InCopy and InDesign CS4 Workflow Essential Training introduces designers and copy editors to a dynamic creative process. Anne-Marie Concepción demonstrates how InCopy integrates with InDesign to make publishing faster, more efficient, and more collaborative. She shows the steps editors and designers can take to work concurrently, reducing the number of revision rounds and offering editors more control over the final publication. For those familiar with this workflow, Anne-Marie highlights several new CS4 features, including automatic cross-references, conditional text, built-in screen sharing, and the ability to edit table text in Story view or Galley view. Exercise files accompany the course.

Topics include:
  • Setting up a workflow: requirements and recommendations
  • Allowing multiple InCopy users to access a single InDesign file
  • Using InCopy's editorial tools and word processing features
  • Managing an InDesign workflow
  • Creating cross-references, hyperlinks, and footnotes
  • Using InCopy as a standalone word processor

Hello and welcome to InCopy CS4 and InDesign CS4 Workflow Essentials. I'm Anne-Marie Concepcion and I'll be your friendly guide to learning how to set up and enjoy a smoothly running production workflow using these two amazing programs. As an Adobe Certified Trainer and publishing consultant I have helped hundreds of designers and editors learn how to work in parallel using InDesign and InCopy. And I never tire of hearing them say, you know I can't believe we ever put out an issue without this workflow.

This video is for anyone involved in getting a publication put together and out the door. Designers, editors, production artists, writers, copyeditors, and the managers and IT staff who support them. If you are new to the InDesign and InCopy workflow, let me tell you the reason that people are excited about it is that InCopy lets editors open InDesign layouts while they are still in production. And edit copy to fit, instead of waiting for a paper proof to make its way to their cubical for their markup. And since multiple InCopy users can work on the same publication concurrently, even while the designer is developing the spreads in InDesign, companies typically see huge time savings in projects' turnarounds. Editors enjoy much more control over the content and the designers, freed of editorial responsibilities, have more time to spend designing.

Those of you familiar with the workflow already and have come here to see what's new in the CS4 workflow won't be disappointed. From automatic cross-references to built-in screen sharing, or even just finally being able to edit table text in Story view, CS4 does not disappoint. So sit back and enjoy the show, and I'll see you in Chapter 1.
