    • Fixed layout ?
      Fixed-layout ebooks retain the layout and typography of the original document. Therefore, they are very suitable for comic books and recipe books, for example, and can sometimes include enhanced or interactive content. Note that ebooks in the fixed layout EPUB format are fully supported by Cantook Station Web Reader and Adobe Digital Editions. However, they are incompatible with e-readers and reading applications, and do not adapt to screen size, making them difficult to read on devices with smaller screens.
