Include 2 or 3 InCopy licenses in CC or InDesign subscriptions or MAKE IT FREE!
InCopy is a great collaboration tool between two or more people.
But the way Creative Cloud subscription is going, InDesign is a powerful tool to me, but InCopy is totally USELESS. As a designer (not writer), I never need to use InDesign and InCopy at same time. In fact, I never need to use InCopy myself at all. InDesign along with InCopy suppose at least two people working on same job. Most of time the writer, who could actually use InCopy, is my client. It makes no sense to include InDesign and InCopy expecting that the same person will use both.
The great problem is I can’t convince my clients to monthly subscribe to InCopy (even costing U$ 5) to do seasonal jobs. They would not like to pay for a service that I should provide for what they’re paying me. “Dear client, please pay subscription to make things easy for me”, simply doesn't exists.
But I do not want to give my Creative Cloud credentials to my clients, allowing them to install InCopy on their computers to collaborate with my designs (activation on 2 computers is allowed as long as using one at a time).
I have one InCopy license in my subscription which I don’t use myself (don’t need to) or cannot “lend” to my clients. That’s why is useless.
So why don't include 2 or 3 InCopy licenses in Creative Cloud or InDesign subscription, independent to subscriber’s credentials, so one could distribute to clients who don't need/want/like to pay for a subscription themselves? Or, at least, allow subscriber to distribute the already included InCopy. Since is useless to me, let someone else use it to help me and avoid Word or e-mail to send texts to place.
Installation and user permissions could be managed by e-mails allowed by CC’s subscriber.
I'm the creative in the process paying for Creative Cloud subscription, not my clients.
Give a good purpose to include InCopy in CC subscription. Thanks.
