QR Code Data Merge in Adobe InDesign
This feature helps with importing QR codes within data merge variable data.
This is a New to me feature. I found it when I needed to import 653 QR codes into a project.
Create your CSV but where the QR code is the header needs to start with the “#” I did #QRQR.
I was lucky, mine was just text, so in the data cells, it just needs that text. My QR code needed to be the text with the part number as the text.
However, If you need email, links, text messages etc, it requires more info in the cell. Creative Pro explains that more!
To apply the QR, make a graphic box where you want the QR Code located. Then on the data merge palette, click on the one that corresponds to your QR code. Once you do that, that box turns cyan color linking the QR info in your CSV file. (See graphic above).
When you have your text and other sections needing variable data Is done, just simply click the merge variable Data to create and then tweak what needs done.
