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...the way it ought to be.

CrossTalk enables workgroups of copywriters, art directors and others involved, to work on the same document but keeps their access limited to their needs. The copywriter works with the text in Adobe InCopy, a professional writing and editing application, while the art director uses Adobe InDesign with full control of the document and its assets.

CtrlCrossTalk with Adobe InCopy makes editing texts in InDesign documents easy. Just open the InDesign file and 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 in-house production.

Q&A

Q: Will my Art Director have to save in any special format or do some kind of "exporting" for me to be able to open the InDesign document and edit the text?

A: No. Absolutely NOT.

Q: When opening an InDesign document in InCopy with CtrlCrossTalk I get a dialog asking if I would like to convert the document to CrossTalk format, does this affect the document in any way?

A: No. The document is not altered in any way. It remains fully compatible with InDesign, and no special plug-ins are required to edit the document in InDesign.

Q: Is Adobe InCopy difficult to learn, and what about CrossTalk?

A: No, it is actually easier than learning a regular text processing software. CrossTalk has no learning curve.
