What is the difference between editing and copyediting?

The editor works with the author for however many drafts to tackle the big picture issues. When they are satisfied with the manuscript, a copywriter will take over. According to Dreyer, copyediting is a nuclear level of attention to details that include things like making sure there are no errors, checking the author’s word usage, and applies the rules of grammar that suits the copy editor.
