Parallel collaborative workflow
Experience tight integration between Adobe® InCopy® CS5 and Adobe InDesign® CS5 software for a parallel workflow in which local and remote writers, editors, and designers can simultaneously work on a single document without overwriting each other's contributions.
Flexible page views
Edit in the view most suited to your current task. Galley View displays 100% accurate line breaks. Story View helps enable faster word processing. And Layout View lets you edit text in relation to design.
View copyfit information as you work. Constant visual feedback informs you of space remaining — or how far you've gone over — as well as story depth and line, word, and character counts.
Powerful tools for editorial productivity
Use the new Eyedropper tool for quick text styling, the Links panel for easy management of placed image and text files, and paragraph and character styles for typographical consistency.
Intelligent editorial collaboration
Track text changes across your entire document, including tables. Hide, show, and navigate changes, and accept or reject them en masse or per user. Store annotations in notes tied to specific positions in a story or table cells.
Work productively with easy access to key controls and tools. Use the Adobe Mini Bridge panel to browse and open files without leaving InCopy. And create custom workspaces that can be used for specific editorial tasks.
Apply a wide range of precise typographic adjustments such as leading, letter spacing, and paragraph spacing; use OpenType® fonts and Unicode character encoding; and easily insert glyphs using the Glyphs panel.
Take advantage of collaborative services available through Acrobat.com, part of Adobe CS Live online services*. Import content from Buzzword®, Adobe's online word processing tool, as editable InCopy stories. Work with others in real time by sharing your screen via Adobe ConnectNow.
Long document support
Minimize manual updates and inaccuracies. Quickly produce multiple versions of a document from a single source file with support for conditional text, and create cross-references that update as content changes or moves within an InDesign document.
Print and digital publishing
Develop and deliver content for both print and digital documents. Experience support for digital document features in InDesign CS5, insert hyperlinks directly into your InCopy file, and export files to Adobe PDF or XML.
