Many Adobe InDesign users create articles in programs like Microsoft Word, then place their content into an InDesign layout, which only the designer has access to. InCopy provides a two-way street where editors and writers can edit content in InDesign while a designer simultaneously works on the design portion of the project, and the text formatting is retained in both programs. In this course, learn how to write content using InCopy, style text appropriately so that it transfers to the InDesign layout, and make content available to writers and editors from within InDesign. Author Chad Chelius also ensures you get a handle working with tables, Track Changes, graphics, and templates in InCopy.
(music playing) Hi. My name's Chad Chelius. I'm a trainer, author, consultant and an InDesign and InCopy user since the programs were released more than ten years ago. In this workshop, I'll show you how InCopy integrates into your existing InDesign workflow. Allowing writers and editors to create content that can be seamlessly used in an InDesign layout and how that content can continue to be edited after being placed in the layout.
Many of you are probably creating articles in programs such as Microsoft Word and then placing the content into InDesign although this process can be somewhat effective it's a one way street. Once you place that content into an InDesign layout, only the designer has access to the content and can make changes to it. InCopy changes this by providing a two way street where editors and writers can edit content in an InDesign layout while the designer simultaneously works on the design portion of the project. What's more, the text formatting is retained in both programs.
Very cool. This workshop is for designers who want to focus on the visual aspects of a project while providing other user's access to make text changes and other minor adjustment to the layout's content, allowing each user to do what they do best. It's also for writers and editors who want to more robust tool when working with text and even images in a layout. You'll learn how to write content using InCopy and how to style text appropriately so that it transfers to the InDesign layout. I'll also show you how to make content available to writers and editors from within InDesign and how to get a handle on some tricky features in InCopy. Such as working with tables, using track changes, working with graphics, and how to utilize templates to work more efficiently.
I hope you find this course useful and that you have fun learning how to make Adobe InCopy an essential and effective part of your workflow.
