Variable fonts

InCopy now includes Variable Fonts, a new Open Type font format that supports custom attributes such as weight, width, slant, optical size, etc. You can change these custom attributes using convenient slider controls available when you click  in the Control panel, Character panel, Character Styles panel, Properties panel, and Paragraph Styles panel.

To locate variable fonts, look for the variable icon next to the font name.

Reverse spell-check

If you've missed a spelling error while checking spellings manually, then you need not worry. You can now dictate the direction or order in which InDesign scans the text in your document for spelling errors.

Two new options, Backward and Forward are added in the Check spelling dialog. With these options, you can easily go back and correct the misspelled word.
