Importing text from .CSV or .TXT
on Oct 25, 2005 at 5:16:29 pm

As part of an interactive DVD project, I have been asked to produce over 2000 720x576 BMP's. Each of the individual BMP's is essentially a multiple choice question, with 5 text fields over an identical background image.

I have been supplied the text for each image in plain ASCII, and also CSV.

My question is... Short of manually copy and pasting each piece of text over the relevant field of the background, is there any other batch method of doing this? I am a PS user by default, and perhaps there is some other tool I should be using instead.

My fingers and sanity would both be very grateful for any help or advice.

Thx
