    Sorry Bob - i always used and managed DPS with Professional edition (only multifolio).

    So i never seen .folio file - how to save/obtain .folio file?

    Single folio are only for Single Edition? Why i have to use it?

    There are not in the documentation?

     

    Many thanks!

    You don't need to worry about .folio files. Bob was just pointing to an announcement we made today that isn't relevant to day-to-day DPS designers.

    Whenever you create a folio, you create a set of .folio files. It's the DPS file format.

    Just to add to Bob's point, you don't need to see or access .folio files directly in DPS. Just make your content using Folio Builder Panel and publish it using Folio Producer. We handle moving stuff around automatically for you, there is no reason to access or copy the files directly yourself.

    This announement means that i can develop my own viewer and no longer need to buy an DPS licensing?  I can create a .folio and then use my own viewer to make it public?

     

    when will this information be available?

     

    Thank you.

     

    Just one more question. is still available the DPS licensing with agency rights?

    Yes, you could take the folio spec and implement your own viewer for .folio files. It is not a small undertaking though Chances are the costs of doing that would vastly exceed the costs of using our very fine viewers for iOS, Android (Feb!) and Windows.

     

    I don't know the answer to your other two questions, sorry!
