Card at Work: 11 – Inserting Optional Line Breaks in DataMerge
 
It's time for a new episode of Card at Work, the video series covering the basics of designing cards for tabletop games.

This time we're building on the GREP tricks from

the last episode on inline icons

and using similar technique to insert optional line breaks within a single cell of a spreadsheet. Using this method, you can drop a line break into a single block of text without needing a manual line break in indesign itself OR using a find-replace after merging the document.



This is my first Card at Work episode in HD resolution. I'm slowly figuring out Adobe Premiere so hopefully these episodes will be even higher quality as time goes on.



P.S. I'll be streaming today live at around noon EST. I'll be working on a new round of layout updates for Chimera Station from Tasty Minstrel Games at
