Unfortunately, for all its strengths, collaborating on documents in InDesign isn’t simple. Collectively creating and reviewing your content is a time-consuming and often frustrating process. Feedback is sent via email, written on paper, and given verbally.
Graphic designers and project managers often struggle with collecting and collating feedback from copywriters, designers, marketing managers, sales representatives, and product owners.
Here are some common issues when trying to create content in InDesign:
- Most people don’t have InDesign, and it isn’t cheap to own.
- It takes time to learn as it’s DTP software and not basic word processing.
- Errors are commonplace due to back-and-forth edits using email or printouts.
- Copy-paste mistakes can creep in over many correction rounds.
- Keeping track of changes that have been made and maintaining a version history is a manual task.
