      @robinochsner - yes it can. Re-read my link and you will see screenshots of this happening.

      This is already possible from InDesign, but it does require some setup. See my article at InDesignsecrets: https://indesignsecrets.com/applying-any-cmyk-color-during-a-data-merge.php

              If you want to hide the start menu for good, uncheck the 'show "start" Workspace when no documents are open' checkbox in the preferences/general.
              If having no luck with this, make a new blank text file in notepad or textedit and add the following line:
              app.generalPreferences.showWhatsNewOnStartup = false;
              save the file as "goawaystartupscreen.jsx" and save it to the following location:
              /Applications/Adobe InDesign CC 2019/Scripts/startup scripts/goawaystartupscreen.jsx

                  until this is resolved, would this solution work? http://in-tools.com/article/scripts-blog/preference-manager-script/

                        THIS! It also ties into giving variables the ability to go over one line.
                        I had a technique on indesignsecrets.com to make a side-tab with one master page that uses chartwell to 'push' the tab down the page based on the number in the section variable, BUT if I could use a GREP style to do this, I could use a GREPGraph.

                          Hi All,

                          Can you explain how this would be used, is the end goal to find a some stuff restricting the search to Tables, or is it something else. It would really help if you can share how you plan to use this new GREP code for tables.

                          Thanks
                          Javed

                                  Hi All, thanks for this feature suggestion.

                                  If I understand this correctly the idea here is that you need a faster way to be able to apply Master Pages to the various pages in the document. One use case is that you want to apply a particular master page to Even and Odd pages.

                                  Are there other such scenarios too, where you need more support. It would be helpful if you can mention other such scenarios.

                                  Thanks

                                      I agree with other posters. This is hardly fixed. There isn't the ability to add the following buttons that can be added in a PDF: insert image button, insert barcode button, date button. At the very least, please add these options to the buttons and forms panel.

                                      Colin Flashman commented  · 

                                      In addition, the Forms panel at least needs to be brought up to date to include the latest fields that can be imported via Acrobat DC such as Image, Date or Barcode.

                                          Hello All,

                                          Thank you for your patience all this while.

                                          If you are unable to see the update notification yet, open the menu (three dots) from the top-right of Creative Cloud desktop application and click on ‘Check For App Updates’.

                                          Running 14.0.1 on Mac OSX 10.13.6 and I disagree that the issue has been fixed, as it is still happening.
