Although CS5 includes many programs that can work with type or text (which you can learn about in Part IV), a word processor is not included as part of the suite. Text for design purposes is very different from text produced with a word processor, but there are times in your design workflow when you want to export text from CS5 applications into a word processor.
Writing copy is often much easier in a word processor because its features focus on manipulating text rather than design. For example, Microsoft Word includes a grammar checker that benefits longer sections of text. You can take advantage of this feature by exporting text to a word processor, checking its grammar, and then importing it again.
Of the available word processors, Microsoft Word is the most popular. Most word processors available today have similar features, so we focus only on Word in this chapter. We also cover the text-export features found in the CS applications that enable you to move text to Microsoft Word and the other Office applications.
