General questions

toolkit Just bought Activ E-Book, and I appreciate being able to produce an ebook in less than an hour even though I have never used this type of program before!

It is obvious is has a lot of features, but I am worried about the size of ebooks I am planning to send.  A 230K word doc became a 1.9 meg ebook.  Is this just because of the program .exe that is added?

This would seem to cause problems for people who have AOL and other space limited email attachment services.  

Do all ebooks create files of such size?

Of course, I could zip the file, but some people may not have winzip.  Any suggestions?

Also, my daughter and I would like to produce ebooks together on our home networked computers.  Can I enter the registration key on the two different computers without you thinking we are illegally distributing your software?  How should we do that?

Here's hoping you will soon have an option to only allow printing on certain pages of our ebooks!

EBookCompiler Hi Bob,

Congrats on finishing your first E-Book so quickly!

Check this:
1. If you made your own splash screen: Your splash screen is saved as 16 color or black and white (it's on the save as type in Paint)
2. Check the Files tab in the compiler. You are probably including some files in your E-book that you don't need to.  Double click on a file and you can exclude it.  You probably don't need any EXE, AEP, DOC filesin the directory, so can exclude them.

For your daughter, you should buy a second license.  E-mail me privately if you want help, at webmaster@ebookcompiler.com . I would prefer to take registration questions via e-mail if that's okay
