    Can I edit InDesign text outside InDesign?


      I'm building a newspaper using InDesign CC. I did the layout and now I need to insert text.


      How I'm doing now:

      -- layout at InDesign, count characters for each story.

      -- Send character count to each writer.

      -- Receive .doc, .rtf, .txt files with text inside.

      -- Copy-paste inside indesign.

      -- All done... oops!

      -- Receive corrections, have to copy and paste all over again.


      At work they use InDesign + InCopy but that doesn't seem an easy thing to configure. Is there a way to edit InDesign texts out of InDesign? Or at least export the frames so my writers can fill the frames instead of working with word ou character counts?
