We have added an entirely new web page builder which lets you export content out of your PDF documents into responsive web pages, ePub publications and as packaged apps. The template is available via the dashboard (‘Web Page Builder’ for web page exports and ‘Digital Edition’ for cross-platform distributions) and exports your content in HTML5 format with fonts and graphics fully preserved. This new template speeds up the process of creating digital editions for magazines and other publications with rich layout.
Double click or drag texts, images and user defined areas right out of your PDF documents into fully responsive editions. Export as ePUB3, native apps as well as web editions.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions around how to use this template or how to publish your responsive editions as apps. We’d be more than happy to arrange a demo over Skype or similar to get you started.
