Export works differently for App Studio issues than it does for other formats. Rather than creating a single local exported issue file on your hard disk, you upload the exported articles that make up an issue to the App Studio Publishing Portal. Once an article has been uploaded to the server, you can preview it on the App Studio Publishing Portal and in your copy of App Studio Issue Previewer. Once the content is final, you can serve it to your customers directly from the App Studio Publishing Portal.
Before you can export and upload an App Studio article, you must have an account on the App Studio Publishing Portal. For more information, see " Understanding the App Studio Publishing Portal " and " Creating an App Studio issue ."
