Hello, one more vote for "data merge" tool like in InDesign. I use this function mostly for designing business cards and small catalogs, labels for boxes etc ... Everything, that have same desing and elements, that change always on same places and can be read frome some kind of database.

Another pageplus user here that regularly uses the mailmerge feature. It's a must have for me, and many others in my organisation (which has about 300 ppX8/X9 users)

Yes definitelly I agree connection to data source for printing x number of same designs with different data on selected fields is a must feature. As well tables with calculations in cells would be good.

What also would be awesome is an publisher linux server client - which can use publisher files built on an windows/mac desktop - so a server can directly build pdf files out of these templates for Webservices :)

+1 to data merge. I have been excited to test out the beta for a year now but once I learned their was no data merge I have no real use case anymore. Unfortunately without data merge the product is DOA for me.

Just wanted to add, that without data merge. Publisher is also a no go for me. I need it for my workflow, which revolves around rapid paper prototyping using .csv files. My work would be abyssmal without it. It's why several other publishing apps failed to capture my interest. As someone who has purchased both other products in your line, I would ask that this be marked as a high priority feature for a final release. I want to be rid of that other company, and their rental policies, once and for all.


Th other features are great, but without Data/Mail merge, Publisher is unusable for me.

I have pinned this popular post to the top of the forum for others to find more easily. I cannot say if this will be implemented anytime soon, but clearly it would be desirable to you and others.
