    Sounds like a job for InCopy if all that's being changed is text.

    I saw InCopy. It seemed like such an overkill. The only thing I need to be able to do is have multiple people edit text at the same time.

    In InC one person edits one text box in a layout, another person edits another text box in the same layout (page).

    Besides, I believe VersionCue is only for those that own the entire Creative Suite. If you don't have the entire CS then you won't be able to use it.

    Well... I couldn't get it to work.
