www.3dissue.com


Setting up your 3D Issue 6.1 software

• Installation Once you have downloaded the 3D Issue installer. Please double click on the file to start the installation process. Once you have navigated through the installation process and clicked finished. 3D Issue will launch automatically.

• Activation Once the installation is complete and the software launches you will be asked to enter in your username and password. This information will have been forwarded to the email address that you entered when you were downloading the software from our site. This information must be entered at this stage in order to activate your fully functional 30 day trial. Once you enter this information and click “Sign in”, your 30 day fully functional trial version will be ready to start.


Set up Profile

The last step to completing the setup is to add your profile. The profile section allows you to customise the magazine to suit your brand. Here you can add your company logo, copyrighting text and SEO information. HOWEVER, the most important data that needs to be entered at this stage is the list of domains that you wish to publish your digital editions to. While the trial version also allows you to temporarily publish your magazines to our test site, our software allows you to host your digital editions on your own site. In order to activate this feature, you must insert the URL of that domain so our server knows that the magazines are running on an authorised URL. If the domain is not added then the publications will not run. All you need to do is add the route domain of your URL. For example : http://www.acmepublishing.com By adding this domain, any publication that you add to any location on that website will run without any issue. To complete this setup, Click on the “Create New Issue” tab. This will prompt you to add a PDF for a publication that you want to convert. Once you have added the PDF, click on the OK button and you will be taken to the “Content” tab. On the left hand panel in this tab you will find the “Profile section”. Click on the “edit” button. This will prompt the profile dialog window to open. Here you can edit all settings relating to your template and profile such as your copyright text, logos and domains. On the third step you will be asked to enter the domains that you wish to include. Please enter the URLs of all sites that you plan to host the digital editions on. Please note this only has to be done once. You will not have to repeat this step each time.

Enable Stats

3D Issue allows you to integrate your digital editions with your Google Analytics and get live stat reports on how your audience are interacting with your digital editions. In order to activate this feature all you have to do is enter in the Google Analytics ID that is associated with each domain that you are adding into the Profile dialog box. Once you have entered this value, that’s it. The statistics of every interaction from every reader will be recorded and posted to your Google Analytics account for your analysis.
