Creating protected templates in Indesign CS2
Posted on 2007-10-04
I built a product specification catalog using Indesign with lots of full-color high quality graphics but also lots of data. The same kinds of text show up in the same places on each page, but with different values.
For the updates to this catalog I'd like to create templates in Indesign that allow users to change text in parts of the template but not alter anything else. I;d like it to work like a User Form in WORD or Excel, where a user enters values into a form that then populate the relevant fields in the template.
Does Indesign support this, or is there a way to use it that is similar to this? Is there a publication out there that people have found useful for this kind of job?
