In order for folios to be available for download, they need to be published to the Adobe Distribution Service. To publish a folio, you have to sign in to the DPS Dashboard and click on the Folio Producer. In the Folio Producer Organizer, select the folio and then the Publish option. From there, you have to enter the desired settings for the folio, including whether it is intended to be private or public, or free versus retail, and you need to specify a Product ID. Clicking Publish after these options have been selected completes the publish step.


To learn more about publishing folios, see Adobe’s tutorial on publishing folios to the Distribution Service.
