Since the v. 3.9 Edi - Texteditor can generate additional metadata files during mail merge.
Metadata describes the generated documents in a machine friendly format.
Providing metadata is very useful if the mail merged documents should be automatically processed by a third party software.
Edi appends the metadata as additional text files per each generated document, from its mail merge fields.
ini as the metadata file type, all mail merge fields are automatically formatted as structured data in the selected file format.
Furthermore you can generate your custom metadata files, e.g.
yaml, by manually inserting mail merge fields onto the metadata editor.
