Overview

This Adobe authorised InCopy training course explores InCopy's tight integration with InDesign and covers how to style, edit, flow and update linked text. InCopy is a professional word processor which tightly integrates with Adobe InDesign.

InDesign is used to publish printed material, including newspapers and magazines, whereas InCopy is used for general word processing. The software enables editors to write, edit, and design documents.
