My first variable graphic

Ellie Mae

Recommended Posts

I have variable maps for a postcard. They are Illustrator eps files.

I followed instructions by adding resources and locating the pictures, created a new graphic rule using "switch rule" option. I have the switch rule editor up and it shows my rule name- "Maps", Mapname and return value for each map looks good. Below it says If "mapname" == "Albuquerquemap.Eps" then return "AlbequerqueMap.eps".


My maps are not showing up in my graphic box. I have been through the book twice and don't see anything wrong.


Can someone tell me what I might look for? Need live proof in a couple of hours.

I think I may have moved the maps and lost the link. Got that re-linked and now I have maps! Still working on layout, but I get the message:

Is this normal?
