Expanding the creative scope

Scrollable elements dramatically increase the creative leeway. Assigning audio files to pages provides for automatic sound when pages are opened. Two-finger swipes to switch to the next story and more.
New features are available for the design of a table of contents – a vertical list that pops up in a separate window. A new scrubber in the page navigator similar to the navigation used in iBooks.
Furthermore, the Digital Magazine Tools 1.4 allow for new extension possibilities. Custom Page Objects allows third parties to add their own functionality to the digital magazine code. Web elements can be shown embedded in the page, as a pop-up in the application or in the Web browser outside the app.
