Hello @AdamW

From what I know and have seen so far,  in Design becomes a book / magazine editing monster when it is teamed with inCopy.

Do you have plans for a mass text editor like that ?  I mean, inCopy allows large team to come together in the writing side while designers focus on the layout side. 

Being able to hire seasonal typing assistants who will work from a dedicated module of publisher and just submit their input to fit with the global layout which can be reviewed by the project manager or any other teal manager would be great and make us feel like using a limited software  (talking about larger teams or serious projects).

It is more a question than a request. Happy if planned and still happy if not planned because I'm sure you will come out with even nice solution that fits.

Blessings !

Maybe they consider this.
I don't think so because to me the linking or embedding external files are more likely to be updated.
So that way anyone could type in google docs,office tools or even simple text editors to have it embedded or linked in any publication with ease.

That's a better question for a separate topic in Discussions and Suggestions for Affinity Publisher Beta on Desktop, in my opinion.

The strength of InCopy is that it allows the editors to see the effect of their edits in the layout. Seems to me the perfect solution for today's online networked freelancers based work culture would be a cloud interface where you can edit your texts and see them on the page without having a separate desktop app. I don't presume we're going to see this this year :) But if enough people buy the software and Affinity gains loads of R&D money…
