[solved]Mail Merge how to?

Postby fostejam » May 29th, 2015, 1:24 pm

Is there a user guide to Printworks (I'm not finding one when I google it)? I've been trying to figure out how to mail merge with a csv file but with no avail.

Well, I figured out how to do the mail merge with a CSV... kind of.

Now the issue is - it only prints 1 page worth of merges.

Here's what's going on:
I'm creating a postcard with mail merge info on it, and I'm printing 4 per page.
The software is only printing 1 page with (with four data source entries, one per card) and seems to ignore that there are over a hundred other rows of data in that column.

How do I get the software to print enough postcards for all the data source entries?

Hi,

Printworks can vary dynamic fields like Address Field or File Data from one document copy to another. To print 4 cards with different details, you should feed dynamic fields from 4 CSV files (one per card).

Printing several cards or labels per page is better supported in Labels & Addresses:
