Print Control in Active E-Book

TSEROOGY Active E-Book allows some control of the print function through the use of passwords and/or the print option.

I would like to know if there is an Add-In that allows greater control over the print control - i.e. pages to print, number of copies, etc?

To some degree, I have been able to control the print function by not making the print feature available through Active E-book. Instead, I make it available directly through script in the page. Once the book has been printed, the button is disabled.

This works well, but script does not allow access to the print control. Needless to say, although this feature is only active on the first printing, the user is allowed to print as many copies as they wish.

Thanks for any input.

Best regards,

EBookCompiler The built-in features are all or none (you can print or you can't).  You may make suggestions for possible future enhancements in the thread about version 5, we make no promises that your suggestions will be added - just that they will be read.

You may be able to do more with scripting. There are some javascripts that affect printing in IE, that should generally woirk - however be sure to test them on computers with older (IE4) browsers, as MS changed IE print support features in different revisions of IE.

gistutor I miss/suggest(:-) features such as:
+ print all pages in an eBook
+ print individual pages or range of pages
+ print preview

there's even a freeware eBook compiler, that has these features!

I suppose, I could setup some JavaScripts to dynamically create a single page from all the pages in my eBook, but I don't want to make that effort.

Perhaps eBookcompiler 5 will have this features :-)
