InDesign & InCopy

Jun 20, 2012 12:16 PM

Well this is an InDesign / InCopy question.  I'm working on a layout simultaneously with 2 editors (who are working in InCopy).  We're all on the same server.  BUT, tomorrow I need to work at home.  I can access the server from home, but I think it will be unsafe to try to save to my work server from home.  So I was going to copy the InDesign file locally and work on it there, then save it save to its original location.  Will this cause problems?  It means the editors will temporarily be accessing an outdated version of the InDesign file, but I think the actual work they do only affects the InCopy icml files.  Is this correct?

 

Hope that question makes sense.

 

Thanks, Phyllis

    That would be a major mistake, IMO. NEVER move an InDesign file that’s the source of an InCopy workflow.

     

     

     

    Nothing good can possibly come of that.

    You can try it the other way if you really need to but I’d make sure EVERYTHING is backed up before doing so.

     

     

     

    Dropbox would be a better solution for this.
