Tired of waiting for LION Magazine in the mail each month? There’s a whole new way to get your association news, and it’s waiting for you—online. Come the first of each month, the digital edition of LION Magazine is just a mouse-click away, along with all of the features that make it a top-notch digital magazine. Following is a basic introduction to the digital edition of LION Magazine, along with an explanation of some its features. The Basics: Long gone are the days of getting just a sample of the material from the magazine online. The digital LION is an exact digital replica of the ink-andpaper version—just with more fun and features. It’s accessible via the Lions Clubs International Web site under the “News and Events” section. Simply click “LION Magazine,” then click the cover to launch it in a separate window. Click on a story to zoom in and read the text. The Features: The navigation bar at the top of the page lets users perform a multitude of tasks. Arrows in the middle of the navigation bar turn the pages, which are displayed in the text box. The file-folder icon lets users access archived editions (also available on the “Past Issues” page of the Web site), while the multicolored square icon allows users a look at thumbnail image previews of each page of the magazine to help locate a specific page. The “Table of Contents” and “Advertiser” icons allow users to click through to a specific story, magazine section or advertisement by name. The Extras: If you’re comfortable with the basics of navigating the digital edition, it’s time to explore some of the extras. The right-hand side of the navigation bar is home to the “Print” feature for printing a specific magazine page, while the “Search” icon allows users to search for a specific topic in the issue. Users can also send friends links to specific stories in the digital magazine via e-mail using the “Share” feature, while the “PDF” icon allows users to download the digital edition as an Adobe PDF file. As a last resort, the help button gives simple navigation tips for getting the most out of the digital magazine.
