Existing "text variables" function from InDesign to Illustrator
Is it possible to add a similar feature to "text variables" from InDesign to Illustrator? In particular - the file name, modification date.
It would be even better if there were some variables, for example - author, size of the canvas, minimum size of the text used in the project.
Meanwhile you can use Batch Text Edit script or native Find and Replace.
This can be done with Variables manually, somewhat easier with the Variable Importer script, but the method generally sucks.
Limitations of it are described here (and Vasily Hall, the author of the script, comments there):
Text can function as a smart object. Select two text boxes that have the same text (ex. "July 2021") and apply a feature that pairs the two, so when one is updated, the other updates automatically as well.
