method for reserving space or video & other media

Recommended Posts

What is the preferred method for reserving page space for video and other media? As Publisher has no facility for inserting various forms of media content such as Vimeo, YouTube, or media players, for modern online document publication, so; therefore space needs to be reserved and replaceable after rendering to PDF. Should a picture frame rectangle or  just a rectangle (or another shape) be used for PDF editing?

I assume this depends on the software that you want to use to replace the content. Example: if the other software is capable of replacing a placeholder rectangle or a placeholder image with a video then I'd go for that.

I find your idea to use placeholders for videos interesting as long as APub does not have this functionality. But without knowing the workflow it's a bit poking in the dark ;)

Used place holders. Edited with Soda PDF, Flip PDF Pro, PagePlus X9 and Acrobat. All worked well replacing the Placeholder. PagePlus still works best because it is still just a one-step solution.  Just too bad Serif just didn't fix the quirks in PP. I'll keep working on APub beta prototype and see where it goes.

Good to know. This might also be a valuable information for other who are looking into this.

Cheers,
