Importing a list of items for CS6 forms
One of the limitations of the new list boxes and combo boxes in InDesign CS6 is that you have to enter each item in a list one by one. You can’t import a list of items from a text file . . . or can you?
As reported on the New York InDesign User Group an amazing thing happened in the middle of my presentation on working with forms in CS6.
Chuck Weger, scripter extraordinaire, happened to be in the audience. And when he heard me complain that you can’t import a text file of items, Chuck took out his computer and begain to write code.
Before my presentation was finished, Chuck already had a script written which he named “ComboMambo.”
