I have managed to set one object as a variable and assign a data source in illustrator however I am a little stumped as to how I assign the same variable to multiple text objects.

I have design where I need the same text to appear 16 times in different locations on the same document, the only way I can see how to do it is to set each of the 16 text objects as different variables and have the same data repeated 16 times in the spreadsheet.

Is there a better way?

  • I think in Indesign (using data merge) it is possible – Never used Illustrator for this so don't know. Was surprised Illustrator even has this feature, as to me it seems like Indesign is a much more suitable app for this kind of work. Sep 9 at 10:57
