Over the past couple of months we have intensively worked on further developing the Purple Publishing Suite. We have not only advanced our product development but also our documentation.

In our Knowledgebase, you can now find video tutorials and step-by-step instructions for PDF and eMagazines (based on Adobe Photoshop® and Adobe InDesign®) projects.
