Today, one of the biggest challenges in eMagazines to ensure the demanding magazine experience in different screen-sized devices, taking advantage of the digital technology benefits has given. In contrast to the traditional paper-based magazine with an electronic device the font and screen size dynamically changes and this is a big challenge for the design of an appropriate layout.
My thesis aims to develop a module which is integrated in the eMagazine framework, the module capable to optimally place different shaped formations which are composed of a picture and a text for any particular screen size. Solving this task is closely related to packing problems. Therefore, I discuss the different parts of the packaging problems and sub-problems that arise during their solution. An important packing problem is the strip packing problem, which fits to the thesis topic.
To solve the above problems, various solving methods I present, and then discuss the operation of the module which I made, and show the details of implementations. The completed module from the given shapes can make a layout for any device.
