I am asking this question because i am planning to integrate a new workflow at work.
As it is, we go seek text + image + logo for products to layout in old indesign files and it is driving me nuts! (it´s slow and dumb in my opinion)
The plan is to save every product as a snippet so we can find it in finder (were using macs) and drag them into publications we are laying-out.
Having use snippets very little i have to ask, how dependable are they? If i were to create a library of say 2000 snippets
and sync the snippet library (and linked images) to two other computers, would the snippets hold?
I guess what i am wondering is are snippets like mini-indesign file, designed to last every version up, or are they a novel format designed as a quick
fix to something?
Is there anywhere i could read about this?
Thank you for taking the time to read this,
There is no such a thing like a snippet library. If a snippet has a link to another file, like an image, this link must be available everywhere you can use it. All user can see and use the very same snippet if you save them on a place on a server where everyone has access to.
I would also suggest not to use the finder but to use Adobe Bridge to place the snippets. Yo you have a preview and can view some detail information what is inside the snippet.
