to click.…Having done that you can go to Automator where you should see them appear over here, I'm clicking on my Recently Added actions,…Publish to InDesign Text Frames, Publish to InDesign Pictures Frames.…
So, I'm going to, first of all, double click on Publish to InDesign Text Frames…
