New to the idea of ebooks

Webbie Hi - I am new not only to this forum but to the idea of writing ebooks.  My husband and I are putting together content for 2 ebooks so I am on the hunt for information and I am hoping that this forum will be my "pot o' gold"!  I am with the understanding that I can use word or even dreamweaver to write the ebooks.  What I have been unable to find is what is the difference between "printable" and "viewable" ebooks.  How do I find the definition?  Any information, advice is immensley appreciated!  I look forward to being an active member on this forum! Thanks, Webbie

Storyman Webbie,

Viewable means that the ebook can be viewed, but not printed. Printable means that the ebook can be viewed as well as printed.

Since Activ e-Book allows you to use CSS, I'd suggest going with Dreamweaver. Another advantage with DW is that you can create your ebook using different folders, then when you are ready to compile the files can all be moved into the root directory (which Activ e-Book requires) and DW will update all of the links.

Webbie Hi and thanks for your post.  I have used DW for 2 websites so it will be interesting to use it for an ebook(s).  What I meant by my question about printable vs viewable is, how do you make the choice for which one you want.  This is an area that I know nothing about.  Someone is it p/w protected or?  Thanks again, Webbie

Storyman Webbie,

Yes, it is password protected. You might want to read through the various threads that discuss the various types of security.

As for printable/viewable. It is well documented in the manual, which I recommend you read.
