First beta prototype of e2publish here now!

I’m irritable, sleep-deprived, and a little nervous about subjecting my creation to public scrutiny.

This is the first public beta test prototype of the sophisticated AIR publish application that I’ve been blogging about for a while.

An ambitious project such as this relies on the feedback of test users.  Comments, suggestions, recommendations, ideas, and bug reports.  Let me know what you think?  Please be kind and constructive.

There have been some minor changes to the interface since I made the video presentation below.  But it’s still a useful feature guide.

The most novel feature is way the text arranges itself to wrap around the pictures, wherever they are placed on the page.  I haven’t seen any other flash-based word-processor with such a powerful layout algorithm.

I’ve also uploaded new improved versions of e2spreadsheet and e2vector.  If you have an older version, you’ll need to remove it before installing this new one.

    Hi Daniel,

    It’s great to see what you’ve created – I think there could be a lot of potential in web-based design of magazines and similar products. You might be interested in taking at the videos on our demo site, which show our DTP-type Text Layout Framework based tool.

    All the best, Tom
