Yesterday evening we had a mail with a support request about not being able to data update a document created with Cacidi Extreme and LiveMerge. The customer had created a document with hundreds of product in with the description in Swedish languish and wanted to update the text contents to Finnish languish.
Normally an easy task, just created a copy of the layer you need to update, lock the layers that should NOT be updated, hold down the shift key and press the Update button in the Extreme palette.. When prompted select the data for the new languish, and the data will flow in all the right places. Easy! Continue reading Making Sure Your Extreme/LiveMerge Document Will Update
