Interactive elements in the ePaper: Does the ePaper contain interactive elements such as links to further information, embedded videos or image galleries?

Yes, the ePaper can contain interactive elements such as links to further information, embedded videos and image galleries. If you add multimedia content to your ePaper, it will be available to your readers in the frontend. This way, your readers benefit from an enhanced and richer reading experience.

Offline availability of the ePaper: Is the ePaper also available offline?

An active internet connection is required to read the ePaper. It is not possible to save issues or specific articles offline for later access. However, you can offer your readers an optional PDF download function so that they can read the content offline. Please bear in mind that the PDF files can be redistributed.

Personalization of content in the ePaper: Does the ePaper offer functions for personalizing content based on readers' interests?

The ePaper does not currently offer these functions. However, we are continuously working on the further development of our software and are examining possibilities for integrating personalized content based on the interests of readers, such as recommendations of similar articles or adaptation of the start page based on reading behavior.

Loading times of the ePaper: How quickly does the ePaper load content, especially for large issues with many images or multimedia elements?

The ePaper usually loads content very quickly, even for extensive issues with many images or multimedia elements. However, the loading time can depend on factors such as the number of pages and the complexity of the multimedia content. Basically, the more multimedia elements are embedded, the longer the loading time can be. Nevertheless, we strive for a fast loading time on different devices and network connections to ensure a smooth user experience.
