Checking Out and Opening Books and Documents from InDesign

You can check out and open InDesign books and documents from ProjectWise Explorer the same as you would other documents.

Use the steps below when you want to check out and open books and documents (stored in ProjectWise) from within your current integrated InDesign session.

  1. In InDesign, select File > Open.
  2. If prompted, log in to your datasource. (See Opening an Integrated Application and Logging In.)
  3. When ProjectWise's Open Document dialog opens, select your InDesign book or document and click Open.
Note: Trying to open a document from the book it has been added to will only open the local copy of that document from your ProjectWise working directory, if the copy is still there. It will not check out the document from ProjectWise.
