Looking for Advice: Co-Working on a Publisher File with Linked Files on Different Computers


Recommended Posts

Hi there!

I'm looking for advice as I'm about to hand over some files to my assistant to help support me after previously doing a huge project alone. It's a large file – a 320~ page book with text, color, images & different content on every page. Therefore I have my image files linked so that such a large file can be worked on without lag. However, I am wondering what is recommended/what will happen if I share this file with another?

Since the linked files are on my computer, it likely won't translate to her computer when she's working on them... so what is recommended?

Even if I share the files with her that are linked, they'll then be in 2 sources and I'm afraid that will disrupt or confuse the file? The only other thing I can think of is embedding them all but splitting the file up into smaller pieces... but this may cause issues when it comes time to piece it together for print?

Is there anything else I need to keep in mind when co-working and sending files back and forth? 

I plan to send files via google drive but is there a better / recommended way?

Thank you for any advice, support or recommendations.

R
