Help: How to create digital magazine with Mag+

Creating your digital magazine with Mag+ starts with InDesign, the most widely used platform in the publishing industry, so designers don’t have to learn any new software. A simple InDesign template takes advantage of built-in functionality like guides and layers to let you place material and transitions where you want. The Mag+ InDesign plug-in lets you add interactivity, transitions and our unique “pinning” commands that allow objects to move dynamically when the user turns the device. This palette is also where designers add video and audio, as well as internal and external links. Video areas, HTML elements and hot spots are set with InDesign boxes, so they can be any size or position. Anyone familiar with InDesign can make beautiful Mag+ pages within an hour of first seeing the tool.

Check out the links in the menu at the left to learn more about the specific Mag+ design features, and check out the video below to see how to make a full optimized, two-layer Mag+ layout in less than 10 minutes. By Mag Plus
