I use InCopy CC in a remote location on a PC with Windows 10, and the packages I receive are downloaded to the Documents folder under This PC. I would prefer to download them to Documents under OneDrive, for backup and accessibility. Is there a way to change the default location? I found a discussion about this from 2008 - can they really not have fixed this 10 years later?
yes, sorry to say, this has not been changed in all this time.
Have you tried manually moving the InCopy Assignments folder created to OneDrive? (and each unpacked Assignment as it gets added?) Curious if that would work. That is, when choosing Return for InDesign, is InCopy smart enough to package the assignment in OneDrive.
May I make an alternate suggestion? Stop using this workflow and just save the InDesign and InCopy content into a OneDrive or Dropbox folder.
Way more efficient.
Yes, that's what I'm doing btut have to create a folder every time and for every PDF export and InDesign return. It's a nuisance.
I don't think I was clear enough. Put everything into a Dropbox or OneDrive folder and SHARE it among the users. When it's time to edit something just open the InDesign file in InCopy.
As long as everyone has a decent internet connection the files should sync very quickly.
No packages, no assignments, no real hassle at all.
Aha, now I understand. Thank you. I'll discuss this with the production person. I'm not sure it wouldn't just offload the problem to her, as she does InDesign work for several magazines, not just mine.
It will make everyone’s life easier.
Thanks, Bob, this solution worked for us. For others reading this discussion later, note that assignments are still needed, but packages are not. It's overall a cleaner method than emailing back and forth.
You really don’t even need the assignments but they do simplify things just a bit.
