Opening from PDF

Postby reenerp » October 22nd, 2014, 4:08 pm

I am new to this software...
I needed to email my brochure to a friend for proofing. I had to save it as a PDF to do so and now I cannot open my project for editing. If I have to start over from scratch I am going to bust a......whatever.
How do I save my project so that I can email it to others for editing.
Thanks

Hi

Swift Publisher cannot edit PDF files. If you add a PDF to a Swift Publisher document, it will behave as an image.

To save your project for further editing, you need to use the native Swift Publisher format *.spub. Obviously, the other person also need to use Swift Publisher to open it.

Your original SP file should be intact wherever you saved it to - it will be a .spub file. You can't edit a pdf output from SP (in SP at least). As Nic has said, you will have to send your friend the .spub file to open in SP, or he could mark up the pdf in something like Preview or Skitch and send it back to you.
