Smart Connection Light

Smart Connection Light


Smart Connection Light enables users to start working as a team with InDesign and InCopy supporting workflow by preventing mistakes and managing shared files on any file system accessible from InDesign and InCopy. Smart Connection enables a copy-driven or layout-driven workflow, or a mixture of both.

After creating a story within InDesign, send it to InCopy including (optionally) a preview of the remainder of the page. The contents of the story sent to InCopy is no longer editable within InDesign, only its geometry can be changed.

To let the InCopy user know that changes were made to the geometry of the story or to other items on the page, a so-called design update can be sent to InCopy by just pressing one button. The InCopy user will be notified automatically with a yellow exclamation sign on Smart Connection's design update panel.

One click on the design update button will incorporate the geometry changes and update the preview of the page. The InDesign links panel keeps track of the stories that have been sent to InCopy and will signal when a new version of a story is available.

When a story is finished within InCopy, press the reclaim button on the Smart Connection panel to update the text of the story and to make the story editable again within InDesign. With the refresh button the story can be intermediately updated without getting edit access.

Besides sending single stories, it is also possible to select multiple stories and send them as one InCopy document. There is no need to link these stories. This can be used, for example, to send the body of an article together with its heading to one InCopy document or to send all headings to one InCopy document.

Smart Connection offers the element tag panel to tag each story which eases handling within InCopy, especially when ending multiple stories at once. Within InCopy a panel, lists the tags of all editable stories; selecting one of the tags makes InCopy switch to that story both in layout and galley view.
