3.Exporting a Book

Download PDFEdit

3Rabbitz Book supports Single Source Publishing. Once you have prepared contents, you can export them into Web Viewer, PDF, and EPUB.

3.1Web Viewer

Web Viewer is the function of 3Rabbitz Book that allows users to view a book on a web that they prepared. Depending on which Web Theme or Web Viewer Layout is selected, it will have a different look.

Unlike PDF or EPUB that requires newly building of a file when the content is changed, Web Viewer shows the changes made in real time.
