How full looseleaf publishing works

Full looseleaf publishing works by allocating the document content to one or more document leaves. When the document is modified, TopLeaf compares the content of each leaf with the content of the same leaf in the previous release. Any leaf containing changed content is marked for inclusion in the release. It is a requirement of full looseleaf publishing that all partition document content is contained within a single flattened document file. With the exception of external images, no content can be referenced from an external file.
