Chapter 3. Text > Using Adobe InCopy

Using Adobe InCopy

We don’t ordinarily talk about buying additional programs in this book, but we need to make a quick exception for Adobe InCopy, a word processor that is designed to work especially well with InDesign—sort of a Story Editor on steroids. While it’s not part of the Creative Suite, it’s well worth buying if you work with text heavy publications, especially if you’re collaborating with other people.

InCopy lets you write or edit stories using all the text-formatting available in InDesign, using the same paragraph and character styles, with the knowledge that what you set in InCopy will appear the same in InDesign. InCopy lets you see your stories in story mode (like Story Editor), layout mode (as though you’re seeing the layout in InDesign, but can only edit the story), or galley mode (like story, but you actually see the line breaks).
