Hello, i have 16 flyers to make in three sizes, ruturing project. My data will come from a csv or exell file. I would like the fonts to auto adjust the text frame, so 100% of the width of the textframe is used. Is that possible? 
Will i place the date merge tag on the master page or copy and paste on the individual pages? 

Thanks for any help

Cheers,

Ronald

No not true, one post is about auto adjust font size i.c.m with data merge and the other post is about a more specific date merge issue. I can add the two post tohether, but since they are two different questions i though a seperare post would make it more clear.
