  • Ability to assemble any number of chapters in any order
  • Multi-column output
  • Different generation modes, including instructor edition, student edition, and preview edition
  • Support for high resolution (print-ready PDF) and low resolution (web-ready PDF) imagery

  • Complex formatting, embedded font, bleeds and column-balancing
  • Linking internal cross-references
