Best practices

Always expect long data

When preparing layouts for MyDataMerge, you have to create placeholders. Please make sure that text frames which contain placeholders are big enough to provide enough room for even longer text replacements.

Move unneeded stuff to master pages

Instead of keeping all items on the regular pages, move everything that’s does not need to be duplicated (like decoration, background images…) to the master page. For large databases, this will speed up the process a lot.
