Using Adobe InCopy

Collaborate in demanding editorial workflows

Adobe® InCopy® CC software tightly integrates with Adobe InDesign® CC page layout software. InCopy enhances collaboration between designers, editors, and writers in any size workgroup, enabling them to update the same layout simultaneously without overwriting one another’s work.

Course Description

As with all of our classes, our Adobe InCopy training classes are hands-on and project-driven. In this 1-day class, you will learn how to use the Adobe InDesign/InCopy workflow. For more details on the specific features covered, see the list under Class Topics.

Due to the nature of the InDesign/InCopy workflow (which involves exchanging multiple files between attendees), we prefer to teach this class at your office. Please contact us for a quote for on-site training.

Who Should Attend the Using Adobe InCopy training class?

This class is designed for someone who is comfortable using their computer but is new (or fairly new) to Adobe InCopy. It’s also appropriate for those who have been using Word to write and edit existing documents, but have never used Adobe InDesign or no longer want to use InDesign. While we anticipate that most students will attending training to learn InCopy, we do request that one or two seasoned designers who are competent in InDesign attend the training so that they learn how to prepare InDesign documents for the InDesign/InCopy workflow.
