Hi - Is it possible to drop a styled table in CC Library to use as a template, and have any changes to that library item globally update where the asset is placed?
I'm finding that it stores my table as a it into a "graphic''. I was hoping it would behave similar to a smart object in Photoshop, so when edited within the library, it updates globally. For a bit of context, I'm using a data merge plugin (Easycatalogue) to create a catalogue, and I'm creating templates of tables which I hope to drop in and out of my CC Library.
I hope that this makes sense!
This is the table in InDesign (grouped with a image frame)
Here it is dropped in the CC Library. I'm hoping to have edits made to this library asset affect the my above screen shot.
Do you ned to use a library to accomplish this? If you save the table as an InDesign file you can place it in other InDEsign files. One change to the table will affect all files into which it is placed.
If were not for the data merge I have applied to the table, that would work. I'm applying field specifiers within the table, which is talking to a CSV file. Using the library seems to maintain those field specifiers, which is great, but sadly dropping in another indesign file doesn't maintain the link. Great suggestion though, it hadn't occured to me to try that.
