    Currently there is no 'automatic' way of entering repeatable variables into text fields. For example a date at the top of each page, or an incremental page number, or a formula etc. Can Illustrator please add maybe a custom field onto the existing variables panel?

    The main benefit would be for labelling or repeating document information across pages or in multiple places within a document.
    Example. I Create a header page with a date "January 2020" and a version number 'Ver 23'. I would add these two values to a custom variable palette and can then create linked text fields at will across my document(s) without having to retype them every time. If I want to update the version or Date, I only have to type the new value once and ALL the linked text fields will automatically update.

    Yes, this is similar to how pages and master data work in inDesign, but just a little of this feature would be useful here.

    This is almost similar to having a library item, such as an external logo, but this would be stored internally with each document.

    Even better when inputting text, you could press your custom entry on the dialog window and it would enter it into the text. I see the format of dates, and output to also be customizable.
