Active E-Book: Next Version

authorbook Suggestions for New Features:

1. Allow "number of trial uses" AND "maximum number of days for trial" to BOTH be specified, so which ever comes first turns-off of a demo version.

2. Add a limit to the number of times an original e-book can be copied (I do not know if this is technically possible).

3. Provide a downloadable PDF file of a users guide to Activ E-Book.

4.  Reduce the "overhead" (the size of the browser interface) contained in the compiled version of an e-book, so the overall compiled book file is smaller.

5. When "building" an e-book, disregard all files in the scanned directory that are not actually used in the book.

6. Probably the most important: I have tried virtually all the on-line automated payment and ID/password schemes on the market and have found none that are cost effective, easy-to-use and flexible.  A normal merchant account (with necessary programming) is too complex and expensive, and the various "*bank" and "*pal" systems are not flexible enough and/or too expensive.

I don't understand what you are asking - from us - in point 6.
