Client is looking for a templated publishing solution that would allow them to add copy and images to a document, possibly change the layout, be able to pull in data from an excel file to render charts, then save it all as a PDF.
Tried using word for this but everything seems to go apeshit from version to version, mac to PC and even machine to machine.
Is there an online (or other) solution that anyone can recommend?
thanks, more of a newsletter type thing I guess, something that they send out monthly, not a book per se.
I think you'll need to better explain the Excel requirements.
essentially they have an excel document with data for financial stocks, which they would like to display in chart form (line chart, bar graphs ect).
They can produce these charts via excel, and even pull them in to word, but ever time they share the document or need to make changes the layout goes all wonky, so word is a shitty solution currently.
I'm hoping I can use/build something online with a backend CMS,that lets them make copy and layout changes, pull in the excel data and create charts via highcharts or another jquery chart maker, then be able to export it all as a PDF.
Sound a like they need to hire a designer that knows Indesign.
