The Creative Cloud syncs up to 1 GB of overflow from any device. After that, the desktop app stops syncing new files
and notifies that you are over quota. A red exclamation point marks any files that are unable to upload. You can still
move, rename, or delete files. To continue to sync files, permanently delete other files to free up space.
Note: A small portion of storage is used for administrative purposes. Therefore, the actual storage space is slightly less than
allocated. It varies from 100 KB to 500 KB based on number of user files.

Creative Cloud Extract
Photoshop compositions are a widely used method for sharing design specifications to web developers, who then need
to convert the design intent into HTML and CSS. In a typical workflow, designers create Photoshop comps for a web
or mobile design. Production designers then prepare the PSD file for developers, where they slice assets and create
redline specs. Web developers are tasked with taking those design elements and assets and turn them into code.
Extract reinvents this workflow, enabling web designers to export optimized assets in record time in Photoshop CC,
and share their PSDs with developers via Creative Cloud Assets so they can unlock key design info and download
assets within their browsers. Developers can then access and apply this information as they code in Dreamweaver
CC.
Last updated 6/13/2015
Use Creative Cloud Extract to make the Photoshop design to code workflow easier. Extract simplifies the process
for both web designers and web developers, and greatly improves the efficiency in transforming a web design to
workable code.

Creative Cloud
Last updated 6/13/2015
Extract is powered by Creative Cloud, and is available to you at various places in the PSD design to code workflow.
Using Extract gives you the freedom to choose wherever you're the most comfortable with the tools and technologies,
and enables you to transform your design to reality.
Designers can work in the familiar environment of Photoshop CC to define and extract image assets from layers or
layer groups.
Web developers can access the PSD file on Creative Cloud Assets and use Extract to export image assets,
measurements, and CSS styles. These assets and CSS styles can then be used to turn design comps into code.
Web designers and developers can use Extract from within Dreamweaver, a complete self-contained solution that
offers contextual code hinting, assets extraction, and more directly within the coding environment.
Extract assets in Photoshop
Designers who create Photoshop comps can quickly define and package image assets from individual layers or
layer groups, using a simple, visual interface built on top of Adobe Generator. This dramatically speeds up
production time so designers can spend more time designing.
Extract in Dreamweaver
Web designers and developers can now view PSDs in Dreamweaver and use contextual code hinting to easily
define fonts, colors, and gradients in their CSS. They can also drag and drop optimized images into the Live View
surface, copy text, and more.

You can further simplify your design workflow by using other Creative Cloud services to keep your assets such as files,
fonts, and colors in sync so that everyone has access to the latest designs.
Sync and store PSD files and extracted images in Creative Cloud Assets, so that you have access to the updated files on
all your devices.
Use Creative Cloud Assets to share folders, so that the entire team is working on the same set of files. You can also
review and add comments to files. Creative Cloud Assets also provides basic version control.
Creative Cloud provides access to fonts from Typekit, and members can download fonts from Typekit as required by
the design.
Extract in Creative Cloud Assets
Web designers can share PSDs directly from Creative Cloud Assets in the browser, so that developers can quickly
extract design information — colors, gradients, fonts, text, CSS, and more — that helps them turn the comp into
code. Plus, they can export optimized PNG, SVG, and JPG images for the web.
Extract for Brackets (Preview)
Extract integration in Brackets brings the power of Extract to a lightweight, modern code editor. Using Extract for
Brackets (Preview), you can pull out design information from a PSD as clean, minimal CSS via contextual code
hints. You can also extract layers as images, use information from the PSD to define preprocessor variables, and
easily get dimensions/distances between objects.

Overview: Work with Creative Cloud Libraries
Add to library
Creative Cloud Libraries provide a mechanism to capture design assets from a variety of apps, and is not limited to
desktop applications. You can capture inspiration, whenever it strikes, using the family of Creative Cloud mobile apps
or even download assets from the Creative Cloud Market.
Mobile
You can add assets to your library using a growing family of Adobe mobile apps. Consult to understand how.
Desktop
Add assets to Creative Cloud Libraries on your computer using a Creative Cloud desktop application. Drag assets to
the Libraries panel in the desktop application. You can also view and browse through the libraries on the Creative Cloud
Assets page.
See the for more information on using Libraries with it.
Creative Cloud Market
Discover and add assets to Libraries from Creative Cloud Market. Use the Creative Cloud desktop app to browse and
add assets from . You can also add assets to a library using Creative mobile apps.
Reuse and create
Desktop
In a desktop application supporting Libraries, open the Libraries panel (Windows > Libraries) and drag objects to the
canvas.
Mobile apps
Select an object from the Library to place it in your project using mobile apps.
Browser

Adobe Stock and Creative Cloud Libraries
Adobe Stock is deeply integrated with Creative Cloud Libraries. You can add a watermarked preview of a stock image
to any of your libraries directly using the Adobe Stock website. Then, in Creative Cloud apps that support Libraries—
Photoshop, lllustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro, and After Effects—you can drag the watermarked stock image from the
Libraries panel to your creative project. When you're satisfied that the stock image is appropriate for your project, you
can choose to license the stock image directly from within the Libraries panel.
Creative Cloud apps that support library-linked smart objects—Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign—take this
integration a notch deeper. When you license the stock image, all linked instances of the stock image in your open
documents are automatically updated to the licensed, high-resolution stock image without the watermark.
For more information, see Using Adobe Stock .
FAQ
How many items can I add to a library?
A library can contain up to 1000 assets.
Is there a limit to the number of libraries I can create?
No, there are no limits to the number of Libraries you can create.
Are all assets stored in Libraries usable by all supported apps?
While you're working in an app, you can view and use Libraries content relevant to that particular. For example, while
you can add layer styles to a library, those styles are only relevant to Photoshop.
What type of color information is supported?
Libraries support color data for a single swatch or color themes. Libraries only support process colors. Spot colors are
not supported and are added as process colors to Libraries.
Can I reuse any asset stored in Libraries across Creative Cloud desktop applications?
Most assets are reusable between the desktop applications. Photoshop layer styles are a notable exception; they are
currently reusable only in Photoshop.
41
Creative Cloud
Last updated 6/13/2015
If you use an InDesign text style asset in Illustrator or Photoshop, those applications will attempt to map the properties
of the asset with the properties for text styles available in the host application. Any properties not found in the host
application are ignored.
Where are the assets stored?
Your assets are stored locally on your device and synchronized with Creative Cloud.
Can I share a library with others?
Yes. S e e .
Some mobile apps integrated with Creative Cloud Libraries—Brush, Color, and Shape—do not yet support
collaboration on libraries. Also, any libraries shared with you are not available when you're working within these mobile
apps. However, if you shared a library with other users, that library is available to you in Creative Cloud desktop
applications as well as in mobile apps.
Do I need a Creative Cloud membership?
You'll need either a free or a paid Creative Cloud membership to use Creative Cloud Libraries.
Where can I learn more about Creative Cloud Libraries?

Share files and folders
Creative Cloud Assets lets you share public links to files and folders to gather quick feedback and work more efficiently
with others. When you share a link with someone, they can view a high fidelity preview of the assets directly in the web
browser, without having to install Creative Cloud apps or sign in to the website. In addition to viewing the assets, users
can write comments or download a copy of the files (if you permit them).
Public sharing of files and folders ensures that you retain complete control over your content. Recipients get read-only
access to your assets, which means they cannot upload, update, or delete them. The shared assets are accessed using a
unique Adobe.ly short URL that you send via email or copy/paste to send. At any time, you can turn the URL off to
revoke access.

Chapter 3: Workspace
Workspace basics
Workspace overview
You create and manipulate your documents and files using various elements, such as panels, bars, and windows. Any
arrangement of these elements is called a workspace. The workspaces of the different applications in Adobe® Creative
Suite® 5 share the same appearance so that you can move between the applications easily. You can also adapt each
application to the way you work by selecting from several preset workspaces or by creating one of your own.
Although the default workspace layout varies in different products, you manipulate the elements much the same way
in all of them.
The Application bar across the top contains a workspace switcher, menus (Windows only), and other application
controls. On the Mac for certain products, you can show or hide it using the Window menu.
The Tools panel contains tools for creating and editing images, artwork, page elements, and so on. Related tools are
grouped.
The Control panel displays options for the currently selected tool. In Illustrator, the Control panel displays options
for the currently selected object. (In Adobe Photoshop® this is known as the Options bar. In Adobe Flash®, Adobe
Dreamweaver®, and Adobe Fireworks® this is known as the Property Inspector and includes properties of the
currently selected element.)
The Document window displays the file youre working on. Document windows can be tabbed and, in certain cases,
grouped and docked.
Panels help you monitor and modify your work. Examples include the Timeline in Flash, the Brush panel in
Illustrator, the Layers panel in Adobe Photoshop®, and the CSS Styles panel in Dreamweaver. Panels can be grouped,
stacked, or docked.
The Application frame groups all the workspace elements in a single, integrated window that lets you treat the
application as a single unit. When you move or resize the Application frame or any of its elements, all the elements
within it respond to each other so none overlap. Panels don’t disappear when you switch applications or when you
accidentally click out of the application. If you work with two or more applications, you can position each
application side by side on the screen or on multiple monitors.
If you are using a Mac and prefer the traditional, free-form user interface, you can turn off the Application frame.
In Adobe Illustrator®, for example, select Window > Application Frame to toggle it on or off. (In Flash, the
Application frame is on permanently for Mac, and Dreamweaver for Mac does not use an Application frame.)

You can display the tools in the Tools panel in a single column, or side by side in two columns. (This feature is not
available in the Tools panel in Fireworks and Flash.)
In InDesign and InCopy, you also can switch from single-column to double-column (or single-row) display by setting
an option in Interface preferences.
Click the double arrow at the top of the Tools panel.
Manage windows and panels
You can create a custom workspace by moving and manipulating Document windows and panels. You can also save
workspaces and switch among them. For Fireworks, renaming custom workspaces can lead to unexpected behavior.
Note: The following examples use Photoshop for demonstration purposes. The workspace behaves the same in all the
products.
Rearrange, dock, or float document windows
When you open more than one file, the Document windows are tabbed.
To rearrange the order of tabbed Document windows, drag a window’s tab to a new location in the group.
To undock (float or untab) a Document window from a group of windows, drag the window’s tab out of the group.
Note: In Photoshop you can also choose Window > Arrange > Float in Window to float a single Document window, or
Window > Arrange > Float All In Windows to float all of the Document windows at once. See tech note kb405298 for more
information.
Note: Dreamweaver does not support docking and undocking Document windows. Use the Document window’s Minimize
button to create floating windows (Windows), or choose Window > Tile Vertically to create side-by-side Document
windows. Search “Tile Vertically” in Dreamweaver Help for more information on this topic. The workflow is slightly
different for Macintosh users.
To dock a Document window to a separate group of Document windows, drag the window into the group.
To create groups of stacked or tiled documents, drag the window to one of the drop zones along the top, bottom, or
sides of another window. You can also select a layout for the group by using the Layout button on the Application bar.
Note: Some products do not support this functionality. However, your product may have Cascade and Tile commands in
the Window menu to help you lay out your documents.
To switch to another document in a tabbed group when dragging a selection, drag the selection over the documents
tab for a moment.
Note: Some products do not support this functionality.
Dock and undock panels
A dock is a collection of panels or panel groups displayed together, generally in a vertical orientation. You dock and
undock panels by moving them into and out of a dock.
To dock a panel, drag it by its tab into the dock, at the top, bottom, or in between other panels.
To dock a panel group, drag it by its title bar (the solid empty bar above the tabs) into the dock.

Workspace
Last updated 6/13/2015
To remove a panel or panel group, drag it out of the dock by its tab or title bar. You can drag it into another dock or
make it free-floating.
You can prevent panels from filling all the space in a dock. Drag the bottom edge of the dock up so it no longer meets
the edge of the workspace.
Move panels
As you move panels, you see blue highlighted drop zones, areas where you can move the panel. For example, you can
move a panel up or down in a dock by dragging it to the narrow blue drop zone above or below another panel. If you
drag to an area that is not a drop zone, the panel floats freely in the workspace.
Note: The position of the mouse (rather than the position of the panel), activates the drop zone, so if you can’t see the drop
zone, try dragging the mouse to the place where the drop zone should be.
To move a panel, drag it by its tab.
To move a panel group, drag the title bar.

Press Ctrl (Windows) or Command (Mac OS) while moving a panel to prevent it from docking. Press Esc while moving
the panel to cancel the operation.
Add and remove panels
If you remove all panels from a dock, the dock disappears. You can create a dock by moving panels to the right edge of
the workspace until a drop zone appears.
To remove a panel, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac) its tab and then select Close, or deselect it from
the Window menu.
To add a panel, select it from the Window menu and dock it wherever you want.
Manipulate panel groups
To move a panel into a group, drag the panels tab to the highlighted drop zone in the group.
To rearrange panels in a group, drag a panels tab to a new location in the group.
To remove a panel from a group so that it floats freely, drag the panel by its tab outside the group.
To move a group, drag the title bar (the area above the tabs).
Stack floating panels
When you drag a panel out of its dock but not into a drop zone, the panel floats freely. The floating panel allows you to
position it anywhere in the workspace. You can stack floating panels or panel groups so that they move as a unit when
you drag the topmost title bar.
To stack floating panels, drag a panel by its tab to the drop zone at the bottom of another panel.
To change the stacking order, drag a panel up or down by its tab.
Note: Be sure to release the tab over the narrow drop zone between panels, rather than the broad drop zone in a title bar.
To remove a panel or panel group from the stack, so that it floats by itself, drag it out by its tab or title bar.
Resize panels
To minimize or maximize a panel, panel group, or stack of panels, double-click a tab. You can also double-click the
tab area (the empty space next to the tabs).
To resize a panel, drag any side of the panel. Some panels, such as the Color panel in Photoshop, cannot be resized
by dragging.
Collapse and expand panel icons
You can collapse panels to icons to reduce clutter on the workspace. In some cases, panels are collapsed to icons in the
default workspace.

Last updated 6/13/2015
To collapse or expand all panel icons in a column, click the double arrow at the top of the dock.
To expand a single panel icon, click it.
To resize panel icons so that you see only the icons (and not the labels), adjust the width of the dock until the text
disappears. To display the icon text again, make the dock wider.
To collapse an expanded panel back to its icon, click its tab, its icon, or the double arrow in the panels title bar.
In some products, if you select Auto-Collapse Icon Panels from the Interface or User Interface Options preferences, an
expanded panel icon collapses automatically when you click away from it.
To add a floating panel or panel group to an icon dock, drag it in by its tab or title bar. (Panels are automatically
collapsed to icons when added to an icon dock.)
To move a panel icon (or panel icon group), drag the icon. You can drag panel icons up and down in the dock, into
other docks (where they appear in the panel style of that dock), or outside the dock (where they appear as floating
icons).
Save and switch workspaces
By saving the current size and position of panels as a named workspace, you can restore that workspace even if you
move or close a panel. The names of saved workspaces appear in the workspace switcher in the Application bar.

Galley, Story, and Layout view overview
InCopy offers three views of a story: Galley, Story, and Layout. These terms correspond to the terms used in traditional
publishing.
Galley view Displays text with line breaks established in the corresponding Adobe InDesign® document. If text doesn’t
fit into the assigned layout space, an overset indicator marks the point at which the InCopy text exceeds the space.
Although you can use InCopy to apply formatting, such as paragraph indents and font size, these formats don’t appear
in Galley view.
Story view Displays text in a continuous stream, wrapping the text at the document window. Story view doesn’t show
accurate line endings, so you can concentrate on content. However, if text doesn’t fit into the assigned layout space, an
overset indicator marks the point at which the InCopy text exceeds the space. In Story view, the information area
displays only paragraph styles. Line numbers aren’t visible in Story view.
Story view opens by default when you create a new InCopy story.
To change the default view for new documents, close all documents and select the view you want as the default from
the View menu.

About Galley view
Galley view provides an environment for efficient text processing; text is easy to read and annotate. You can also use
Galley view to perform copyfitting and other production-related tasks.
When you open an InDesign document in InCopy, working in Galley view is analogous to working with galley proofs
in traditional typesetting. Within the viewing area, the text wraps exactly as it will in the final InDesign layout, and all
text is displayed in one column, regardless of how many columns exist in the layout. Page breaks, frame breaks, and
column breaks are shown by a line with the words “Page break, “Frame break, or “Column break” in the center of the
line.
Note: When multiple breaks are represented by a single boundary, such as a page break coinciding with a frame break, the
break with the highest priority is displayed. Page breaks have the highest priority, and column breaks have the lowest.
Galley view includes the Copyfit break feature, which indicates the point at which the InCopy text exceeds the layout
space assigned for it in InDesign.
By default, Galley view displays text at 12 points. You can change the font, size, or spacing to make text easier to read
or edit. You can also change the background and font colors.
Note: The font display size applies to all stories, rather than individual characters, words, or paragraphs.
The Galley & Story Appearance toolbar at the bottom of the workspace controls several settings that you might want
to change frequently when working on a document. These settings include:
Display font type and size
Display leading (single space, 150% space, double space, or triple space)
Show/hide line number and styles columns
Customize Galley & Story Appearance controls
Customize Galley and Story views
You can customize Galley and Story views in a variety of ways.
Change the Galley view display settings
Select an option from the Galley & Story Appearance toolbar. (If the toolbar is hidden, choose Window > Galley &
Story Appearance. The toolbar appears at the bottom of the application window by default.)
Note: Its important to understand the difference between changing the font display size and applying text formatting.
Both can be done in Galley view. Changing the font display size doesn’t affect the way text looks in a publication,
whereas applying text formatting does change the text appearance in Layout view and in the published document.
Set Galley view display preferences
1Choose Edit > Preferences > Galley & Story Display (Windows) or InCopy > Preferences > Galley & Story Display
(Mac OS).
2In the Text Display Options section, specify the following:
Text Color Controls text color in the viewing area. Black is the default text color.
Background Controls the background color of the viewing area. White is the default background color.
Theme Assigns preset text and background colors.

Override Preview Font Enables you to display one additional font using the correct typeface in the Galley and Story
view. InCopy automatically displays the Symbol, Zapf Dingbats, Webdings, and Wingdings® fonts accurately,
overriding the display font you’ve chosen.
Enable Anti-aliasing Smooths the jagged edges of type and bitmap images by softening the color transition between
edge pixels and background pixels. Because only the edge pixels change, no detail is lost. You can choose the level of
anti-aliasing to apply. The Default option uses shades of gray to smooth text. The LCD Optimized option uses
colors, rather than shades of gray, and works best on light-colored backgrounds with black text. The Soft option uses
shades of gray, but produces a lighter, fuzzier appearance.
Cursor Options Controls the cursor display. Choose from four different cursors. Select or deselect Blink.
Note: Any settings made in the Galley & Story Display section apply to both the Galley and Story views.
Show or hide the information column
The information column appears on the left side of the document window in Galley and Story views. This column
contains read-only information about paragraph styles, line numbers, and the vertical depth of text; you cannot type in
this area.
Do one of the following:
To change the view in the current document only, choose View > Show Info Column or View > Hide Info
Column.
To change the default view in the application, close all documents, and choose View > Show Info Column or View
> Hide Info Column.
Note: Paragraph styles make it much easier to maintain consistency in your publications. Consult any workflow
documentation your team has adopted concerning in-house guidelines for your project.
Set Story view preferences
Use the Galley & Story Display section of the Preferences dialog box to customize the display of the Story view.
1Choose Edit > Preferences > Galley & Story Display (Windows) or InCopy > Preferences > Galley & Story Display
(Mac OS).
2Specify the options you want.
3Click OK.
Show or hide paragraph break marks
You can show or hide paragraph break marks in Galley and Story view. An arrow symbol indicates the start of a new
paragraph.
Choose View > Show Paragraph Break Marks or View > Hide Paragraph Break Marks.
Use the vertical depth ruler
When you type text, it’s sometimes useful to know the physical depth of a story as it will appear in Layout view, in
addition to the number of lines. The vertical depth ruler draws a ruler along the left edge of the Galley and Story views.
Each tick mark in the ruler aligns to the bottom of a line of text. A value is displayed every five tick marks to show the
total vertical depth of the text to that point. The depth is updated dynamically when layout composition for the portion
of the document is complete.
The depth measurement uses the vertical units setting in Units & Increments preferences.

Layout view overview
In Layout view, you see text and other elements exactly as they are formatted and positioned in an InDesign document.
Stories are laid out in frames, just as they appear in InDesign.
If you work with a linked story—a managed story within an open InDesign document or assignment file—you cannot
modify the story layout with InCopy. You can work only with the text and text attributes.
If you work with a stand-alone InCopy documentan individual InCopy document that isn’t within an open InDesign
document or assignment file—you can work with the text and text attributes, and you can change the page size using
the Document Setup command.
Layout view offers more tools and View-menu commands than the other views. You can use the Hand tool, the Zoom
tool, and the Zoom commands to view a spread at various magnifications. You can also use various layout aids, such as
rulers, document grids, and baseline grids.
Note: These viewing options don’t affect formatting. For example, zooming in to enlarge your view of the page doesn’t
change the way the story appears in InDesign or when printed.
About frames
In the Layout view of a document in progress, you see one or more boxes on the page. These nonprinting boxes might
contain text, graphics, or nothing. The boxes represent frames—spaces in the layout reserved for specific elements. Each
frame is defined to contain either text or a graphic. Non-managed stories in an InDesign document or in an assignment
file are dimmed so that they can be identified easily.
Text frames Control which stories appear where, and how much page area they cover. For linked stories, frames are
defined by the InDesign user. If multiple frames are set aside for a story, the frame configuration determines how the
story text flows through the layout.
Graphics frames Can function as borders and background, and can crop or mask graphics. You can work with graphics
inside frames in InCopy, and you can see the graphics frames from InDesign layouts when you work with linked
documents. You can also work with the frames of inline graphics (embedded in text), but you cannot work with other
graphics frames. (See Create an inline graphic.)
Empty frames Are placeholders. You can distinguish empty text frames from empty graphics frames by their
appearance. An empty box represents an empty text frame; a box with an X across it indicates an empty graphics frame.
You can add text to an empty text frame only if the frame is associated with the story exported to InCopy from
InDesign. You can also import or paste graphics into an empty graphics frame in InCopy.

Zoom in or out
In Layout view, you can magnify or reduce the view of a page. The application bar displays the zoom percentage.
Do any of the following:
To magnify a specific area, select the Zoom tool and click the area you want to magnify. Each click magnifies
the view to the next preset percentage, centering the display around the point you click. At maximum
magnification, the center of the Zoom tool appears blank. To zoom out, hold down Alt (Windows) or Option
(Mac OS) to activate the Zoom Out tool , and click the area you want to reduce. Each click reduces the view
to the previous preset percentage.

Recovery and undo
Recover documents
InCopy guards your data against unexpected power or system failures using an automatic recovery feature.
Automatically recovered data exists in a temporary file that is separate from the original document file on disk. Under
normal circumstances you dont need to think about automatically recovered data, because any document updates
stored in the automatic recovery file are automatically added to the original document file when you choose the Save
or Save As command or exit from InCopy normally. Automatically recovered data is important only if you’re unable to
save successfully before an unexpected power or system failure.
Even though these features exist, you should save your files often and create backup files in case of unexpected power
or system failures.
Find recovered documents
1Restart your computer.
2Start InCopy .
If automatically recovered data exists, InCopy automatically displays the recovered document. The word
[Recovered] appears after the filename in the title bar of the document window to indicate that the document
contains unsaved changes that were automatically recovered.
Note: If InCopy fails after attempting to open a document using automatically recovered changes, the automatically
recovered data may be corrupted.
3Do one of the following:
For Adobe InCopy® files linked to an InDesign publication, choose File > Save.
For stand-alone InCopy files, choose File >Save As, specify a location and a new filename, and click Save. The
Save As command creates a new file that includes the automatically recovered data.
To discard any automatically recovered changes and use the last saved version of the file, choose File > Revert
Content.

Workspace
Last updated 6/13/2015
4Do one of the following:
To save the recovered data, choose File >Save As, specify a location and a new filename, and click Save. The Save
As command keeps the recovered version that includes the automatically recovered data; the word [Recovered]
disappears from the title bar.
To discard automatically recovered changes and use the most recent version of the document that was explicitly
saved to disk before the failure occurred, close the file without saving it and open the file on disk, or choose File
> Revert.
Change the location of recovered documents
1Choose Edit > Preferences > File Handling (Windows) or InCopy > Preferences > File Handling (Mac OS).
2Under Document Recovery Data, click Browse (Windows) or Choose (Mac OS).
3Specify the new location for the recovered document, click Select (Windows) or Choose (Mac OS), and then click
OK.
Undo mistakes
If necessary, you can cancel a lengthy operation before its completed, undo recent changes, or revert to a previously
saved version. You can undo or redo up to several hundred of the most recent actions (the amount is limited by the
amount of RAM available and the kinds of actions you performed). The series of actions is discarded when you choose
the Save As command, close a document, or when you exit from the program.
Do one of the following:
To undo the most recent change, choose Edit > Undo [action]. (You cannot undo certain actions, such as
scrolling.)
To redo an action, choose Edit > Redo [action].
To undo all changes made since the last time you saved the project, choose File > Revert (InDesign) or File >
Revert Content (InCopy).
To close a dialog box without applying changes, click Cancel.
Moving through documents
Scrolling through documents
You can use the scroll bars (along the bottom and right sides of the InCopy window) or scroll with a mouse wheel or
sensor in any view.
You can also use the Page Up, Page Down, and arrow keys on the keyboard to move through a story. In Layout view,
pressing Page Up or Page Down shifts to the next or previous page in the layout. In Galley or Story view, Page Up and
Page Down shift the view by one screen; the view doesnt necessarily go to the next page break. The Up Arrow and
Down Arrow keys move the insertion point within the copy and scroll the view as necessary so that you can always see
the insertion point.
In Layout view only, you can also use the Hand tool to move the document view in any direction.

Move through a document with the Hand tool
Some options for moving around within a story depend on whether you’re working in Galley, Story, or Layout view. In
Galley and Story view, you must use the scroll bars to see text that doesn’t fit in the view. In Layout view, you can also
use the Hand tool, page buttons, and commands.
In Layout view, select the Hand tool , and then drag the document to move it.
To use power zoom when the Hand tool is selected, hold down the mouse button. This technique offers a quick way to
scroll through multiple document pages.
Go to another page in Layout view
Do one of the following:
Click the buttons in the status bar, as shown in the following illustration.
A First-spread button B Previous-spread button C Page number display box D Next-spread button E Last-spread button
Choose the page number from the pop-up menu on the status bar.
Jump to position markers
You can set a marker at a specific location in the text so that you can easily return to it using a command or shortcut.
A position marker is useful if you change your place in the document to do another action, for example, to verify a fact
in another area of text. A document can have only one position marker per session; inserting a marker deletes a
previously placed marker. Closing a document also deletes a marker.
Choose Edit > Position Marker, and do any of the following:
To add a marker, place the insertion point in the text and then select Insert Marker.
To replace an existing marker, select Replace Marker.
To delete a marker, select Remove Marker.
To return to a marker, selec t Go To Marker.

Customizing preferences and defaults
About preferences
Preferences include settings such as panel positions, measurement options, and display options for graphics and
typography.
The difference between preferences and defaults is the area to which each applies. Preference settings specify the initial
appearance and behavior of certain InCopy features. Default settings apply to InCopy documents.
Note: InCopy preference settings are fully scriptable. To share a consistent set of preferences across user groups, develop a
script to set the preferences, and then have all users in the group run the script on their computers. Don’t copy and paste
one user’s preferences files onto another computer, as doing so might cause application instability. For more information
about scripting, see the InCopy Scripting Guide on the Adobe website.
Set defaults
If you change settings when no documents are open, your changes set the defaults for new documents. If a document
is open when you change settings, the changes affect only that document.
Similarly, if you change settings when no objects are selected, your changes set the defaults for new objects.
Change default settings for new documents
1Close all documents.
2Change any menu items or panel or dialog box settings.
If you use the same page size and language for most of your documents, you can change these defaults with no document
open. For example, to change the default page size, close all documents, choose File > Document Setup, and select a
desired page size. To set a default dictionary, close all documents, choose Edit > Preferences > Dictionary (Windows) or
InCopy > Preferences > Dictionary (Mac OS), and select an option from the Language menu.

Chapter 4: InCopy documents
Using an InCopy workflow
In Adobe® InCopy®, you can create stand-alone documents, or you can work with documents that are linked to Adobe®
InDesign®. When you work with linked documents, you can have more than one InCopy story in an InDesign file,
depending on your workflow system. Writers, editors, and designers can work simultaneously on the same InDesign
document, without overwriting each other’s work.
About InCopy workflows
Tight integration between InCopy and InDesign enables a workflow that lets writers, editors, and designers work
simultaneously on the same InDesign document, without overwriting each other’s work. The workflow system allows
users to check files out and in, thereby preserving file integrity.
InCopy users can view their content contributions within the context of layouts without installing InDesign. Using
InCopy, writers and editors can take full control of text, including typesetting functions such as applying formatting
styles (usually imported from InDesign), copyfitting, adjusting line and page breaks, setting hyphenation, kerning, and
so on. InCopy users can import graphics to enhance their stories, and make limited transformations on those graphics,
such as scaling and cropping. After the content is saved in InCopy, the document can be updated in InDesign. In
addition, InDesign users can share design updates with InCopy users, ensuring they are working with the latest layouts.
Typically, a system integrator customizes the interaction between InCopy and InDesign, setting up and defining the
workflow system for the group. The workflow system controls file creation, synchronization (with the master server),
and viewing. InCopy and InDesign work with several different workflow systems, including the built-in system enabled
by the InCopy® LiveEdit Workflow plug-ins for small workgroups. For specific details about your workflow system, talk
to the system integrator.
About linked (managed) documents
A linked InCopy document is a content file (either text or graphics) that is placed in an open InDesign document or
assignment file. The content is associated with an InDesign layout, and therefore managed by the InDesign document.
The InDesign user makes this connection from within InDesign; you cannot create or manage the link from InCopy.
The InDesign connection can be made before the InCopy user starts writing and editing text, while the writing is in
progress, or after the text work is finished. Once the content is linked, the InCopy user can see (but not change) the
page layouts, styles, and so on, as they appear in the InDesign document.
Linked documents have the following additional characteristics:
With a linked InCopy file, you can do just about anything that concerns the text itself. For example, you can specify
text-formatting options, change fonts, and carry out other editing and copyfitting functions within the design and
formatting limits of the InDesign layout and your workflow system. You cannot, however, change the text or
graphics frames, column layout, threading sequence, or any other design elements; these are set up in InDesign.
86
InCopy documents
Last updated 6/13/2015
Linked content is managed by your workflow system, where it is locked for access control. Your system might offer
several options for opening a linked story, such as checking out each InCopy file so that you alone can work on it.
For instructions, see your workflow system documentation or ask your system administrator, or check out content
using InCopy if your workflow uses the InCopy LiveEdit Workflow plug-ins.
Working with multistory files
When you work with linked documents, you can have more than one InCopy story in an InDesign file, depending on
your workflow system. A file with multiple stories must be created in InDesign as either an assignment file or an
InDesign file with linked InCopy content. You cannot use InCopy to create a multistory document. See your workflow
system documentation for details.
Multiple stories are shown and separated in Galley and Story views with a story separator bar. The story separator bar
provides easy access to each story created within an InDesign document.
The story separator bar contains the story title and an expand and collapse button which enables you to show or hide
each story. When a story is collapsed, the text is hidden and the story separator bar remains visible within the edit pane.

Ways to work with content inInCopy
Transforming graphics
Position tool overview
Click the Position tool in the toolbox to manipulate selected graphics, either directly, in conjunction with a
Transform command (Object > Transform) or a command on a context menu, or by using keyboard shortcuts to nudge
the graphic within its frame.
The Position tool is dynamic, automatically changing to reflect different states:
When placed directly over an empty graphics frame or frame with unassigned content after using the File > Place
command, it changes to the loaded graphics icon to indicate that you can import the graphic into that frame.
When it’s placed directly over a graphic, it changes to the Hand tool to indicate that you can select the graphic and
manipulate it within the frame.

When placed over the bounding box handle of an inline graphic, it changes to the resize arrow to indicate that
dragging will resize the graphic.
When placed over a graphics frame or the top-level container of nested frames, it changes to the object select icon
to indicate that you can select the graphic or nested frame under the pointer. You cannot select the frame itself.
When placed over a text frame, it changes to the I-beam to indicate a text insertion point.
Set Position tool options
When using the Position tool to move a graphic, you can hold down the mouse button for a few seconds to display a
dynamic graphics preview (a ghosted-back image) of any part of the image that is outside the frame. You can control
the display and delay of the preview.
1Double-click the Position tool in the toolbox.
2From the Show Masked Portion of Image menu, select the rate at which the entire image will appear while dragging,
or select to turn it off entirely.
Transform graphics
You can use commands to move, scale, rotate, and shear graphics.
Move a graphic
1Make sure the frame with the desired object is checked out to you, and then select the object using the Position tool
.
2Choose Object > Transform > Move.
3In the Move dialog box, do one of the following:
Enter the horizontal and vertical distances that you want the graphic to move. Positive values move the object
down and to the right of the x axis; negative values move the object up and to the left.
To move an object a precise distance and angle, enter the distance and angle for the move. The angle you enter is
calculated in degrees from the x axis. Positive angles specify a counterclockwise move; negative angles specify a
clockwise move. You can also enter values between 180° and 360°; these values are converted to their
corresponding negative values (for example, a value of 270° is converted to –90°).
4Do one of the following:
To preview the effect before you apply it, select Preview.
To move the object, click OK.
Scale a graphic
1Make sure the frame with the desired object is checked out to you, and then select the object using the Position tool
.
2Choose Object > Transform > Scale.
3In the Scale dialog box, make sure the Constrain Proportions icon is selected if you want to preserve the relative
height and width of the object. Deselect this icon if you want to scale the X and Y values separately, which may result
in the image being skewed.
4Enter the horizontal and vertical scale values as either percentages (such as 90%) or distance values (such as 6p).
The scale values can be negative numbers.

Work with stand-alone documents
An InCopy document that is not associated with an InDesign document is called a stand-alone document. You can set
up and modify the text area, page size, and orientation for stand-alone documents. However, if the story is later linked
to an InDesign document, the InDesign settings override the settings used in InCopy.
Note: You can also click Save Preset to save document settings for future use. When creating a new document, you can
simply choose it from the Document Preset menu and click OK without having to change any settings. If you’re working in
an editorial workgroup, these saved presets can be shared with other members of your team. (See Define custom document
presets.)

1Choose File > New.
2To create a document that does not have facing pages in each spread, deselect Facing Pages.
3From the Text Area menu, choose Frame Grid to create a document with a grid into which Japanese characters are
set, or choose Text Frame to create a plain text frame. (See About frame grids in InCopy documents.)
4Under Text Area, type values for Width and Depth. Text dimensions provide accurate line break information
without relying on InDesign for copyfit information.
5Specify whether the text direction is horizontal or vertical.
You can change this setting any time by choosing Type > Writing Direction > Horizontal or Vertical.
6In the Grid Attributes section, specify the frame grid characteristics for vertical and horizontal scaling, character
aki, and line aki. (See Document setup options for frame grids.) These grid attributes do not appear if you’re creating
a plain text frame.

Include previews in saved documents
Thumbnail previews of documents and templates provide easy identification of those files in Adobe Bridge and Adobe
Mini Bridge. A preview is created when you save a document or template. A document preview includes a JPEG image
of only the first spread; a template preview includes a JPEG image of each page in the template. You can control the size
of the preview and the number of pages to suit your needs. For example, Extra Large 1024x1024 enables you to quickly
scan the contents of a page at high-resolution before you open the file.

InCopy file types
You can work with several different file types in InCopy.
InCopy content files (.icml) This is the default file type when exporting stories or graphics from InDesign, and when
saving or creating new documents using InCopy. This file type appears as InCopy Document in the Export or Save As
dialog box.
InCopy CS3 Interchange files (.incx) This is a legacy file type used in InCopy CS3 and earlier.
Assignment files (.icma) These files are a subset of an InDesign document. They display content and styles, as well as
page geometry from the parent InDesign file. Assignment files can display different levels of visual fidelity (wireframe,
assigned spreads, or all spreads). The InDesign user sets these options while creating the assignment file. Only InDesign
users can create assignment files; only InCopy users can open assignment files.
Legacy assignment files for InCopy CS3 used the .inca extension.
Assignment package files (.icap) These files are assignment files that have been compressed in InDesign for
distribution. Assignment packages include the assignment file, the assigned story files, and any linked images.
Legacy InCopy CS3 assignment packages used the .incp extension.
Template files (.icmt) Templates are useful starting points for stand-alone documents, because you can preset them
with page size dimensions, text area dimensions, styles (paragraph and character), XML tags, swatches, pretagged
sample content, and so on. Template files open as “Untitled documents and display content and styles, but no page
geometry (layout information from an InDesign document). This file type appears as InCopy Template in the Save As
dialog box.
InDesign files (.indd) When viewed in InCopy, these files provide full fidelity with the InDesign document, including
content, styles, and layout of all page items. InCopy users can edit only those content items made available to them by
InDesign users. Other items can be viewed but not edited.
You can open several different types of text files, including Microsoft Word, RTF, and TXT files, directly in InCopy.
When you do so, the import options for that file type appear.

Export InCopy documents
You can save all or part of an InCopy document in a different file format. In most cases, each component (for example,
text frames and graphics) in an InCopy document is exported to a separate file. The exception is exporting an InCopy
document to Adobe PDF, which copies all of the text and graphics in a document to a single PDF file.
1Do one of the following:
To export text, click in the text with the Type tool .
To export a graphic, click the graphic with the Position tool .
2Choose File > Export.
3Specify a name and location for the exported content, and then select a format under Save As Type.
The XML format appears in the list only if XML tags have been added to the document. If you are exporting text
and dont see a listing for your word-processing application, you might need to export the text in a format that the
application can import, such as Rich Text Format. If your word-processing application doesn’t support any of the
InCopy export formats, use the Text Only (ASCII) format.
Note: Exporting in ASCII format removes all character attributes from the text. To retain all formatting, use the InCopy
Tagged Text export filter.
4Click Save to export the content in the format you’ve selected.
Rename InCopy stories
When a story is exported from InDesign, it is given a document filename with a .icml extension. InCopy automatically
uses this filename as the story name that appears in the Assignments panel in InDesign and the story separator bar.
Unlike the filename, the story name is embedded in the file.
1To change a story name manually, open a story file in InCopy.
2Choose File > Content File Info.
3Make sure that the Description tab is selected, and then type a new name for Document Title.
Note: Depending on the workflow processes of your system, an administrator might have to change the story name for you.
If you are unable to rename the story by following the steps above, talk to your workflow administrator.
You can also change the story name in the Assignments panel when the story is checked out. However, the filename is
not changed on disk.
Export content to Buzzword
Buzzword is a web-based text editor that lets users create and store text files on a web server. When you export a story
to Buzzword, you create a text file on the Buzzword server.
1Select text or place the insertion point in a text frame that is part of the story you want to export.

You can import graphics into existing frames only. Only InDesign users can create graphics frames. In standalone
InCopy documents, you can insert a graphic into the default text frame, making it an inline graphic.
InCopy supports the same wide range of graphics file formats as InDesign, including graphics created using Adobe®
Illustrator® 8.0 and later, bitmap formats such as PDF, PSD, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, and BMP, and vector formats such as EPS.
You can even import InDesign (INDD) pages as images. Other supported formats include DCS, PICT, WMF, EMF,
PCX, PNG, and Scitex CT (.SCT).
Notes on placing graphics in InCopy
When you import graphics into InCopy, keep the following in mind:
For managed content, you must check out a frame before you can import a graphic into it.
Once you import a graphic, you can transform (move, scale, rotate, shear) it inside the frame, fit the graphic to the
frame, and control the graphic’s appearance. You can also tag a selected frame for future XML use by selecting
commands from the context menu.
When InDesign users create a new frame, they specify whether it is a text, graphics, or unassigned frame. InCopy
users cannot change this frame type within InCopy. Therefore, if you try to import a graphic into a text frame, for
example, it may appear as a large inline graphic.
You can select and modify the graphics but not the frames in InCopy, unless they are nested or inline frames. Only
InDesign users can modify graphics frames.
You can place, paste, or drag graphics into an anchored, floating, or inline graphics frame. You can import a graphic
into a text frame only if that frame has an active insertion point or is an inline graphics frame.
If you import a graphic into a nested frame, the graphic is imported into the deepest-level frame under the pointer.
Nested frames that contain graphics, unlike top-level frames, can be selected with the Position tool. (See Position
tool overview.)
If an effect, such as transparency, drop shadow, or feathering, is applied to a frame in InDesign, it will be visible in
an assignment file or InDesign (.indd) file open in InCopy. It will not be visible in a linked (.icml) file open in
InCopy.

To place a graphic in an existing graphics frame, make sure the frame is checked out to you, and then drag the
graphic files icon from the file system to the frame.
To place a graphic at an active text insertion point, drag the graphic file’s icon to any place in the text frame. This
method is available only in Layout view.
Paste a graphic into a frame
1Make sure the graphics frame is checked out to you. The Editing icon appears in the upper left corner of the
frame.
2Cut or copy a graphic.
3Hold the Hand tool over the graphics frame, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS), and then choose

Encapsulated PostScript (.eps) import options
When you place an EPS graphic (or a file saved with Illustrator 8.0 or earlier) and select Show Import Options in the
Place dialog box, you’ll see a dialog box containing these options:
Read Embedded OPI Image Links This option tells InCopy to read links from OPI comments for images included (or
nested) in the graphic.
Deselect this option if you’re using a proxy-based workflow and plan to have your service providers perform the image
replacement using their OPI software. When this option is deselected, InDesign preserves the OPI links but does not
read them. When you print or export, the proxy and the links are passed on to the output file.
Select this option if you’re using a proxy-based workflow and you want InDesign, instead of your service provider, to
perform image replacement when you output the final file. When you select this option, the OPI links appear in the
Link
