Make Anchored text box and table content visible in InCopy story editor
Anchored objects only appear as icons in the InCopy story editor tab. This is no problem for photos and graphics, however:
My editors can't see tracked changes if they can't view the anchored text or tables in the Story Editor. They can make edits in Layout view, but can't tell if another editor made any edits.
Unlike InDesign where I can see track changes in the Story editor just by clicking in the anchored text or table, InCopy has no alternative — editors have only the Story tab and it doesn't appear there.
This is a crucial feature for us. We are now designing for ADA compliance and use anchored objects, text and tables to maintain reading order.
Unfortunately, anchored text and tables slow down the editing process as our editors switch between views, and reduce accuracy since they can't see tracked changes. This feature will help improve the speed and accuracy of our production of ADA compliant PDFs. Thanks!
