Formatting Rules – Duplicating a Frame for Each Cell of a Tabular Field

Sometimes is useful to break out things like colours into a tabular field and then populate these as a set of frames, one for each colour. The frames might contain a Swatch and a swatch name.

The example below iterates though the Colour tabular field, duplicating the frame given the Script Label group. It then populates it with the data for each cell. If the group is anchored in a text frame it will be duplicated immediately after in the text flow.
