Macromedia has developed software to help users convert printable files into electronic documents.
Flashpaper 2 is included with Contribute 3 Windows and Mac OS X and is a component of the new Macromedia Web Publishing System. Single licences of Flashpaper 2 will also be available as a standalone product for Windows.
The software aims to create documents that can open directly in web browsers in less than a second, the company claimed.
Flashpaper 2 aims to enable one-click generation of web-friendly Flash documents that are publishable using web-editing tools including Macromedia Contribute, Dreamweaver or any HTML editor. This new version aims to create Flash documents with integrated support for text search and selection, hyperlinks and bookmarks.
Flashpaper 2 is designed to integrate with all Microsoft Office products on Windows to enable intuitive creation of Flash and PDFs from a simple in-product menu. Flashpaper 2 documents can be integrated into any existing website, Flash project, Macromedia Breeze presentation or Macromedia Breeze Live meeting, the company said.
