Adobe InCopy Collaborative Editorial Workflow

Bridge InCopy with InDesign using the Adobe InCopy Collaborative Editorial Workflow.

Adobe InCopy Collaborative Editorial WorkflowCreating a publication requires a carefully-managed collaboration among writers, editors, designers & 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 Collaborative Editorial Workflow 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 small to medium-sized workgroup. (For large workgroups, consider using the powerful features of the vjoon K4 Publishing Platform). 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.

Reduce review-and-revision cycles between editors and designers, improve editorial control over copy, and get your publications to market faster!

How it works:

Making the transition to an InCopy workflow is surprisingly easy. InDesign CC contains all the tools necessary for design and production staff to participate in the workflow, so all that’s needed is to install InCopy CC on the editorial workstations. InCopy can be integrated at any stage of the editorial process. An editor may begin composing a story directly in InCopy or may choose to import finished content created in Word and use InCopy only for late-stage copyfitting in the layout.
