    Stuck between CS4 & CS5


      I am new to InDesign CS5, just upgraded from CS4.  I am having trouble understanding the "check out/in content".

      When I go to Adobe web site none of the tutorals work, I get the message 500:Internal Server error.


      Can anyone help me out?

          Check in/check out is an InCopy function and is identical from CS4 to CS5.

            Thanks for the info, however I have never run into this when in CS3 or CS4.  Is there any where I can do to get some info on this topic?

            I don't know why I get the 500: internal server error when I try to open any of the tutorals at adobe.com

              Are you using InCopy? If not, you should ignore Check In / Check Out.

              If you are getting an internal server error, you need to tell us what URL you are trying to open.

                Hi John,


                Thanks for your reply!


                We do not use InCopy, only InDesign.  I am not sure how it happened but a large

                amount of files showed up on my desktop and are purple with "IC" on the icon.


                Now I know that this is an incopy file but I am baffled on how it became an incopy file.

                We converted from Pagemaker 7 to InDesign CS3, then CS4, and now CS5.  I've never

                seen this happen before with any of the other versions.  Myself and one other person

                have a newsletter that we both work on.  We save it to our desktop and then also to

                a thumb drive for the other person.


                I work on a Imac and she on a pc. Is there anyway to deactivate incopy? 


                Also, you asked for the URL  I was using.  I was on the adobe web site and

                trying to open the tutorals and I got the same message for every file

                I tried to open. I went to the web site just now to get the URL and everything

                opened fine.  That's one problem taken care of.
