Now that your digital edition has been uploaded, enhanced and custom branded, you can generate a preview to see how your publication will look and behave once published live.
To generate a preview, navigate to the Publish section near the top right of your digital edition's production screen in Publisher:
Prior to previewing and publishing content, the Publish section should look like the below:
Under the "Web" tab, click New Preview and the system will automatically generate a preview link that will remain live for 7 days or 50 views, whichever condition is met first.
You will also see an indication of the size of your publication in MBs (Megabytes) along with the amount of multimedia content within the publication.
IOS & Android Previewing
The previewing process is the same for mobile devices. To generate a preview for iOS or Android, simply click on the relevant tab and click Preview:
When a preview has been generated for iOS, download the YUDU iOS Proofing Application on an iPhone, iPod or iPad and log in with your YUDU Publisher credentials. This will allow you to download and view the iOS preview within a native app environment:
Set publication to Proof (iOS Only)
Once proofed, you are ready to proceed to the publishing stage, so be sure to push the thumbs up button in the bottom right corner of the screen - this sets the publication to Proofed and will enable you to the publish upon returning to YUDU Publisher.
Now that you have generated a preview, assuming you are happy with it, you can proceed to publish your content. However, if you wish to make any amendments to multimedia content, page labels, DRM settings, branding, etc., then you may do so and continue to generate new preview until you are happy with the preview.
TIP: Remember, each time you generate a new preview, the previous proofing link becomes redundant and will no longer work - something to bear in mind if you share previews internally for others to proof.
Once you have final sign-off, you are ready to make the publication live...
