To begin our project, let's create a folder on the desktop called myFolio. Now if you already have InDesign files on your hard-drive, you can use those instead of working from the desktop here. But for those of you following along with the exercise files, create the folder on the desktop. Then what we're going to do is come into the Folio files in the exercise files, this is in folder A. What we're going to do is copy all four of these folders here into the myFolio folder we just created on the desktop. Now what's inside of these? Inside of Cover, we have a horizontal and vertical version of the Cover.
Under Holiday Sales, we have the horizontal and vertical version of the sales, and you notice each one of these has an icon as well. This is the icon that shows up in the table of contents and then under Interactive Map, we just have the simple icon here. So now let's come back to the exercise files, and what we're going to do now is add-in the HTML5 projects. So inside of Bar Chart, let's select the index, the includes, and the images, let's copy all of these over into Holiday Sales, let's come back to Interactive Map.
Let's grab index, includes, and images for the Interactive Map, and drag these into the Interactive Map folder. Now some of the later versions of the Digital Publishing Suite don't require you to be so specific with where all of your files are, but I like to keep every one of my articles or stacks in an individual folder. So here's Cover, Holiday Sales, and the Interactive Map, and then Links has all of the graphics that each one of the InDesign files in Folder 1 and 2 are actually linking to. So now that we have all of our files in place, in the next movie, we'll start by creating the web overlay in the Holiday Sales file.
