How to add a Skin to my flipbook?

The appearance of your flipbook depends on what we call the Skin. A Skin is a collection of all the graphical elements (icons, background images, etc.), which, together, make up the User Interface for your flipbooks.

To change your Skin, please do the following:

    1. Open your Flipbooks page 
    2. Find the flipbook to which you would like to apply the Skin in the My flipbooks list.
    3. Hover over the flipbook and click on it to open the flipbook's page.
    4. Click on the Customize option to the right to access the Customize dialogue.
    5. Click Skin.
    6. Select the Skin that best suits your content and click OK.
    7. Click Save at the top of the page to save the changes.
