I want to create a template document in InDesign and have an admin use InCopy to open it up and change the text to create our business cards, with a separate saved document for each employee. I created Assignments for the text boxes, but when I open the template to create a new card, it is attached to those same 4 assignments, so they change every previous document when they update.
Is there a way to make this work?
Make an empty parent page.
make the Text frame part of a CC Library
place the library element by holding the alt key
add it after placing to an assignment.
That means I have to create a new document every time I need one. The problem I'm trying to solve is for the InCopy user to be able to make copies from the same template, while saving the new document - with new assignments - each time. From what I'm seeing, if a document has assignments, the assignments are the same each time, so the text just changes in all documents that have those assignments attached.
That's how it works. They're links, just like images.
