Printing HTML5 publications

Product: FlippingBook Publisher

When you print your flipbook (or part of it), you want it to look great. HTML5 is a technology that is designed for web pages, not to print documents. When it comes to printing, no document type beats PDF, so that's what we use for printing.

If you use Google Chrome or Safari on Mac, then your browser will immediately ‘catch’ the downloaded PDF and bring up the system print window. Unfortunately, other browsers don’t support this function (yet). In this case, after pressing the print button, the PDF is downloaded instead. You will then have to open the PDF in the Downloads folder and print it manually.

To print your publication in Google Chrome or Safari on Mac:

  • click the Print button in your Publication

Most browsers download your PDF to your standard ‘Downloads’ folder, but the way in which they do that may vary. If you have any problems in downloading or finding the file, please refer to your browser's help-information. The links below may be helpful:



I am using Chrome but I don’t see the print dialog

Chrome has a setting that can be set to download files directly, bypassing the printing dialog. You can change it as follows:

  1. Open Chrome’s options menu by pressing on the icon with three vertically arranged dots, next to the address bar
  2. Choose Settings
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click Advanced
  4. In the Privacy and Security section choose Content settings
