:roll:
So thats 3 version of some articles I will have (Original/Anthology/eMag) as I will have to buy it (I am a compulsive).

Good news for those who don't have the early issues.

Any thoughts of a discount for subscribers :wink:

Looks excellent. But since I have all the issues i want to know a couple of things to see if a purchase will be worthwhile:

1 Is the text searchable? (ah, I guess so, after reading the first post for the third time)
2 Resolution: screenresolution (72 dpi), or higher? (for printing)
3 Were the original Quark ( issues 1 - 18 ) and InDesign ( 19-30 ) used to export these pdf's?

I guess it doesn't contain my Def Tribute to Zzap or the Sinclair User Tribute and other 'extras' (or imagine/dream the 'missing' issue 19 of Live Publishing)?

Ta!

Seeing as how I sold some of my individual copies of the mag for as much as twenty quid each I think it seems like something of a bargain. I got rid of my mags before I moved and now I can get thirty issues for a very reasonable price. :D

Very tempting to get as it'll hold everything in one place.

Indeed... can someone tell us? If it is - buying right away. If not - what a shame.

If the mags have been rendered as standard PDFs, the text should be searchable. If they're been rendered as big ol' flat images, it won't be. Hopefully, someone from Imagine will confirm, because that'd be a reason for me to pick one up, too, seeing as it'd make back-issue research a hell of a lot less hassle.

Every word is searchable. You won't believe how many Matthew Smith referances there are...

Looks nice! I have every issue from 4-38 (excluding 23 - damn postman), but I'd be interested in having them in this format too.
