New Adobe InCopy Training Course Released

Adobe InCopy is a powerful tool that provides capabilities far beyond what is possible using more primitive tools. That being said, the learning curve for new InCopy users isn’t always easy, especially for users who are accustomed to using Microsoft Word to write and edit content. Add to that the numerous possible configurations in which to use InCopy and it can become a bit overwhelming to implement and use InCopy efficiently.

    Hi Chad

    I’d like to say that I’ve already taken your above mentioned course and thoroughly enjoyed it.
    It was first class!

  • Miss Diana says:

    This sounds great! However, I have CS4 and CS6 — not CC, nor CC 2017. Would this course help me if I’ve never used InCopy (or InDesign, for that matter) before? Or is there a better place to start? Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.
    Many thanks.

  • Miss Diana, if you’ve never used either program, I’m curious why you want to learn it? Do you work for a publication?

    Most of our clients are in XML workflow, we noticed some limitations in InCopy while creating Assignments from InDesign in XML workflow, that stories are looks blank in InCopy could you please check and advise on any training material to fix this feedback?
