FlippingBook Online Update: Meet Our New Reimagined Publication

For more than a year, we’ve worked hard on reinventing the technology behind FlippingBook publication. Because we always strive to give you and your clients the ultimate reading experience online.

And finally, our new development is here! A reimagined FlippingBook publication that is even more powerful, innovative, with a fresh streamlined look, and full of digital perks. 

We’re super excited to tell you all about it, so read on to learn more or watch our video to discover what's new in FlippingBook.


What’s New

#1 Selectable text

With this new feature your readers’ experience skyrockets to a whole new level. Now, when your clients are looking through your flipbooks, they can select any text they find important like they would do on any website, copy it in one click, and then share it with their colleagues—for example, via email or messengers. 

What’s more, if a client has a question about an item in your brochure or catalog, they can choose to send you a link to the whole page with the text they selected. The item will be highlighted, so you can discuss it in detail and answer the client's questions. This makes your communication with clients easier and faster giving you a competitive edge. 

A few things you should know about Text Selection:

  • You can turn it off for private documents.
  • If Download is disabled in your existing flipbook, then Text Selection is off too by default. But you can turn it on yourself.
  • All flipbooks created on or after April 4th have access to Text Selection. We're converting the rest of your flipbooks, but it'll take some time.
  • Tip: if you want access to Text Selection sooner, simply reupload the PDFs in your older flipbooks.


#2 Empowered publication

How to achieve that authentic appearance with digital content? Look no further! Our new publication has everything to create an unrivaled immersive experience of reading a real print copy. Let’s get right to it, shall we?

  • State-of-the-art technology: we’ve optimized the speed, memory usage, and image compression of your publications so that now they open and load up to 30% faster.
  • Page thickness: exactly as in a physical copy, your clients can jump to any page of your flipbook—just by clicking on a tooltip. And they can always see how many pages they’ve read already.
  • Shadows and gradients: we’ve carried out research on how the shadows look in real books and implemented our knowledge in creating graphics for your flipbooks. The result is that the shadows and gradients on the pages of your publications have become even more subtle and authentic.
  • Hardcover: if you create digital books or textbooks for your audience, you can now set a well-structured hardcover with proper binding.
  • Flip corner and flip animation: the flipping effect in your publication has become smoother, faster, and more responsive, making every page aesthetically pleasant to read.

#3 Adjustable logo

Sometimes, if your logo was too large, it could be covered when you opened your flipbook. We’ve fixed this issue and your logo will look even better.

Now your clients will clearly see the logo at all times—no matter the size. It’s automatically adjusted to fit right into your publication whether it’s opened or closed. And if you want to display your content on a website, the logo will be visible in embeds of any size. Creating brand awareness and authenticity with your flipbooks has never been easier.


Your publications already have the rebranded look and the new technology. Go ahead and see for yourself in your account.
