Hi Good Evening...

I am using CC2018. Attached here one example.

I am creating number of visiting cards for Hotels & Companies. So I choose this way, each person in one layer now almost 80 visiting cards I made in one Ai File. I work in printing press. So regularly Clients ask me to reprint some of these v-cards. Now I searching manually one by one.

So how can I search or locate that particular name from this Layer Panel.

Do you have any other good suggestion to save large number of v-card in one place. Please let me know.

Thanks

You have 1 layer for 1 client, right? So you have each name typed once.

Then you can do the following:

1. Show all layersin the Layers panel.

2. Edit > Find & Replace > Enter the name and click Find button. You will have the neeede name selected. The same time you will see the name and its layer shown in the layer panel/

3.Click on the Eye icon holding Alt (Option) button. All other layers become hidden.

Now you can print this layer
