    Thanks for making this request. In order to understand the use-case more better I have a few questions:

    1. Whats the role of the different people working collaboratively on the same file. Are they always only designers or are other personas also involved.
    2. What is the use-case here, some parts of this request suggest an Editorial collaboration whereas others suggest collaboration amongst different designers. I am trying to separate these 2 requests out.
    3. What are the different kind of files (brochures, books, magazines etc) for which this is required.
    4. Does it need to be a web based service, or having the user be able to collaborate on one shared file using InDesign or InCopy on the Desktop will work? What is the advantage you feel over a web-service over the desktop app?
    5. How do you workaround this need today? What are the most important problems with…

    1. The role of the different people involved are designers, art directors, creative directors, all who have access to the creative cloud. Others would be copywriters who could have access via InCopy. Then there are commenters and approvers which is not the issue here. The issue is to give the designers the ability to change and create at the same time as other designers. One can be assigned to different chapters following the same look and feel.
    2. Answered above.
    3. Mostly large formats such as magazines, books, annual reports, etc.
    4. The obvious advantage is that one creative can be traveling, at the library, working from home and another can be in the office and they can collaborate from any were.
    5. The only work around is to create different sections and then put them together later but this does not allow for live review of consistency rather than making a list of important things to keep in mind. If the art director makes an edit, and the designer needs to incorporate that change, it is live in the same document.
