loving the software, but having some issues with the output. 

setting up the screen sizes and what type of output seems to be a bit fuzzy. when you are making something for print (say word template) should this same publisher file work well for mobile divice output without much fussing with the file?  i seem to be not grasping this part... just when i think i get something looking good i then push it out to mobile and things look nothing like the screen or print version.

Hi Ian -


Different outputs require different setup values, so that is most likely why you are experiencing some inconsistencies when exporting a presentation set up for Print to Mobile.


It's a good idea to set up a seperate storyboard for each output format. After the presentation has been completed, simply copy/paste the Storyboard to create an identical copy to manipulate. See screenshot below for a sample.

Inside the Mobile storyboard, you can quickly set the Publish Area appropriately using the "set affected snapshots" command. Right-click on any snapshot within the Mobile storyboard and select Set Affected Snapshots for All Snapshots within the Storyboard.

With the snapshots activated, modify the Publish Area to the appropriate iPad settings (1024x768).


<see attachment: publish area.png>


This will automatically update the Publish Area of every snapshot within the storyboard to these settings. At this point, it's a good idea to take a pass through the snapshots and ensure the views are within the boundaries.


You're now ready to publish to Mobile with much higher fidelity than before.


Good Luck!
