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.
Precise copyfitting—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 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.
Enhanced 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.
Flexible workspace—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.
Professional typography—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.
Support for long documents—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—Take advantage of support for digital document features in InDesign CS6—insert hyperlinks directly into your InCopy file, and then export your files to Adobe PDF or XML.
Paragraphs that split columns—Quickly turn any text selection into multiple columns within an existing frame. You can keep lines together in paragraphs even in split columns.
Paragraphs that span columns—Cut production time with a simple click that makes single-column text span multiple columns. Quickly create a column-spanning headline or subhead in your existing text frame—no need to ask the designer to create a dedicated frame. Keep lines together in paragraphs that span columns.
Layers panel—Hide or show obscuring layout elements to easily access the text in a multilayered document.
Links panel—Manage placed files in your InCopy documents and see metadata including keywords, headline, and description.
Document-installed fonts—Avoid the inconvenience of missing fonts. When you open an InCopy story, InCopy CS6 finds the required font on your system and automatically installs it into your operating system for the duration that document is open. When you close the document, the font is automatically uninstalled. While InCopy takes the hassle out of installing the required fonts for your design project, the appropriate font licenses are still required on any output systems.
Hunspell dictionaries—Use the dictionary that is best suited for your purpose. Easily add more than 100 open source dictionaries.
Recently used fonts—Access fonts you use frequently. Recently used fonts appear at the top of the font list.
World-Ready Composer—Use the World-Ready Composer, an alternate composition engine, to enable support for complex script languages such as Arabic, Hebrew, and Indian languages.
Middle Eastern language support—Buy and update the Middle Eastern version of InCopy directly from Adobe for easier localization of global documents and enhanced functionality.
Complex calculations—Calculate values in panels and dialog boxes using complex calculations (for example, 12.5p/2x3).
Extension manager—Enable or disable individual extensions or entire sets of extensions to meet the needs of your current workflow.
