Adobe Collaborative Workflow with InCopy

Bridge Adobe InCopy® with InDesign® to improve your workflow.

IDandICCreating a publication requires carefully-managed collaboration among writers, editors, designers and production staff. All of whom are trying to meet critical deadlines. But in order to meet those deadlines, a workflow often gets cobbled together with a combination of Microsoft Word, Adobe InDesign, and many rounds of paper proofs. This is ineffective and can lead to delays, workarounds, and compromised quality. A more efficient solution using Adobe InCopy allows a publishing staff to devote more time to the quality of their work and less to the logistics of the process.

Adobe InCopy is designed to integrate with Adobe InDesign to provide collaboration tools for any size workgroup. (This was previously referred to as “Adobe LiveEdit”.) InCopy lets copywriters and editors style text, track changes, and make other modifications to a document while designers work on the same layout simultaneously in Adobe InDesign. All without overwriting each other’s contributions. And because InCopy and InDesign share functionality for composing text and displaying graphics, everyone participating can easily visualize exactly how copy and layout interact throughout the entire workflow.
