FlowPaper 3.3.2 Release Notes

7 August 2019

We’re testing the final bits and pieces for our upcoming release which is scheduled for next week. This release is focused at providing much-improved support for building and designing responsive web pages using the web page builder template which can be found in the dashboard inside the desktop publisher. The template combines powerful PDF extraction tools together with a responsive page designer.

You can find the sample publication we created in the animated demo below here: https://online.flowpaper.com/7a3c073e/TravelMagazine/
