    What exactly is this "SmartConnectionIDP"?

    I am assuming it stands for "Smart Connection InDesign Process/Plugin/Program"?

    The example provided here is about InDesign. What about InCopy? Is it also the same "SmartConnectionIDP", or there is a different process called maybe "SmartConnectionICP"?

    Hi Oliver Chou,

    Apologies for this late reply, your post ended up marked as spam again.

    To answer your questions, SmartConnectionIDP is just an internal name for the application and is also used for InCopy. The example incorrectly refers to InDesign, I have corrected this now.

    Thank you for reporting this.

    Hi Maaten,

    Thanks for the exaplanation on the SmartConnectionIDP.

    I have another question. Earlier I was trying to see how I could use the Dossier Panel in InCopy, but I couldn't find it. I thought it was the version of the Smart Connection that doesn't support that. Thus, I simply continued reading along. However, as I moved forward on reading the documentation, I found this article:

    It says:

    • The Dossier panel. (InDesign only) To access this panel, choose Window > Studio > Dossier.

    I wonder if this Studio for InCopy quick start also contains some errors when being copied from the Studio for InDesign quick start?

    The Dossier panel (live version). 

    The live version was not in Studio for InDesign quick start and I wonder if this was also erroneously included in Studio for InCopy quick start instead of for InDesign.
