    Created for collaborative editorial workflows, InCopy delivers a complete solution to managing revisions and amendments. Working in sync with InDesign, InCopy can drastically reduce the number of amendments and corrections on projects designed using InDesign.
    The right InCopy workflow can greatly improve efficiency and collaboration between designers and editorial teams. This course is a well rounded introduction to the many benefits of the program.
    The lesson employs hands-on, real world tasks. Classes can incorporate live projects hosted on a server, allowing students to check work in and out, track changes, copyfit and output correctly.
    Learn how your revisions and proofing process will become streamlined with less margin for error.
    Designed for agencies, corporate teams and publishing, lessons can be delivered on-site or at our Collingwood studio.
