what are the pro's and con's of the different formats?
would pdf's make for a smaller size download? do all support interactivity? video? audio? hyperlinks?
thanks for any help!
PDF is smaller and the text is sharper, even when zoomed in.
Files are smaller but there is no support for it on the desktop viewer nor on Android or Kindle Fire.
If you use that format on pages with interactivity, the interactive portions will still be rasterized.
Mixing and matching formats seems impossible when your importing multiple articles to a folio. My average folio contains around 40 articles in both orientations. I generally add a batch to the folio using "import multiple articles", however you loose the option to assign formats, which I can understand but it seems impossible to change the format once imported in into the builder. Seems like the only way to mix and match is to import each orientation sepeartly and for me thats over 80 imports I'd have to do to take advantage of this.
Oh yes, i need this too!

Interesting, and i can't agree - PDF is according to our experience slower than JPG and we have issues with overlays.
Just tested it again just now and really would like to know more about this "much slower". Only issue which i can see is with long articles with smooth scrolling.
We tested JPEG because we are looking for best size/quality/performance. But seems that JPEG have no issues, it's fast (iPad 1) and small. Size simillar to PDF, cca 20 % smaller then PNG, and working MUCH better then PDF. PDF is nightmare (absenting support elsewhere then in iOS reader - desktop, Android, folio producer on web...).
