with Colin Fleming

Video: Welcome

InCopy CS2 Essential Training teaches you how InCopy, in conjunction with InDesign, can facilitate the print publishing workflows between designers, editors, and writers. Adobe Certified Instructor Colin Fleming shows you how each project contributor can use InCopy in a way that is relevant to his or her particular tasks. Editors and writers will learn how to use InCopy CS2's editing tools, including styles, notes, text macros, and the thesaurus. They will also see how InCopy works with InDesign layouts. Designers will learn about InDesign CS2's new InCopy tools, how to export content for external editing with InCopy, and how to incorporate those edits back into layouts. Exercise files accompany the training videos, allowing you to follow along and learn at your own pace.
