(PNG) Export -> Adjustable file names based on data merge

Recommended Posts


I'm totally blown away by the new data merge feature, it's really awesome already!

There's one thing that I am used to by using Photoshop's (somewhat awkward) data merge feature:

After creating the merged document, I need to save all pages separately as PNG files. It would be so helpful if Publisher offered a way to assign file names based on a specific field from the data merge.

Would something like this be possible?

Why this way? If I recall it correctly, the name for the files is the one you type in at export. Is that not enough? Something else would be if every page should get its own export name.

Yes, you're right, but that's not enough. I need different and easily recognizable names for each exported page. Photoshop handles this by using a field from my data source, which is very comfortable.

BTW, there's at least one other user, who's looking for something like this, as well:
