Type on a Path in InCopy

Does anyone have experience with Type on a Path in InCopy? I am able to add the paths to the InCopy assignment, they are visible in InCopy but then aren't able to be edited.


Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Ben

That's odd. I've never had a problem editing in InCopy stories that just happen to be incorporated into Type on a Path objects.

Can you check them out?

They are there and I can check them out in the Story view but they are empty. If I put text in I don't see it appear anywhere in the layout and the text that was originally there in the layout is still there.

Update: I have found that if I use "Add All Stories to Assignment" it works, I get the Type on Path objects and are able to edit them. It also seems to add an empty element along with the objects though.

So my challenge now is knowing how to add the story that's on the Type on Path to the assignment.

It could be just a display issue. Try editing the text in that story, save and checkin the story, close InCopy, and open the document in InDesign. Did the text change?
