New publish profile format

New in Animate CC 2015.2 | August 2016

When Animate CC introduced the ability to create templates, animators created custom templates for web advertisements and generic web content with its in-built publish profile settings. Due to inherent limitations, animators were unable to share their templates with their publish profile settings and the templates were shared separately or used a .fla as a template instead.

From this release, Animate CC introduces support for. APR file format that lets you bundle the canvas publish template along with its publish profile settings. Going forward, any new asset linked to a publish profile is bundled and shared as well.

For more information, see Specify publish settings.
