    Fixed Layout?

    What is fixed layout?

    A fixed layout document has a predetermined arrangement and positioning of elements on the page. The layout remains consistent and does not change based on factors such as screen size, device orientation, or user preferences. Fixed layout documents are used in formats like PDF (Portable Document Format) to ensure that the document’s appearance remains the same across different devices and platforms.

    Reflowable ePUB:

    What is Reflowable ePUB?

    A reflowable ePub layout allows the content to adapt and reflow based on the size of the screen or the preferences of the reader. ePub (electronic publication) is a widely used format for eBooks, and the reflowable layout is one of its key features.
    In a reflowable ePub document, the text, images, and other elements are set to flow dynamically, adjusting to the dimensions of the reading device or the user’s settings. Readers can change the font size, adjust margins, and even choose different fonts in reflowable ePub documents.

    Adaptability to Different Devices

This makes it well- suited for a wide range of devices, including smartphones, tablets, eReaders, and desktop computers. Fixed layout, on the other hand, may not display optimally on all devices, especially those with smaller screens.

    User Customization

    You can customize the reading experience in reflowable ePub documents. You have the flexibility to adjust font size, choose different fonts, and change margins according to your preferences. Fixed layout, with its predetermined design, doesn’t offer the same level of user customization.


    Reflowable ePub is often more accessible to readers with visual impairments. The ability to adjust text size and use screen-reading tools makes it easier for individuals with different needs to consume the content. Fixed layout, with its rigid structure, may present challenges for accessibility.

    Text Search and Highlighting

    Reflowable ePub allows users to search for specific text and highlight content, enhancing the overall reading experience. While some fixed layout formats may support these features, reflowable formats generally provide more consistent and user-friendly text search and highlighting capabilities.

    Cost and Production Time

    Creating reflowable ePub documents can be more cost-effective and efficient compared to designing fixed layout content. Fixed layout often requires more meticulous design work and testing to ensure consistent presentation across different devices.
