Hi

I created a data merge with circle image frames that contains images in

Now I want to replace all these cirlce image frames with any other image frame from my choice such as using pen tool or another clipping path without repeating data merge from start

 

Is there a script or method can do that ?

Thanks

Pathfinder > Convert to Shape comes to mind, but I don't know how to script that.

Also, if you edit the frame on the master, shouldn't it update on the page? Or do you want to customize each one?

Set up object styles for the shapes then go through and apply them?

Assign an object style to the template circle and use Find Object panel to replace with new style.

Probably will need to run the merge again. Or set up the shapes on different layers, apply the merge to all of them, then toggle layers on/off post merge.
