Digital Hub Updates

The Sample Generator

Select a limited number of paragraph styles from your sam files in a project and create sample outputs. This can be used to help create print or electronic design samples or to isolate particular elements for testing or transmittal. For complete documentation of this new feature, click here. A suggested procedure can be accessed here.

New Project Creation Process

Creating a new project now takes place in the metadata tab of the project page. Users are given a guided tour of the page and asked to enter metadata. You can use the guided walk-through on the page and exit it at any time.

Extended Metadata for Projects

Hub projects can now have many new types of metadata. These new fields are not required. The fields include Additional Descriptive Data (Languages, Description, Publication Date, and DOI) and Additional Titles (Subtitle, Short Title, Collection Title, Extended Title, and Edition Title). This information will be applied to ePub 3 files.

Unicode Normalization

All sam, ScML, and HTML output from the Hub will have its Unicode characters normalized. This means that combining characters will be converted into a single character wherever a known combined character exists. This added cleanup will not cause any observable difference in output for most users.
