I am running InCopy CS4 on MAC's Lion operating system and I have been having a lot of problems with crashes and losing saves on both sides both InDesign and InCopy. We have the money to upgrade to CS6 but since I am having daily problems now, or so it seems should I go ahead and upgrade now? I guess a better question is will there be problems with CS6 when it comes out, and will there be that many changes from CS5.5?
Thank you in advance.
If you upgarde now you will get the free upgrade of CS6..

Please correct me if I am wrong, but it doesn't look like InCopy is continuing... I see no mention of it anywhere in the CS6 lists...
Could someone confirm if the plug has been pulled from InCopy?
Good news - thanks! However, I did not notice it on the list of software one can get via ADOBE CREATIVE CLOUD (ACC). Would an ACC member have to purchase InCopy separately???
Thanks in advance.
It wouldn't do much good to include InCopy with the Cloud sub since usually
1) Each Cloud subscription is for *one* license/user. The InDesign user is usually not the InCopy user too. I don't believe the EULA will allow sharing the apps among a workgroup.
2) Even if they allowed the Cloud subscriber to share their InCopy license w/someone else, there are normally many more InCopy users than InDesign users (often 5 or 10 IC users to each ID user) in a publication, so most companies would have to buy more standalone copies of InCopy anyway for the rest of the editorial staff.
3) Most InCopy users aren't using the other apps in the suite, so they're not a market for Cloud subscriptions.
All that said, I do hope Adobe has a plan for keeping the standalone InCopy users in synch with the InDesign users who are subscribed to the Cloud and getting incremental updates.
I could not find the price for IncCopy CS6 on the Adobe page for InCopy. Nor could I find any information about changes between Incopy 5 and 6. So I called customer support. Spoke to a very nice woman who was as clueless about InCopy as I was. She wrote down my questions, including my wanting to know how well InCopy CS6 works if I'm using the Cloud and the editor doesn't have a subscription to the Cloud.
She said she would get back to me that afternoon or the next moring. It's been four days, and still no returned call. From what I can tell, you can't even purcase InCopy if you wanted to based on what Adobe has on the InCopy CS6 page.
Gotta love it...
