What is an ICMT file?

An ICMT file is a template created by InCopy, a professional writing and editing program. It contains preset page size dimensions, XML tags, swatches, paragraph styles, text area dimensions, and other page layout settings. ICMT files are used to create multiple .ICML documents with the same content, styles, and formatting.
