How do I send a story from InDesign?

Sending a story to your copy editors is as simple as ABC. 

If your InDesign document has more than one story, you have the option to either send an individual story or send all of the stories. These options give you more control on which ones are being sent to your copy editors.

1. Sending individual stories


1.1. Open your InDesign document, then the GoProof extension and select the Stories tab.
1.2. Choose the Client and the Project for your stories.
1.3. Click on the Send icon beside your chosen story to send it.


1.4. Go through the sending process using our Send Stories Wizard and click Finish.

2. Sending all stories


2.1. Open your InDesign document, then the GoProof extension and select the Stories tab.
2.2. Choose the Client and the Project for your stories.
2.3. Click on the Send stories button located at the bottom of the extension.


2.4. Go through the sending process using our Send Stories Wizard and click Finish.

Your copy editors will receive email notifications on InCopy stories that are available for them to edit.

Once your stories are sent to the copy editors, new options will appear beside your stories in the extension.

On the other hand, the text frames will be locked for editing and will display a no symbol over the green T icon
