TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

INTRODUCTION

A specific Tablet Material may only be published as an enhancement of a Paper Material.
There is a Standard Send function for sending Tablet Materials; they cannot be sent attached to Bookings or combined with Paper Materials.
During the Standard Send procedure you will be prompted for some data necessary to ensure the material is published correctly.
When it has received the Tablet Material file, the system checks its size and makes it directly available for combination with the Paper Material; the format of the file must therefore already conform to the requirements for publication on the Tablet.
