- The topic ‘Importing mixed fonts in excel cell into InDesign’ is closed to new replies.
Is it possible for a cell/column to be imported into InDesign that contains two types of font (used because of a different language – a Greek Polytonic font) with InDesign recognising the changes in font? The position of the words which contain different the two types of font varies from cell to cell, so I can’t set my InDesign template up to anticipate the change.
Hi Neilads and welcome to the forum. Sorry for the delay – we’ve had technical issues and the notification about your topic got lost, we apologize.
MyDataMerge imports just content from Excel or CSV – no formatting.
But formatting can be applied to InDesign:
Do you have the possibility to split the text with the 2 fonts in two columns in Excel?
Col A: Text with font 1
Col B: Text with font 2
Then we have a solution directly.
Another solution will come up with one of the next sub versions. We’re currently working on a big automation update where -in your case- you can run custom InDesign Scripts after the merge that can do the job.
