NEW: Make flipbooks from scratch or edit your PDFs

Jani / News and updates / July 24th, 2014 / 22 Comments »

Starting today, we have new features for you in FlipSnack. You can create every page of your flipbook right within our content editor (start from scratch) or you can edit your existing PDF by adding elements on it.

How to use the new content editor

To access the new editor go to flipsnack.com, click  “create from scratch” in menu. You can also upload the PDF or JPG and then add PDF content by clicking “Edit content” after upload.

Inside the new content editor you will find options to create and delete pages and add lots of elements on them: texts, images, videos, links, audio, shopping buttons, social media buttons and more.
To add an element to a page you need to select the page and drag and drop the desired item on it. Next, click Edit and customize your added item.

Here  are some pictures that have all the explanations needed:

We think the content editor is so much fun! Here’s a flipbook made from scratch in FlipSnack:

Now go to FlipSnack and make a flipbook yourself!

  5. Angeles says:

    Is it possible to add just a pdg page to a documente that has already been published? I can see I can delete a page but can it be replaced for a new one?

  6. Jani says:

    Yes, now you can add pages to the published PDF! Just go to “edit content” and then click “Add page”.

  7. Kelly says:

    Question: how does this save and it is then in my files or is it access via flipsnack.com ?

  8. Jani says:

    @kathy, after you log in, you will see your flipbook in “My FlipSnack”

  9. Nahlah says:

    is it completely free? Can I use it for multiple books?

  10. Jani says:

    Hi Nahlah, you can use it for free, but with limitations such as watermark, 15 pages/flipbook and 1 GB storage. Visit the “premium” page to see a comparison for all our plans: http://www.flipsnack.com/go-premium.html

    Hi,

    we currently host our magazines on flipsnack, we are in the process of trying to my the content dynamic, however there are some issues with the edit content function.

    For example, if we migrate the pdf in with links, and some of these links are email links, Flipsnack will ignore them and try and open a page called “mailto:example@example.com” we tried doing it this way because the mail button link function literally does not shrink down enough over the email links in our magazine, also it has this white mail icon over it, blocking out some of the text. similarly all of the artwork for social media is aready in there, however when you create a social media hotspot, it hangs a logo over the logo…which again is not needed. I understand this feature has just been released, but if its being aimed at people like us who want to display online magazines, it is not ideal at all, very difficult to use and not very flexible unless you are creating the content from scratch.

  12. Jani says:

    Hi Mike, thank you for the feedback!
    We will have the technical team work on the email link issues. Please contact our support team (live chat) and ask them to check the flipbook (they will probably need to check the PDF as well) to see why our reader interprets the email links as web links.

    The social media buttons are indeed for if you create content from scratch. If you already have social buttons and you only want to add the link you should use the outline: http://screencast.com/t/niyhltdh

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    I like the layouts but can you change the background colour?

    Thanks
    Elinor

  14. Jani says:

    Hi Elinor! Yes, you can change the background. It can be any color, a texture, an image or you can set it to be transparent.

  15. Justine Syen says:

    Can is be a vertical flip book? I want my portfolio to be like a calendar rather than a book.

  16. Jani says:

    Hi Justine,
    That isn’t possible, sorry!

  17. Stephen says:

    Finally. One of the most curious presentation creator. I really enjoy it.

  18. monique says:

    Hi There
    Is it possible to have the flipbook once created off line on our desktop for a keepsake? Or is it only possible to host it on your web site?
    Cheers M

  19. Jani says:

    Hi Monique, if you have a premium subscription, you can download it.

  20. juli says:

    is it possible to print a page from FlipSnack?

  21. Jani says:

    Hi Juli, unfortunately it isn’t possible…yet. It’s on our to-do list though, so stay connected!

    i like it.
    Fantastic option to edit the pdf’s. There are many great online services to publish/edit your own pdf’s online.
