Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

There are three file types that can be exported:

As a movie

The current in memory file will be saved to disk in the  Jill movie format using a name of your choice. If the file already exists you will be given the option of replacing the existing file or choosing a new name. The file saved will automatically have the default extension of '.mve'.

 

The movie file cannot be used by any other programs other than  Jill. This format of file is used to maintain the security of your data. These file types are distributed with the movie shows and can only be used by that show. Use the  Jill [movie show wizard] to produce a movie show with your movie files.

 

You cannot produce a movie show without some movie files, produced using this option. It is recommended you always save your movie files in the one folder for easy management of movie shows.

 

As HTML

The current in memory file will be saved to disk in HTML file format using a name of your choice. If the file already exists you will be given the option of replacing the existing file or choosing a new name. The file saved will automatically have the default extension of '.htm'. You will have the option of loading the file into your browser. After choosing a file name for the file, you will be presented with various options for tailoring your file.

 

As a Word document

The current in memory file will be saved to disk in Microsoft Word document file format using a name of your choice. If the file already exists you will be given the option of replacing the existing file or choosing a new name. The file saved will automatically have the default extension of '.doc'. You will have the option of loading the file into Microsoft Word for editing and printing.  After choosing a file name for the file, you will be presented with various options for tailoring your file.
