I've an .ai file mapped to be used with a csv files in order to have dynamic texts.
With the first csv file I've imported in the .ai file, and saved it, all works fine.
If I update the csv and try to import it again Illustrator give me back an uknown error and I'm not able to proceed
Can someone help me please ?
Apologies for the delayed response. I hope your issue is resolved now. If you still have issues, would you mind sharing version of OS & Illustrator? Does it happen while working with a specific file or all?
You may also share screenshots or a small video of your workflow. This information would help us assist you accordingly.
It seems it is not possible to upload .ai files . 😞
I'm attaching a series of screenshots hoping to help you understanding the scenario.
I'm expecting that after importing the new updated csv I'll see a new additional data set 3 added to the previously deifined data set 1 and data set 2.
Let me know if more is needed for helping
If you close out the Illy doc and then open it again can you use the new csv file?
Maybe I got the root cause of this
after some testing it seems that this error happens when I link the same variable to more than a single text object.
E.g. I've those text object in the illustrator file 'Text1' 'Text2' 'Text3' and I make them dynamic texts by linking them to the same 'Variable A' from the CSV file 1. Loading a new CSV file 2 with same 'Variable A' modified then the uknown error happens.
Should I open a different properly named thread for this ?
Please can you help me solve this ?
