    opening the same file in by different users

    Riccie

      As a newbie to InDesign I got a workflow question.

       

       

      Working with a team of 6 designers, we would like all to work in the same InDesign document. We need to create a big salebooks book, therefore it is necessary to open the same file in different copy of indesign?

       

      Currently we are working with CS5 and when I have a indd file open, none of my coworkers are able to open the file except for a copy. I understand that really working together on the same file is something you could do. But can’t be like in MS-Office? The moment you open a indd file which is already opened by a other user, you will get a message and you can then either to open as read only or a notification when the other user is ready editing the file

       

      Is this possible? Or do we need some additional tools?
