In design driven variable data publishing, this is nothing less than a revolution!

Ease of use
For the graphic designer, working with Cacidi LiveMerge Light is as simple as:
1. Select or search the content/product you need
2. Drag and drop the design from the design library palette onto the page layout
Even creating new designs happen faster than you will believe. Any tekst you like to dynamically feed and update from the data source, you just place brackets [ ] around. Dynamic image links just as easy.

Live objects
Click a button once, and your content is immediately updated to current state, should a colleague of yours, or even an automated process, parallel to your work have changed content in the data source.

Direct file based connection
Cacidi LiveMerge Light allows you to connect directly to a flat file like a tab-, comma or semocolon separated file, for a live feed of data. With no stops in between, you draw data directly from the file during your catalogue production. Optionally you are able to query directly from Cacidi LiveMerge Light regular text search directly within your data file.
Each separate project created with Cacidi LiveMerge Light is allowed its own settings and definitions for files and querying.
