Parallel collaborative workflow
Experience tight integration between Adobe® InCopy® CS4 and InDesign® CS4 software for a parallel workflow in which local and remote writers, editors, and designers can simultaneously work on a single InDesign 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 enables faster word processing, and Layout View lets you edit text in relation to the 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
Work more efficiently with the redesigned Links panel for easy management of all placed files; paragraph and character styles, which ensure typographical consistency; the ability to easily resolve style conflicts in imported Microsoft Word documents; and more.
Intelligent editorial collaboration
Easily track text changes across your entire InCopy CS4 document, including tables. Hide, show, navigate, and accept or reject changes, and store annotations in notes tied to specific positions in a story or table cells.
Take advantage of a flexible workspace that lets you invoke multiple views of different documents in a single uncluttered window, tab through open documents to find the one you need, and quickly switch between task-based workspaces.
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.
Access to Adobe ConnectNow
Share your screen and collaborate in real time with team members — regardless of their locations — using Adobe ConnectNow. Work across platforms and invite up to two online guests at a time by accessing the web-based Adobe ConnectNow service through InCopy.
Quickly produce multiple versions of a document from a single source file thanks to new support for conditional text, and create cross-references that update as content changes or moves within an InDesign document.
Easily develop and deliver content for both print and digital documents. A new panel enables easy hyperlink creation, and you can export files to Adobe PDF for print or web viewing.
