Folios that have been uploaded to the Folio Producer Organizer can be further customized for publishing in the Folio Producer Editor. Before you publish your Adobe Digital Publishing Suite app, open the Folio Producer Editor by selecting a folio in the Organizer and clicking the Open button. The Editor includes two views: a Thumbnail view for previewing articles and changing properties, and a List view for ordering, locking, and changing article settings that are not available in the Folio Builder panel, which include:

  • Locking an article so it cannot be updated.
  • Setting the download priority.
  • Protecting an article so it is not available for social sharing.
  • Adding section names if a folio has been divided into sections.
