Output Structure

When you are using the aXmag PC professional version to convert and have not assigned the output folder, you can find the converted aXmag files in a new created folder which is in default created in the same name with the PDF file and is created in the same directory with the PDF file.
Using the PC professional version, you can view the conversion result directly after conversion by clicking the "View It" button or open the output files folder by clicking the "Open Folder" button:
     pc open
Click on "View it" to view the conversion result.
Click on "Open Folder" to get the converted files:
The FLASH folder stores files for readers to read using with PC, Mac and other systems. The HTML5 folder stores files for reading in iPads.

In the FLASH folder, following files are created:
All created files in the FLASH folder are .html, .swf, .xml and .jpg files will also be created, all items can be viewed using a non-axmag-installed computer without purchasing any additional software. (Adobe Flash player plug-in for IE, Chrome, Safari, FireFox, Opera and other web browsers are required, this is a freeware, more information here. For some new computers, flash players may not have been installed, but when axmag publication is first loading flash files in web browsers, the adobe flash player plug-in will be automatically downloaded and installed with your permission.)

In the HTML5 folder, following files are created:
To test or view the HTML5 files on your local computer, you may open this index.html file directly in Safari.

To host these files online is easy, all you need is to upload the entire output folder to your server and open the URL for the first index.html file (the index.html file with the FLASH folder and the HTML5 folder) then you can read the publication online. When end users opens this URL, it will auto detect the reader’s system, if the user is using PC or Mac, it will redirect the user to read the files in the FLASH folder, if it is an iPad user, then the in the HTM5 folder will show.

Please note, all these files and folders are necessary for the whole publication.
