I want to create a template name tag in illustrator with a given design, and then import the SVG into FMP and have FMP grab the appropriate fields. Long term there will be something like 100 different templates I will need to use.

 

 

I know this has to do with creating layers in Illustrator, naming them something specific, and then somewhere in FMP creating those same names for field contents and having them point to one another.

Thanks
