Seth Gitner, Assistant Professor at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communication at Syracuse University, writes:
In early 2012, a dozen students in the Multimedia Projects course at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University set out to create an interactive storytelling mobile tablet application on Central New York’s notorious winters.
Famous for frigid temperatures and record-crushing snowfalls, Central New York averages 116.9 inches of snow annually. During the previous winter, more than 179 inches of snow accumulated, making “winter” a natural choice for an interactive storytelling project.
The story ends with a call-out to DocsFlow:
The stories for this application were inserted using a content management system that combined Google Documents and InDesign using the InDesign plugin DocsFlow, from Em Software.
Go read the whole thing–it’s a great story.
This patch release resolves several problems with exporting stories and with updating a story’s associated Google Docs document.
This patch release addresses issues with updating Google Docs documents from Adobe InDesign (via Update Original) and improves the quality and general stability of updating.
This release adds support for InDesign CC and includes improvements to product stability and usability.
It’s with a great sigh of relief that, after nearly half a year of substantial internal re-engineering and intense development, we today release DocsFlow 2.0, the much anticipated follow-up to our acclaimed Google Docs connector plug-in. DocsFlow 2.0 offers many customer-driven improvements and new features. The new Pro level gives you full export to Google Docs, and full updating, where you can push-merge your changes from InDesign back into your linked Google Docs document, along with spreadsheet support.
You can purchase both Pro and non-Pro licenses or download the plug-in from the DocsFlow for InDesign sidebar, which appears here, on the product page, on the user guide page, and on any related news items.
As a thank-you to our early adopters, all of the licenses we’ve issued prior to this release have been Pro licenses. By updating to this release, those of you who have already purchased a license will instantly gain all of this version’s Pro capabilities (mainly story export and two-way updating).
Anne-Marie Concepción has published a new online video course Using Word and InDesign Together on lynda.com that includes brief overviews of both WordsFlow and DocsFlow.
The course itself looks great, as you’d expect from Anne-Marie, and the two short overviews of our products are spot on. She mentions DocsFlow 2.0, which includes two-way linking to Google Docs, and which we’re just about to release in the next few days.

We’re happy to announce the immediate availability of DocsFlow 2.0 beta 1, which adds long-awaited support for exporting InDesign stories to Google Docs. In addition, Google Docs documents can now be updated from their linked InDesign stories. We’ve also made improvements to the Place from Google Docs dialog and redesigned DocsFlow’s internals to better support some planned features in upcoming releases.
This release of DocsFlow introduces major improvements to table handling and improves the overall quality of the merge process.
We’re happy to announce DocsFlow 1.5, which adds support for Google Drive files, improves the drag’n'drop workflow, converts page breaks to InDesign frame breaks, and enhances the quality of story updating.
