Affinity Publisher (Windows) automated data merge

Recommended Posts

Fairly new to the 1.9 suite of software and haven't found a function I was hoping to be available, could someone direct me, or tell me if it's in development.

I'd like to be able to use Publisher within an automated workflow, perhaps using hotfolders to trigger an automated data merge and exported PDF.

I can use Publisher data merge already using a CSV file and export the resulting PDF(s), but I'd like not to have to open the program to do this (removing human error).

I'm led to believe Adobe's ID server has the same functionality, so I'm hoping AP has something similar. Or command line functionality (like Irfanview).

Thanks for taking the time to read one of a few queries I'll be posting today. Cheers.

Welcome to the Affinity forums @Empwan!

Currently there is no automated workflow, but Scripting / Automation is a much wanted feature. Perhaps this will come in a later version.
