Why Live Publications

Easy Distribution
Live Publications is available in three different mediums.

Web based
Live Publications is suitable for both online and offline browsing. You have the option to view your documents on the web, or you can download them on your computer system for later use. You can also save Live Publications from the web on your lap top for later presentations without an Internet connection.

This medium makes it very easy to circulate your document. All you need to do is attach the file to your e-mail and send it to millions of users. Also, this is great for brochures and surveys because it has an interactive form which can be filled out and submitted by the viewer.

Live Publications can also be distributed via standard or business card sized CDs. You have the option to incorporate large media files such as video files, and animations. This option is suitable for distribution of product catalogs, e-annual reports, photo albums, e-books, and user manuals.

Easy To Read and Use – User Experience Is Similar to Print Publication
Even an inexperienced user will quickly learn to navigate your digital publication using familiar features like these:

No Special Software
Live Publications only require an Internet connection, a web browser, and Flash, a standard feature on most web browsers, and free and easy to download.

Interactive Table of Contents
This feature is available at both zoom levels. User clicks on the content button, which shows the title of the pages predefined in the Content Panel. You can simply click on any title to directly jump to that page.

Easy Printing
The Print button in the main header menu allows the user to easily print the page at any zoom level. The default print size is 8 1/2 x 11, which is standard letter size.

Book Mark
This function allows the user to “book mark” any page in the publication. The viewer can go back at a later time to review the book-marked pages since they are saved in the memory.

Highlight feature helps users remember important information like text links or images. Once highlight is applied it will be saved and your digital publication will always remember it even if the application is closed. User can always add or delete Highlighted areas.

Advanced Search
This enables the reader to search specific words throughout the publication. Once the search is complete the page numbers where the word was found will appear, giving the reader the option to jump directly to that page.

Dual Page View
This option allows the reader to view a two-page spread just like a printed magazine.
