Overview
In it's simplest form, Doc Variables allow you to quickly add a variable to any document in any style.  A sidebar interface generates a form which can be filled into replace the variable(s) with the values entered.  Great tool for creating templates that might be shared across a team to create consistent output (e.g. contracts, on-boarding information, or client reports).

Latest Feature: Create multiple documents with the same template using a Google Sheet as the source of values for your variables (similar to a mail merge).  This feature is available for trial and subscribers users only.

Note: Doc Variables remains free, but a subscription is required after 20 uses.  Non-subscribers will still be able to use all the basic features of Doc Variables with a delay prior to applying variables.

 Example Variable Syntaxes:

${Variable Name}
${Variable Name::~Default Value} ("Default Value" will be pre-filled)
${Textarea Name::textarea::~Add this text as default content.}
${Select Variable::options::One,~Two,Three} (Two will be selected)
${Other Doc::file} (Imports a separate document)
${My Logo::image::width=200,height=200} (Adds an image from your drive with the width of 200 and height of 200)

Fantastic add-on and exactly what I was looking for. I'm using it to quickly and easily populate a standard template with customized documentation for clients. Add-on is well-maintained!

Very easy to use and does that job really well. I've looked for other ways of solving this for us, and haven't found anything better yet.

Works really well and would recommend. I'd have no problem in paying, but for about 25 uses for just one variable over the last three years, the plans don't make sense for us.

Thanks for the review... there is no need to subscribe if you don't use it that often. You will just need to wait a few seconds before applying variables. The plans are meant to encourage people with a lot of daily uses to support the product.
