What is Web-enhanced PDF? 

If you're publishing reference or non-fiction and spending money on indexes and high quality production, you should consider WE-PDF. As more and more users read these online or on devices, they will need the navigation tools that these links provide. It's false economy to create a good index and then to make it useless in a digital environment for a sake of a few more dollars. Every index entry and every TOC page number is linked to its target. No editorial judgment required; once the index is produced in print the links will be added in the UPDF.


The W-E PDF makes it possible for every publisher, regardless of size, to maximize revenue streams and reach every major distribution channel with one simple and economical format. For a modest per-title fee, a Universal PDF offers a quick return on investment and immediately opens up new revenue streams with all distributors.
