Adobe has recently released a new tool that could be a game changer for the way that technical writing teams work on InDesign® projects. It’s called Adobe InCopy. We’ve just started using it here at ProEdit, and so far we like what we are seeing.
Here’s how it works. One user has the InDesign document open; then, multiple users can open the same document with InCopy to make edits. Each user’s changes are marked in a separate color, so each user can see who made which changes. The InDesign user is then able to accept or reject those changes within the original document.
InCopy is available as part of Adobe Creative Cloud™.
