I have been searching high and low for several days to no avail. Apologies if this has been answered over and over, and I just haven't found the thread. My situation...
We create booklets, each with different topics, but all have certain portions that are consistent (Appendix, Resources, etc.). I would like to have the consistent portions as individual InDesign files and "link" them to the various booklets — the goal being, when I make a change to, say, the Resources file, all references in the various booklets get updated.
Right now, we must copy and paste the updated information across all individual booklets — tedious.
I know I can use the Place command, but that causes the link to be a graphic — not a text box.
If we try to use a Plain Text file, we lose all formatting.
Is there a way to do what I'm asking? Have I overlooked something?
Ahh, linking is a huge step forward — that preference wasn't on. When I did a small test, things seem to be working as desired. I now wish Adobe could read the native Apple Pages format because we don't use MS Word, haha!
