enables writers, editors, and designers to simultaneously work on a single document without
overwriting each other’s contributions.

accurate line breaks. Story View helps enable faster word processing. And Layout View lets you edit

Mini Bridge panel to browse and open files without leaving InCopy. And create custom workspaces

letter spacing, and paragraph spacing; use OpenType® fonts and Unicode character encoding; and
easily insert glyphs using the Glyphs panel.

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.

Links panel—Manage placed files in your InCopy documents and see metadata including
keywords, headline, and description.
Support for Adobe Buzzword®—Easily place copy written in Adobe Buzzword (a feature of
Acrobat.com*†) into editable InCopy text frames.
Document-installed fonts—Avoid the inconvenience of missing fonts. When you open an
InCopy story, InCopy CS5.5 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.
