Branch Newsletters – working with ISSUU

img_issuu-website

In order to make publishing newsletters easier for the communications folks, we created a profile on ISSUU, which will allow you to view your newsletter on your computer without needing special software.

The link for our ISSUU site is
http://issuu.com/rv-aauw

Once you’re on the site, you will see the issues of the AAUW-RV Gazette as well as past issues of The Roanoke Valley View. To view an issue, click on the image or the title of the newsletter.

You will see the screen below:

  1. the current page of the newsletter
  2. the navigation button to move to the next pageimg_issuu-zoom
  3. a zoom slider that will let you magnify the page to make reading more comfortable
  4. the current page number and the total number of pages in the newsletterimg_issuu-slider
  5. a search feature (this sometimes doesn’t work as well as it should)
  6. see thumbnails of all the pages so you can scroll to the page that you want. This button is active when the full page is in the view, and deactivates when you zoom in.
  7. sets the view to one page only (the newsletter defaults to two page spread)
  8. opens the newsletter to full screen size. Press Esc on your keyboard, or hit the button again to bring it back to smaller size.

By clicking Share, you can email the newsletter to a friend or share the newsletter on your Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter account.
