Content Collaboration Software

Streamline copy and design review cycles to meet publishing deadlines

QuarkXPress CopyDesk is content collaboration software that enables copy and image editing without altering an established layout. Once a page design is set, headlines, subheads, copy blocks, photos and graphics can be designated as new or editable components for writers and editors to add or adjust. Text can be amended; images placed, cropped or rotated; and additional copy written to a precise fit. A single workflow for designers and production managers plus writers, editors and subject-matter experts reduces errors and streamlines the publishing process to ensure deadlines are met. QuarkXPress CopyDesk integrates with both
QuarkXPress and Quark Publishing Platform.
