For background content, each page is rendered in the folio size dimensions at 72 ppi. Overlays are handled differently, but 72 effective ppi is still the key value.
so if this is true, inDesign is limiting us to what we can export?
so there should be no real difference in image quality from ipad2 to ipad3?
I suppose you could say that InDesign is limiting what you can export if you want to put it that way. But if you have a cover image that's 2048x1536 in 72 ppi on the iPad 3, it looks great. Including a 2048x1536 in 300 ppi wouldn't look significantly better (unless you zoom way in in a PDF article), and it would increase the folio size dramatically.

ahh right! I see your point for sure, that's what we managed to crack through a bit of testing,
I was wondering if you knew if there were any plans to implement more control in the folio builder panel regarding the way MSO's and interactivity are exported, it became apparent that the folio builder exports for example the MSO's as PNG images, but these add a lot of weight to the end folio, so what we tried was making the images inside the MSO very low quality PNG's, so that the builder wouldn't have to recompress them and add weight, but it still did - is there anyway around this?
Cheers ( I hope that makes sense )
