Flip Books   What are they?

 

Flip  Books are a way of displaying your documents on your website in an easy- to-read format. Normally used to display fully hyper-linked pdfs in a more accessible way, they can also be used for documents created in other formats such as Word or PowerPoint.


Why should I display my website documents as flip books?






Can I download a Flip book?


We are often asked if the flip book can be downloaded in it’s original document form. The set up for this is as follows:


  1. A (normally high printing resolution) copy of the document (normally a pdf) is placed on your web server for download. The location for this is maintained as fixed and usually is common to all the documents you have available (i.e. all the files are in the same folder).
  2. You supply the folder URL (the download link) to us and when the flip book is created (usually at a lower resolution to make a smaller file), we add this URL to the book set up which introduces a download button.
  3. When a "reader" wishes to download he clicks the button which will start the download of the high res file from the server.
  4. Security levels can be introduced either in the flip book or in the document if required.


Another, more restrictive, option for download (which can be explained in the help file) is to use the "print" option and print to file rather than to a hard copy, although this option limits the resolution to the quality option of the flip book. If the computer has a pdf printer installed then a local pdf can be produced directly.
