Enjoying your summer holidays?

While some of us have been in the sun, our engineers have been working hard on the iPad version of the new AutoDraw feature, and it should be out by the end of this month, in time for the new school year. Have you tried it in Book Creator for Chrome yet?

Our recent webinar had an in-depth look at all the features that were released. If you missed it, catch up with the archive below.

We have some more webinars coming up in August. Click on the link to register:
