- [Voiceover] Hello and welcome to InCopy CS4 and InDesign CS4 flow 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 processes. As an Adobe Certified trainer and publishing consultant, I've helped hundreds of designers and editors learn how to work in parallel using InDesign and InCopy and I never tire of them saying, you know, I can't believe we ever put out an issue with this workflow. This film is for anyone involved in getting a publication put there and out the door.

Designers, editors, production artists, writers, copy editors, and managers, and IT staff who lead them. If you are new to InDesign and InCopy world, let me tell you the reason people are excited about it that InCopy let's editor open InDesign layout while they are still in production. And edit copy to fit, instead of waiting for paper proof to make it's way cubicle for their markup. And since multiple income users can work on the same publishing concurrently, while the designers are developing spreads in InDesign, companies see huge time savings, across turn arounds.

Editors enjoy much more control over content. A designer freed of editorial restrict abilities have more time to spend designing. Those of you familiar with workflow already, and have come to see what's new in this 4 Workflow, won't be disappointed. From auto cross-references, to screen sharing, or just finally being able to aid table text in Story View, CS4 won't disappoint. So sit back and enjoy the show!
