Options for Publishing an Issue

After uploading the PDF file to the Pegasus Workbench and making the enrichments, the final step is preparing the issue for release. 

In the "Publication" overview you have a range of options available:

Meta Information:

Issue title - The title of the issue is displayed at the bottom of the cover within the kiosk view. There is space for approximately 20 characters, the rest of the title will be abbreviated with an ellipsis ("...").

Preview Description (optional) - This is an optional description which can be accessed via clicking on the "Info" button. It acts as a teaser for the issue and the topics covered. 

Categories (optional) - Issues can be assigned to categories that you have created for the publication. An issue is allowed to be assigned to multiple categories.  

Release Date- Determines when the issue becomes available to readers. Even if the issue is already published, it is only visible from the date and time specified. However, all published editions are visible in the Preview Apps (which allows you to preview content before its public release). 

Language - Determines the language of the issue content. If the "read aloud" or "text-to-speech" function is active, the article is read aloud in the default language.

Text Mode disabled / enabled - If text mode is enabled, the article opens in reading mode as soon as the reader clicks on the article. For a more enjoyable reading experience, the text blocks of an article should be merged. If the manual effort is too high or the reading mode is not relevant for your publication, text mode can also be deactivated. All text remains present as part of the page background and may still be found in searches. However, the reader will no longer be able to enter reading mode. 


Single Purchase Settings

If the issue is available free of charge, you do not have to add any data in this form. 

Price in Cents - Defines the price for the issue. Please note that Apple has fixed price levels which must be used. (Apple Price Tier Matrix)

Currency - Which currency is used as a reference?

Product IDs (Apple, Google) - If the issue is offered as an in-app purchase, an in-app product must also be created for each issue in the App Stores. The unique Product ID must then be entered here.

Preview Pages

Preview pages are the selection of pages which can be viewed by readers without purchasing the issue. Only paid content has previews, readers automatically get full access to free content.

By default, the first five pages of an issue are selected as the free sample. The maximum number of preview pages that can be selected is 25. To remove a page from the preview selection, click on the "X". To add a page to the selection, click on the "+" of the small thumbnail image. 




Delete Issue

To delete the issue, click on the "Delete" button. 

Note: Deleted issues cannot be restored! Please double check that the issue is no longer needed, before choosing the option to delete it. If you simply want to make the issue no longer visible to readers, it is sufficient to withdraw its publication.
