The digital workflow of the conception of a newspaper or a magazine involves several tasks. While professional solutions like QuarkXpress or Adobe InDesign combined with InCopy only offer the possibility for one person to modify a document at the same time, we have developed a concept in form of a prototype that will help journalists and the editorial staff to work collaboratively together using a touch-based table with a new approach of pagination and text editing through multitouch gestures.
