I want to run a data merge with text and photos and I want to be able to hyperlink the photo to a website. I have about 400 entries with the data merge that will each be on a separate page but I can't for the life of me figure out how to hyperlink the pictures automatically!

  • Hi Nicole. You'd be better off asking this question on InDesign Secrets, or possibly the SuperUser site on StackExchange. On gd.se this falls under the heading of "Technical Support," and is considered off-topic. Sorry about that. – Alan Gilbertson Apr 16 '15 at 20:21
  • I'm open to these kinds of questions here (despite the rules) but you'll get better answers elsewhere. I think you'll have the best luck with an XML workflow. Try asking around on the Adobe InDesign forums. If you want something really efficient, go to the InD Scripting forum. – plainclothes Apr 16 '15 at 20:53

InDesign native Datamerge won't allow you to create hyperlinks on the fly. You need at least Scripting to achieve that. A plugin such as EasyCatalog is also a good candidate.
