# Publishing Overview

Penflip projects can be converted and downloaded with a single click, turning a collection of text files into a beautiful compilation.

You can download any project you have access to, including both public and private projects, by clicking **Download** from the project page.

### Export formats

The following formats are currently supported: `.pdf`, `.docx`, `.epub`, `html`, and `plain text`. You can also download the full source of a project, which includes all project files and folders unaltered.

### Exclude files from publishing

Sometimes you may want to exclude a specific file from the published compilation - for example, an unfinished chapter, or maybe a notes file. To exclude a file, simply click the eye icon beside the filename in the Penflip editor. Hidden files can be edited, but will not be displayed outside the editor.

### Downloading alternate versions

By default, the master version of a project is compiled when downloading, but you can download alternate and past versions. To do this, view any [version or tag](https://www.penflip.com/Penflip/help/blob/loren/getting-started/versions.md) for a given project by selecting accordingly from the project page, as seen in this screenshot:


Clicking **Download** while viewing a particular version or tag will compile and download the project with the current selection. If you tag your releases (_v1_, _v1.5_, etc), you can download those past releases at any point in time.
