multiple passwords for multiple sections in an ebook

sage Been studying the features of this compiler for possible purchase. Understand the 1000 password feature. Can you use multiple passwords to unlock either the whole book, or one section at a time. My ebook has 3 modules and I would like to permit the book to be downloaded and just sell a password to unlock what the customer wishes to purchase. So there is possibly 4 possible purchase scenarios per ebook, whereby the customer could conceivably purchase a separate password to unlock one section at a time. Would it work with the script athttp://home.att.net/~microcreations.My other question is whether there is any script directions for password deactivation in the event of a refund. Seen some mention of it. I have no script skills and have little desire to reinvent the wheel. Definitely a key feature given the liberal return policies required at Clickbank.

EBookCompiler There is one password-unlock per ebook

i.e. you could unlock all or part of the ebook on entry of password, but you could only do it once

Therefore maybe do your stuff as 3 ebooks, each one separate EXE with separate password

Other idea, I am currently using on my own is to share stuff between ebooks

For Book 1 - I have 2 "editing" folders, stuff unique to book 1, stuff shared in the Big ebook
For Book 2 - I have 2 "editing" folders, stuff unique to book 2, stuff shared in the Big ebook

By "editing", I mean folders where I create/edit the HTML code.

I then have some batch files (outside the compiler) to copy stuff around

BatchBook1 - copies Book 1's 2 folders to Book 1 source folder
BatchBook2 - copies Book 2's 2 folders to Book 2 source folder.
BatchBigBook - copies the shared stuff from Book1 and Book2's folders into BigBook's source folder.

Run the batch file, compile the ebook, and I still only have 1 original copy of each HTML file, but also have temporary copies just to compile if that makes sense

For disabling ebooks, go look over old threads about hyperlock in this forum.

sage Thank you for the reply. I will have to study your suggestion, but I'll probably just go with separate product offerings for now with an internal order opportunity included in each module. I checked on the hyperlock solution which looks good, but I just have to ask you this - if this is as simple as this guy claims how come he is selling it for $20 more than your ebook at $50. It seems to me it's an important enough feature to include either as an option or as part of the ebook compiler and charge a little extra. Then your customers pay you instead of someone else and probably not nearly as much. Just a thought.

EBookCompiler You'll have to see what we might do in future

Incidentally be aware that Hyperlock is a compatible add-on product.  There are lots of compatible add-on products for Activ E-Book Compiler, for many different purposes, and hopefully that is a good thing.
