Hello,

I have defined a book made of several documents. In the first one (reference for style) i have defined a text variable "Title" in one document which is inserted in the top of the master - the same used for all pages of the first document as well as all other documents. The title is well inserted in the top of each page of the 1st document but it doesn't appear in any of the other documents

I have synchronized all documents (text variable selected) but still Title doesn't appear. 

What I'm doing wrong ?

Thanks for help

Hi Anne,

did you synch masters as well?

Yes. I selected in the synchronisation menu all including master. I tried also to delete all masters from the second document, then synchronisation and the master inherited from the reference document appears again but the text variable remains empty.

Hi Anne,

could you do a small sample that is showing the issue with just two InDesign documents where the text variable is synchronized and a little text that is using the variable together with a book file?

Put the files on Dropbox or a similar service and share the download link. I'd like to have a look into the InDesign documents.

 

Thanks,

Hello, in the meantime I found a way. I changed the option for the 2 text variables by using "personalised text" as the text was fixed for all documents (TITLE and author NAME) instead of using the style of TITLE and author name in the first page of the reference document using the option "en-tête continu (style de paragraphe)". With this it is well synchronised in all document of the book.

 

Maybe the option "en-tête continu (style de paragraphe)" can work only within a same document and not across several. 

 

Thank you for your help. Anne
