DAR I am new to this program. Dream Weaver 4.0 is my html authoring program. Is it compatible with the Activ EBook ? After I create an html files in Dreamweaver, how do I import them into Activ E-Book?

Thanks for any help at all.

EBookCompiler I don't have direct personal experience of using Dreamweaver, but yes it should be

It should create a folder on HTML files.  After you make them in the compiler just do Edit Scan Folder and pick this folder.

One importnat point is your files need to be one folder (no sub folders).  If dreamweaver doesn;'t do this by default either look for an option to change it, or manually fix it, or I can send a DOS utility which you can use on a copy of your work and fixes most of this for you automatically.  Email me if you want the DOS prog.

mberger I use Dreamweaver - and have just completed a trial using Activ E-Book.  I happened to create the original book with sub-directories which I find convenient.

When I completed the e-book in Dreamweaver, I created another site specifically for the Activ E-Book source and copied the files there (I wanted to preserve the file structure to make editing easier).  I moved all files from the sub-folders to the main folder - and chose to update links in the incluced files which Dreamweaver finds.  This fixes all links.  Once that was done, the book compiled fine.
