Hi guys,

 

This might either be a very easy answer or a very complicated answer.

I have a design that needs to be modified for every customer as I go, so its not like I have a list that I can use a CSV file.

 

There are two rows, the top row has one word that is changeable, and the second row can have anywhere between 1 name and 12 names (3 names to a row) that are all seperated by a heart image and all equally spaced.

 

Previously in illustrator I would manually type the word put 5 spaces between each name and then manually move the hearts in between.

 

Is there a more automated way to do this that speeds up time?

 

Thanks so much!

Which version of Illustrator are you using?

 

Can you share a sample file (.ai) including some instructions?

Hi!

 

I've attached a SVG example. I don't have an AI file yet since I am setting it up. I use illustrator 2019.

Right now all of the names are tryped in one single layer (typed and then 5 spaces between each name) but it can be done indvidually if there is some kind of popup asking what to put in or some other method of inputting it faster

Thank you so much.
