    Excellent tip! So the choices for the Metadata caption variables are exactly the same as the ones in the Live Caption Setup dialog box … except they’re listed in a diff order.

    And the same Live Caption tricks apply .. after you create your text frame w/the variables, you can add it to a Library for easy reuse in other INDD files. And to get it to show data for a picture without having to overlap the image, just Group the frame with the image frame.

    Very useful tip. Is there a way to set up a text variable to get the metadata from the InDesign document itself? I’m trying to set up a template that “encourages” people to edit the File Info by using text placeholders for the document Title, Author and Subject/Description. If there is a way it might be useful to distinguish between the two.
