These videos will highlight the benefits of a web based system – for example how content can be e-mailed by a freelancer and instantly turned into a story in the system, ready to mount on the final InDesign page using nothing but a web browser!
E-mailing a story to the system
This video describes how easily you can e-mail content straight to the system - using nothing more than your regular e-mail program or smartphone. This may be the perfect option for your freelancers to hand off material - you can set up several e-mail feeds for your News Editors to choose stories from. You may even set up a separate feed for reader submissions - imagine eye witness photos arriving as a feed, straight from your readers' smartphones.
Creating a new story
This video describes how to create a new story, from an e-mail original, using a Layout Driven Editing (LDE) workflow. It shows how a complete story preview is rendered live, as the story is updated, using InDesign server. It also shows how text can be written and modified using a rich-text editor that supports paragraph and character styles, manual word wrapping etc. right through a web browser.
Using Shared Web Folders on a Mac
This video describes how you connect to the shared web folders of Roxen Editorial Portal from a Mac. The connection utilizes the web-standard WebDAV and HTTPS protocols, enabling you to connect securely from anywhere on the Internet, even without a VPN.
The shared web folders connection is necessary if you want to work with high-resolution images and layout driven editing from your InDesign client, but also enables you to easily upload text, images and InDesign layout files to the Editorial Portal server, also described in this video.
This is a 10-minute recording from Publishing & Media Expo 2013 in London, UK. Martin Jonsson demonstrates how to apply a magazine-style page template, add text and photos to a story, preview the printed version and finally send the same story to web and tablet.
