Publishing a Document

Content Mapper allows authors to write content once, and publish it many times for paper or online viewing. You can choose to publish to PDF, DocX, HTML, and more. And your content always saves as valid XML.

Content Mapper promotes multiple output formats. Content Mapper has two options of publishing:

Publication Wizard

The Publication Wizard allows you to create beautiful PDF, XPS, or DocX documents, customized to your exact needs. You can easily format the headers and footers, cover page, watermarks, and more according to Word styles and themes. You can generate an Index, Table of Contents, and Cover Page. Save your favorite styles as a Standard Output for one click publishing. View the screenshots below to see all the ways you can customize your published document.
