Adobe Collaborative Editorial Workflow

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

IDandICCreating a publication requires carefully-managed collaboration among groups of writers, editors, designers and production staff, all of whom are trying to meet critical deadlines. These groups need an efficient workflow, but often make do 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 is needed so that a publishing staff can devote more time to the quality of their work and less to the mechanics of the process.

Adobe InCopy® is designed to integrate with Adobe InDesign® to provide collaboration tools for any size workgroup. (This is sometimes referred to as “Adobe LiveEdit”.) InCopy® lets writers and editors work on their stories on a layout while designers simultaneously work on the same layout in InDesign. Because InCopy® and InDesign® share functionality for composing text and displaying graphics, everyone participating can visualize exactly how copy and layout interact throughout the entire workflow.
