Adobe Announces Version of InCopy with XML Support

Adobe Systems Incorporated announced Adobe InCopy 2.0, an editorial application built on Adobe InDesign architecture. InCopy software is designed for writers, editors and copy fitters working in cross media publishing environments. New features include support for XML, enhanced editing tools such as dynamic spell check, and an improved user interface that lets users work on multiple views of a story simultaneously. InCopy 2.0 provides writers and editors with the ability to create, import, edit and export stories in XML format. Because InCopy and InDesign share the same XML support, stories created in InCopy can be imported directly into InDesign. This separation of form and content also allows InCopy to create editorial content that can be used for many different media types in any type of workflow. Several new editing tools provide professional writers and editors a more streamlined editorial creation process. Adobe InCopy 2.0 will be available to system integrators as part of an integrated solution in the second (calendar) quarter of 2002. InCopy will be available solely through the Adobe InDesign system integrator channel. Pricing will be determined by the integrators based on individual installations.
