    Hey guys,

    I need to do an advanced file merge with step and repeat.

    I have separate EPS files that I want laid out in the one layout.

    If the software could spit out multiple pages or multiple files with these layouts once it hits 36 that would be even more awesome.

    Attached is my template of how I'd like the items included for the step and repeat.

    Can I achieve this with indesign? Or another software.

    Any advice is appreciated it's something that will save me a lot of time instead of doing it manually.

    I did a job similar to that, recently, using InDesign -- unfortunately, you can't get the variable spacing as shown in your comp -- but you can make an initial job with x-up, export that as PDF or eps, and then make another layout with those images. Sending this msg from my phone; can respond better when at the office.

    Thanks Garisimo,

    That's what we found. But I thought it was just know knowledge with indesign. I am discussing it with these guys to see if it can be done.
