Unless we bump into some major issues, Lightning Brain StoryTweaker will come out of the beta phase, and will be officially released on March 1, 2009.
Lightning Brain StoryTweaker is a tool that allows for text edits of a master Adobe® InDesign® file by multiple users, without needing a copy of InDesign for the text edits.
LB StoryTweaker is available for both PCs and Macs, and helps edit the text content of an InDesign document, no matter which platform it was created on.
LB StoryTweaker’s users include
• editors who want a document translated to another language, ie, English to Spanish
• designers who hand off a finished layout to writers that will provide the content
• writers/editors collaborating on a project
LB StoryTweaker is not meant as a replacement Adobe InCopy®. Even though there is some functional overlap between StoryTweaker and InCopy, StoryTweaker has a markedly different approach.
