When you print the Galley or Story view, InCopy prints unformatted text in a continuous column (or columns), without layout and formatting features. Printing in Galley or Story view gives you a hard copy that resembles galleys in traditional publishing. The galley format makes it easy to concentrate on the textual content of a story, and to see the changes made by you and other contributors.
If your document does not print correctly, make sure that the correct printer driver is installed.
When you print the Layout view, InCopy prints the document as it appears on the screen, with frames and all other page elements intact.
Because InCopy is not designed for production-quality printing, it does not include controls for trapping, printer’s marks, color separations, and certain graphics-related printing functions. InCopy handles only composite printing.
If your document does not print correctly, make sure that the correct print driver is installed.
As an alternative to printing a document to a printer, you can save an Adobe PostScript® language description of the document as a file for printing on remote printers. A standard PostScript (.ps) file contains a description of everything in your document, including information about linked files and instructions tailored to the currently selected output device.
A PostScript file is usually larger than the original InCopy document. Once you create the PostScript file, you can copy it to a disk or other removable storage device, or send it to another computer for printing.
Be sure to save the PostScript file to your hard drive before transferring the file to a network drive or removable media. The slower access time between the hard drive and other drives can cause file corruption or loss of data, and might damage your document.
You can save print settings with the application, so that new InCopy documents use the same print settings. In Mac OS, these print settings also become the default for the printer. You can override individual print settings.
When you print from Layout view, you can control how your document pages fit on the chosen paper size by scaling. The maximum page size you can print from a Windows system is 129 by 129 inches. To fit an oversized document on a smaller piece of paper, you can scale the document width and height either symmetrically or asymmetrically. You can also automatically scale the pages to fit the imageable area of the current paper size. Scaling does not affect the size of the pages in the document.
