Once all Page Images are assigned to pages, the final book is shown in the preview area of mz3Tool and you can make the first check.
To operate the book already in the preview area of mz3Tool, the optionally possible automatic opening of the “Modify Elements On Pages” option should be disabled.
This can be achieved via a configuration of the respective Checkbox “Open On Click” in Basic Settings

mz3Viewer can be opened with a click on Open in Mz3Viewer, if mz3Viewer is assigned as default APp to files with mz3 extension.
To check a “Javascript” Online Package, please start the book in your browser from a local server (see XAMPP: Use of a local Server) or after you uploaded the Online Package” to your server over the internet.

Once you are happy with the result you can publish your book.

Depending on the choice you made in Basic Settings,

either the JavaScript version or an mz3Viewer package will be built using the Command – Publish/Distribute command.

In case of potential problems, a warning is given and the conflicting parameters are marked in red, like:

  • more Page Images available than Pages
  • not sufficient Page Images for all pages of the book available
  • Number of thumbnails not according to the number of pages / used Page Images

In such case you should open the Modify ELements On Pages Fenster window and check if unused elements are found, that can be safely deleted using the “Clean-Up” button. Otherwise, the size of the package would be bigger than necessary.

If all looks good you can press the Publish button and start building the appropriate package:

  • Javascript
    The perfect option to show the book on all common devices (Windows, MAC, iOS or Android smartphones and tablets)
  • mz3Viewer
    For use on a computer (Windows or MAC) without the need for a network/Internet connection.
    And in case you want to make use of the full MegaZine3 functionality (the Javascript version does not support all features yet, like slideshow, zoom, search)
