Using Activ E-Book Compiler

Danielle Hi there,   I got the trial version today, made my index and source page (source is one long page) using Quick Project, followed all directions-I think- and made sure that index and source page are in source folder. When I tried to "run" I got message- "index page not in source file"- so I refreshed, and still same. Then I started over again and made another book with same contents- and still won't run. Where have I gone wrong?......  Also, once I get it running, will it automatically sort the one long file into pages-or do I need to go back and do that?

EBookCompiler Go to the Files tab in the compiler

Do you see an index.htm or index.html file in the list?

If you don't - this is the reason

My guess is either you picked the wrong folder (use Edit Scan Folder and pick the right one), or you haven't created this file.

The index.htm or index.html is the first page of the ebook that will be displayed

And no you need to tell it what in what page.  The idea is you create 1 HTML file for each page.  The first page's HTML file is called index.htm or index.html, and then you add hyperlinks between them

I don't know which program you're using to create your text - if using Word check out the step-by-step instructions in Getting Started - actually check them, whichever program you're using to write the text

Good luck
