Have you tried to use Adobe InCopy and found the assignments and check in/check out process difficult, challenging and confusing? CtrlCrossTalk for Adobe InCopy offers a smarter and simpler approach. The CtrlCrossTalk plugin for Adobe InCopy enables you to use InCopy the way many users expect it to work: open the InDesign file, convert to CrossTalk, edit any text, save and close ... Easy, the way it ought to be.
Art directors and copywriters can work on the same document, the copywriter works in Adobe InCopy, a specialized text editor, while the art director works in Adobe InDesign with full control over the document and its layout.
CtrlCrossTalk with Adobe InCopy makes editing texts in InDesign documents easy. Just open the InDesign file, edit the text and then save your work. Just as you would when using other applications such as Microsoft Word. No check-in and check-out. This makes CrossTalk a tool that increases your productivity when working in small workgroups such as advertising agencies or inhouse production.
With CtrlCrossTalkID, InDesign users can manage stories in a document by locking them to prevent an InCopy user from further modifying approved texts, while still allowing them access to other texts in the same file. CtrlCrossTalkID even allows the InDesign user to completely disable the CrossTalk workflow so that an InCopy user can no longer edit a document when it has reached its final stage.
