Box offers Cloud storage and file sharing services that enable individuals and businesses to securely share and distribute content. Due to enhanced security and ease of use, some say that it is evolving into a defacto DAM solution for many users, including creatives and art agencies.
Given that, here’s the challenge: Adobe InDesign does not readily link InDesign documents to assets stored in the Cloud: it only supports digital assets on the local file system or network. InDesign is too locally focused to see your assets on Box, or anywhere else in the Cloud.
Silicon Connector fixes that, by linking InDesign to Box simply and automatically. Beyond URL-based links to Box assets from InDesign, Connector enables access to Box from directly within Photoshop and Illustrator.
1: Use the "Open" feature in the web UI to open locally and save to the cloud.
Before Silicon Connector, Adobe InDesign users had to link assets to an InDesign document locally, but when sharing outside of the network, they had to package the entire project as well as all the assets, creating redundant copies. This resulted in mass duplication of assets, long file transfers and versioning issues, challenges that were only compounded when sharing projects with multiple remote resources such as consultants, design houses or agencies.
With Connector, these barriers to collaboration are removed: everyone on your InDesign team shares assets via Box. Update an asset in Box, and the updated content automatically references the latest versions.
After you've installed Silicon Connector for Box, when you load Adobe InDesign, you are prompted to log into your Box account through the in-app window. Once you've authenticated, you can drag assets from the Box navigator directly into your InDesign document. Simply by dragging a graphic or other asset from Box into your InDesign document, a direct and durable HTTP link is instantly created, a link that works for any user of your InDesign file with Connector, in any location around the world.
Silicon Connector for Box includes basic support of navigating, searching, and working with individual Photoshop and Illustrator assets.
