Your copy editors will receive email notifications on InCopy stories that are assigned to them and/or available for them to edit.

Once your stories are sent to the copy editors, new options will appear beside your stories in the extension.

On the other hand, the text frames will be locked for editing and will display a no symbol over the green T icon.
