The 2 minute video below explains how to install CtrlPrint with links you can click for more information. Click the Table of Contents button in the player to easily navigate the video.
Step 1 - CtrlPrint Transfer Manager
You will need to install the CtrlPrint Transfer Manager to access your documents:
Updating your plugins - pre-existing InDesign users only
If you are a pre-existing InDesign user, and have updated your version of InDesign since last season, you will need to manually update your plugins. If you are a new user to CtrlPrint, our plugins will automatically install when the user downloads a document for editing.
Step 2 - Adobe
You will need to install Adobe's Creative Cloud app before you can install any Adobe programs.
Next, install the correct version of InCopy or InDesign so you can edit your documents. (Please note that you will need a paid subscription before you can download the application.)
If you are editing the text of the document, please download InCopy. If you are editing the layout of the document, please download InDesign.

Configure Adobe's auto-update settings
To ensure that Adobe does not update your version of InCopy/InDesign to the most recent version (i.e. a version that will stop users being able to download their documents for editing), please manually disable the auto-update option in Creative Cloud.
Step 3 - Your agency or project admin
CtrlPrint does not supply or deliver fonts to users so your agency contact is the best person to answer any questions about the specific fonts for your project. Click here for more information about missing fonts in your project.
Creating your user accounts and projects
Your company administrator will create your users and projects on the CtrlPrint web server. They will contact you with further information.
