InReview: DocsFlow 3

This article appeared in Issue 133 of InDesign Magazine.

This cloud-based editorial plug-in offers improved interoperability between Google Docs and InDesign

There’s no denying the ubiquity of Microsoft Word and Excel, but it’s also no secret that a great number of people are turning to Google’s free, web-based alternatives—Google Docs and Google Sheets—for collaborative work.

With Em Software’s DocsFlow plug-in, however, you can place your Google Docs and Sheets files into your InDesign document directly without complicated workarounds. Released in November 2019, DocsFlow 3 offers some key improvements to this useful tool, as well as bug fixes for some long-standing issues.
