Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video InCopy workflows, part of Creating Long Documents with InDesign.
In this video, we'll look at two options for using InCopy;…a local layout based workflow where everyone works off the same server, and a…remote layout based workflow where people in different locations access…files through drop box.…First, let's look at the local layout-based workflow.…In this workflow, the InDesign file sits on a location on a server accessible to everyone.…So on this machine, I just created a folder called LocalServer, and that's where…the InDesign file is and it's sitting open right now, and I also have a folder…within that same location called InCopyDocs.…
Now, this location has to be accessible to everyone who is going to write in InCopy.…But here is the trick, the writers don't actually open the InCopy documents,…they're going to open this InDesign file instead.…You also don't have to bother with InCopy assignments at all.…So there's one less layer of complexity.…You just have to be comfortable opening files off your server, and you have to…train your writers to ignore the InCopy files and always open the InDesign files…
