I got an ICMA and several hundred ML files from a translator who said she wasn't able to check in any of the ML files from within the Assignment panel. I was able to check in two but only by opening them by themselves, but we're unable to do it when the ICMA file is open in InCopy. The option to Check in
or Check In All is grey out. Anyone know why this would happen?
Hi Bob, thanks for your reply. The workflow we've been using is I (designer) generate the InCopy assignment files and icml files via InDesign. These are in English. I send them to one of our many translators. They want the assignment files so they can see the InDesign layout (these are pilates training manuals - copy & images). They work with InCopy and translate. Then they send them back to me, where I synch them back up with my InDesign file. We've been working this way for years without a hitch. However, one of our translators told me she checked everything out but was unable to check anything back in. The option isn't even available when she's working with the ICMA open. If she closes the icma and opens the idml individually, she can check them in.
It turned that she was on an older version of InC (2019). I'm on 2021 (compatiblity issue?).
