In an editing workflow it is very common for people to print out each round of changes to cover their butt in case someone questions a change later on. Rather than printing out everything and wasting paper, I recommend that editors using InCopy just make PDFs with track changes turned on in the galley/story view for each round. This way, you can see keep track of everything, but you don't have to worry about wasting any paper.

Eerie article for old timers. Shortly after it was bought by MW, the last issue of MacUser touted a similar article that would appear in its next issue. The next issue never came. Better ten years late than never.

Yay! An article about InCopy in the mainstream press. Thank you!

It is interesting that even though InDesign CS5 now has tracked changes, you still can't print out the track change markup nor the inline notes, as you can with InCopy; because you can't print from the Story Editor in InDesign.

One feature about printing from InCopy you left out (though it looks like you covered 99% of everything else, great job); is that when you print (export) the Layout to PDF, you can turn on Print Notes as Annotations. That converts inline notes to Acrobat yellow balloon comments, very useful when sending PDF proofs to freelancers or authors who don't have InCopy.

This too is an InCopy-only feature. It's a puzzlement why InDesign, which has had the Notes feature for a few versions now, still does not offer that option.

Great article; I'll be linking to it and sending clients to it. Do more! ;-)
