If you use Illustrator to create many variations of the same item - such as name tags that have text and images - you'll be repeating the same steps over and over and over and... Automate that process!
A new Illustrator script called "VariableImporter.jsx" makes dynamic data user-friendly and accessible to all creative professionals by providing a robust interface for importing data from .csv and .txt files. This presentation will illuminate the usage of Illustrator's variable data feature and showcase several sample projects to show real-life scenarios where Illustrator's unique powerful features are used with text data to create sets of robust dynamic documents.
