Cover Page

mmeehan I have just registered Activ E-Book Compiler and I am testing the Cover Page Creator.  I just want to know how to include the Cover Page *** x.cfp in to the E-Book.

Thank you, in advance.

Alaska MM -

 I don't have the Cover Page Creator, but I'm sure that under File, there must be either Export, or Save As menu functions.

 You'll want to save (or export) your ebook cover as either a .jpg file (if it's over 256 colors), as a .gif, or as a .png file; any of these formats can be used on a web or ebook page.

mmeehan Thanks Roger, I can come up with a different format but then how do I include it in the e-Book?

Alaska That would depend on what you wanted to do with it: is it your spash page?  Active has a menu option to select the bitmap of your choosing, so that's the format you'll need to save it in.

Do you want to add it to your content pages?

Then, that would depend on what you were using to build your html pages with:

If you're generating html pages from Word, just copy the images and paste it into the doc.  Then user the 'Save as/ .htm' option.  

 You might want to read the previous posts about losing graphics; you can save your pages as html, but you'll have to tweak the output, because Word likes subdirectories, and Activ doesn't.  

Using Word is not worth it if you have more than a few images.

 If you're using a WYSIWYG editor (some also listed in that previous post), you'd user the Insert/Image option.  Choose a flat directory structure when generating the pages.

 If you are willing to write it from scratch, create a text file, copy the following html into it, and rename the file with an .htm extension.  This web page is as simple as it gets: it declares the html page, displays the image, and closed the markup code.

 Add it to your ebook folder, and add the page to your ebook project.  Of course, you'll need to link to it from a page or the Table of Contents:

...hope this helps -
