InCopy + InDesign: Getting Started
Save time, money, and sanity with an InCopy/InDesign workflow! You've heard about InCopy ... maybe you also know someone who's using it at their company ... and you're wondering if your publication team should be using it too. Sound familiar? Then this eSeminar is for you!
As you'll learn, Adobe InCopy is the editorial partner to Adobe InDesign. At only $249 per editorial seat (Mac or Windows ... it's cross-platform ... and no server required), your writers and editors can craft copy directly in the electronic layout file, using the exact same formatting as the designer, writing to fit and proofing line breaks from the start.
You can still mark up paper proofs, if you prefer (InCopy can print InDesign layouts or export them to PDF), but you don't need to wait to work on your pages while someone else is working on theirs. Multiple InCopy users can work on the same InDesign file concurrently (built-in safeguards prevent more than one person from editing the same story at once), even if the designer is still developing page designs in the layout! And InCopy's Track Changes feature helps keeps everything straight.
Companies who have moved to the InCopy/InDesign workflow commonly report publication turnaround time savings of 50% to 80%, and saved thousands of dollars a month in paper and toner costs alone. This is the beauty of the parallel workflow, and why so many companies consider it their "secret weapon" in a tough economy.
Join InCopy workflow expert Anne-Marie Concepcion, an independent publishing trainer and consultant, in this hour-long Getting Started session to see exactly how it works, what's required, and if it can work at your workplace. You'll learn a ton of useful information, including:
• Best ways to set up the workflow for your particular publication: local with a server, local without a server, a few people off-site, everyone off-site (virtual companies)
• The one essential step you need to do in InDesign to make a layout editable in InCopy
• How a publication goes through the process from start to finish
• Top 10 features that writers and editors will love in InCopy
• How to continue using Word while still taking advantage of InCopy
• Working with outside contributors who don't have InCopy
• When InCopy is a solution for you, and when it probably isn't (and if it isn't, what are some alternatives)
