I'm trying to generate documents where the text and an image will be parsed from a spreadsheet. Gotten so far as to import my datasets (with Silly-V's script if that makes any difference), and the text variable is bound to the correct text object. The image variable, however, cannot be bound to my image. I made sure it was a placed (linked) image, but the "make object dynamic" button is grayed out when I try to bind it to the image variable. I also tried to do it through the VariableImporter script (Bind by name), and it didn't "find" the image when I tested. I have tried with other images, other formats, still no luck.
What can I be doing wrong?
Answering myself in case anyone runs into the same problem: I was trying to use .svg images, which aparently cannot be linked, they're automatically imported. converted them all to eps and it's now working
I'm having this problem - tried jpg, png, eps, ai and a bunch of other things as well. Texts allow me to link them, but the images I place refuse to. What's going on?
Hello Mornlite, could you fix it? I'm having the same problem. Help.
So for me the object that you are binding cannot be in a group. so select everything and ungroup the object, select all items then press cmd+shift+G
