EBooksWriter, VisualVision's professional software for creating ebooks, manuals, interactive guides, and small catalogues, is now at version 2004. The visual interface is intended to allow users to insert backgrounds, images, create frames, mouse over sensitive images and hot spots, show popup windows, and more without writing code. The audio and video features have been improved, and so has the full text search engine that is automatically inserted within each work. The final user can perform searches by using Boolean operators.
Users can still define links visually, by choosing from click and browse active preview dialogs. One new link in the Gold edition provides the ability to add items to the shopping cart: the resulting order form can be printed, faxed, or sent by email. The template management has been improved, as well as the "embedded files" management, the automatic creation of a hyperlinked table of contents, and the management of the tree-view table of contents. EBooksWriter runs under Windows 95/98/Me/NT4/2000/XP/2003 and is available for $129. A free LITE edition (without time limits) is available for download.
