Adobe InCopy is a word processing program that integrates with Adobe InDesign. It is a fully functional word processor but is rarely used without InDesign. The program is available as part of Adobe Creative Cloud.

InCopy allows collaboration between content writers and designers who use InDesign. The designer can work on the page layout while the writer simultaneously creates or edits the content. InCopy also includes management tools to control what part of the project each team member is working on.

Adobe InCopy has many features that add convenience to your workflow. With the advanced font search and filter tool you can find the exact font you are looking for and with Sync Fonts you can add new fonts from the Adobe Typekit library. You can place images in tables, manage colors with color swatch folders, and add paragraph borders. Also, if you want to expand the functionality of InCopy, you can search Adobe Exchange for extensions, plugins, and templates from a convenient panel in the program.

InCopy is a solid word processing program that is designed to simplify collaboration with InDesign. If you're working with a team or on your own on an InDesign project, InCopy is a great asset and is worth trying. However, if you just need a basic word processor, there are more suitable options available.
