No layout changes are made to the document when edited in this app and no third party data is manipulated. The app contains neither InDesign's paragraph composer, nor advanced image processing tools. The preview will not reflect text position 1:1 with InDesign and some vector graphic attributes are simplified. You need to take into account is that the edited story might need copy fitting in InDesign, if you've added or removed too much text and the text ends up overset or not filling the frames.
