FlippingBook Publisher 2019
Jun 4, 2019
We’ve made FlippingBook publications more accessible for people with disabilities. Now you can make an accessible version of the PDF that will be available for download from your publication. So your clients are now able to use a screen reader to navigate around a publication and download the accessible PDF. They can also use a keyboard to work with the publication’s interface. This makes your publication even more comfortable to use by a wider audience.
You can now upload a video to YouTube, Vimeo, or Wistia, apply any viewing restrictions, and then embed it into your publication. So your clients will have to enter a password or log in to their accounts to see your video in the publication. This way, you can be sure that your videos will be available only to the right audience.
Now you can set a custom preview for a video – choose a preview from the video itself or upload your own image.
When you zoom in on a publication with the conversion profile set to Best Quality, it looks cleaner in the latest versions of Microsoft Edge.
Search in a publication became more comfortable – you can now see how many times a word you were searching for appears on each page.
Table of contents in a publication has become even more intuitive to use.
We’ve made many small improvements in the Content Editor so it has become more convenient to work with.
Fixed: Rarely when a self-hosted publication, where “Searchable on Google” was disabled, was opened in a new tab, its title wasn’t displayed in a browser.
Fixed: The Content Editor could sometimes freeze when you worked with a certain configuration of the pages.
Fixed: In some cases you got an error when switching a video to the fullscreen mode in a publication.
You can now control where the publications hosted on FlippingBook Cloud and on your server can be embedded and make them available only on restricted domains. This can be very helpful if you want your brochures or manuals to be accessed on specific websites or web pages and nowhere else. If someone tries to publish your document on their own website without your permission, they won’t be able to view it. Restricted domains are available as part of the Business edition.
Publications hosted on your own server can now be protected with password. So even if someone finds a direct link to your document, they won't be able to view it without knowing the password. This way, you can be sure that you have full control over your document security. Password protection is available as part of the Business edition.
Your offline publications can now also be password protected. This feature is available as part of the Business edition.
On FlippingBook Cloud, you can now enable or disable search engine indexing for each publication separately as well as for multiple publications.
You can select several publications on FlippingBook Cloud and change the access mode for all of them at once.
You can save the security settings for your publication by default, and they will be automatically applied to all the future publications. Give the same level of security to each document with default settings: protect with password, restrict domains, enable or disable search engine indexing.
Working in the Content Editor became even more convenient.
The process of saving and loading Templates became more intuitive.
Working with Text captions is now even simpler.
We’ve redesigned how the side panels in FlippingBook Publisher look. Now they are more modern and intuitive to work with.
Uploading publications to FlippingBook Cloud became even faster.
Fixed: Starting from Microsoft Edge ver. 44, fonts in a publication were rendered incorrectly in svg format. Now for Microsoft Edge Version 44 and later versions, the text layer is rendered in png format.
Fixed: With the release of Google Chrome ver. 72 switching to fullscreen from a video in a publication worked incorrectly.
Fixed: Sometimes when you uploaded a publication to FlippingBook Cloud the search in it didn’t work.
Fixed: In some languages, apostrophes and quotation marks were displayed incorrectly.
Fixed: Rarely you could get an error when selecting multiple publications in several different collections on FlippingBook Cloud.
Fixed: Sometimes you got an error in Google Chrome when exiting the full screen mode of your publication.
Meet Templates! Templates allow you to save the settings you need and apply them as the default in future projects. So when you create a publication, it will have all the settings such as logo, skin, and controls from the start. This can be very convenient and time-saving if you create publications with similar branding and design.
You can also save as many Templates as you need without making them default. When you need them, just load them. It can be very useful if you work with different content types, for example, create brochures, catalogs, or reports.
Mobile publications now support logos and skins. This means that your clients will have the same experience with your content everywhere - on a desktop, phone, or tablet.
Now mobile publications support slide mode. So if you choose slide mode for a publication, it will work the same way on desktops and smartphones.
The publication preview mode has become simpler and easier to use. You can easily switch between desktop, phone and tablet mode to see what your publication looks like for various devices, and edit it right away.
We’ve redesigned the menu panel so that all the important controls are right at hand. What’s more, the controls have been given new nice and intuitive icons.
We don’t support Flash anymore. This means that if you want to update an old Flash project, you will have to convert it to HTML5. But don’t worry, FlippingBook Publisher will offer to convert your project to HTML5 when you open it in the new version.
PDFs can now be converted even faster, saving your time and effort.
Fixed: When you worked with media in the Сontent Editor and zoomed the page, sometimes a fatal error would occur.
Fixed: Sometimes when you resaved a project its name became too long.
Fixed: When you uploaded a publication and the original PDF was too complex, you got an “Out of Memory error”. From now on, in such cases, the uploading will continue, but the "Download Full Publication" and "Print Custom Range" options will be disabled.
Meet the all-new FlippingBook mobile publication! 65% of users open your publications on mobile devices, so we’ve completely reimagined the mobile experience with FlippingBook. The new publication has a page flip effect, fresh design, full-fledged two-page mode and improved readability. So your users will enjoy your publications on any device they prefer.
Improved: We’ve made text search more responsive and accurate. Now you will always get correct results, no matter how large your publication is and how fast you change search queries.
Fixed: Sometimes an offline publication for Mac failed to open at first try, but it would have opened after a few attempts. It doesn’t do that anymore.
Fixed: Popup images sometimes didn’t open, especially when placed at the center of a widespread.
FlippingBook Publisher 2.9
Jun 8, 2018
Working with a big number of links on a page in the Content Editor became faster. You can now easily select, edit and move as many links as you need.
We keep improving the upload dialog design to make it even more neat and convenient for you to upload your publications.
Fixed: There were animation glitches in the publications viewed in Google Chrome ver. 67, caused by a bug in Chrome. While Chrome developers intend to fix the problem in the next release, we’ve found a fix, too. So if you experience this issue, please, update your publications. That should help.
Fixed: Sometimes publishing your project to FlippingBook Cloud with an unstable internet connection caused a critical error.
Fixed: Some self-hosted publications showed pages with only a "Something went wrong" message due to missing MIME-type settings.
Apr 28, 2018
Now you can create offline publications from HTML5 projects, and you can do it for both Windows and Mac.
Your publications become even more crisp and clear thanks to new rasterization mode. Images, even high-res images, now always look bright and sharp. Plus, colors and transparent elements are transferred accurately, so your publications look like the original PDF.
Self-hosted publications have a beautiful new preview specially tailored for Facebook that looks great on a news feed.
The publication dialog has a new look: it’s now easier and more intuitive, and you have all the options at hand when uploading your publication.
The groups of properties in FlippingBook Publisher can now be opened and closed in a smoother way.
Fixed: When you created a single page from a wide page or vice versa, it wasn’t reconverted according to the new parameters and didn’t display with the same quality.

You can now add GIF animations to your publications! GIF adding works in the same way as adding videos and popups. It’s time to make your publications even more interactive and illustrative! This feature is available as part of the Business edition.
Wistia integration was added. If you host your videos with Wistia, you can now add them to your publication as easily as with YouTube and Vimeo.
Publication has been given a right-click menu. Right-clicking on the publication page allows the reader to add notes and work with the page, i.e. to print, download or share it (provided you’ve allowed these actions, of course).
Interactive elements on the page have got a new highlight mode. When you open a new page, they are highlighted briefly, as usual. But if you click anywhere on the publication page, all the interactive elements get highlighted and stay that way. Another click on the page hides them. It’s a great way to get a reminder of what’s clickable.
Fixed: Sometimes, a project would fail to save.
Fixed: Fast removal of pages one by one in a project caused a fatal error.
Fixed: Some text captions in a publication couldn’t be edited.
Fixed: Some links extracted from a PDF didn’t work in the mobile version of a publication.

We’ve made auto-connection to SFTP/FTP more stable and reliable when uploading to your own server.
Fixed: In some cases, publication preview mode didn’t work.
Vector texts are supported in HTML5 publications now. That means all the texts in your publications will be crystal clear and readable on any screen and any device.
A publication’s content loads even faster thanks to new dynamic page loading. When opening the publication, you’ll immediately see the content. It may start a bit blurry, but it comes into focus in a few seconds.
Now, the image quality on mobile devices is as good as on desktops.
PDFs are imported almost twice as fast now. Hurray to the time-efficient creation of publications!
Minor fixes and improvements.
FlippingBook Publisher 2.8
Oct 11, 2017
Fixed: Some of the important publication files weren't compressed, so the loading time grew.
Fixed: The Facebook preview didn’t work for self-hosted publications.
The publication used to work slowly in the editing mode. We have fixed this.
Sometimes, the software crashed when it was running for a long time. The reason for this were memory leaks that occurred when a publication’s page reloaded during editing. Fixed this, too!
We have re-arranged the HTML5 publication settings to make publication tuning faster and more intuitive.
New design options for your HTML5 publications have been added! Now you can make panels transparent and set custom colors for text on panels and buttons.
Now you can choose the placement for a background logo - it’s not fixed to the lower right corner anymore.
A “Shadow Depth” setting has been added: you can now control the shadow intensity or remove it from the pages of your publication.
Now you can add a custom description to your publication. It’s a 150 character text that people will see when you share the publication on social media, so be sure to write something exciting there!
We have improved publication’s SEO potential by reworking the indexing mechanism. It has also resulted in a slightly different structure of publication files, but you will only see the difference if you host the publications on your own server.
The print quality has been significantly improved. From now on, it should be flawless: no distortions or odd pages when printing directly from the publication.
“Print” and “Download” have been united into one setting. Now, if you need to protect the publication from unwanted copying, you can do so with one click. However, you can turn both settings on and off independently, if needed.
Fixed: Sometimes, when you re-converted a page, the text layer disappeared.
Fixed: When you replaced an existing page with an image, the publication failed to load.
Fixed: There was a breach allowing you to inject code into the publication URL.

Jun 1, 2017
Now you can convert “Document” and “Photo album” type projects to HTML5. Update your publications to HTML5 and rest assured that your clients can open and enjoy them in any browser.
We added a new page-turning mode: slide. In this mode, your document looks like a presentation with slides, which is very convenient for landscape-oriented documents.
PDFs that don’t contain hidden text convert to HTML5 faster.
We improved common and telephone link detection. Now FlippingBook Publisher detects links containing capital letters, hyphens, and dots better. For telephone numbers, there are fewer false detections, and a greater variety of telephone numbers is supported.
Sometimes the software crashed when extracting images from a PDF. We optimized the extraction process, so this won’t happen again.
Fixed: When running on Parallels, sometimes an “Out of memory” error appeared and crashed the software.
Fixed: When updating a publication to FlippingBook Cloud, the password protection got lost on the way. Sorry. It should be alright now.
Fixed: Some temp files weren’t deleted from the Temp folder, which clogged it up.
Fixed: If you tried to change the skin before the project import was complete, the software crashed.
We’ve added a Flash to HTML5 Converter. Now you can convert your old projects to HTML5 without recreating each publication from scratch (yay!).
Flash and HTML5 projects now each have their own icon and extension. *.p2fp is used for Flash, and *.p2hp for HTML5. Old projects will automatically get a new icon and extension when you open them with the latest version of FlippingBook Publisher.
Embedded publications (on users’ servers) have a new look and better usability on mobile devices.
Another improvement for user-hosted publications: they got a beautiful new preview on Facebook.
IP Anonymization for Google Analytics has been enabled for all publications by default. We’ve done it to make it easier for you to comply with privacy laws and policies, as in some countries and companies IP Anonymization is obligatory.
Now you can set the custom page flip speed for HTML5 publications.
For Right-to-left publications, the interface depends on the viewer’s browser language. So, if your viewer has a Right-to-left-oriented browser, the publication’s interface will comply.
The three-character search minimum in HTML5 publications has been removed.
If your publication has an interactive Table of Contents, it will always follow you as you browse through the document. The part you’re on will be highlighted, so it’s easier for you and your readers to navigate around the document.
The displayed total number of pages on the upper panel of the publication can now be disabled.
Fixed: Publications with pages of different sizes had white stripes.
Fixed: When trying to import a PDF on a 32-bit Windows system, some users got an “Out of memory” exception.

Mar 1, 2017
For offline publications, videos open in a browser now.
Fixed: YouTube video thumbnails didn't load in the Content Editor.
Feb 21, 2017
Fixed: YouTube AS3 API stopped working, so embedded videos in Flash publications also stopped working in all browsers, except for Internet Explorer 11 and Mozilla Firefox. We’ve switched to the new YouTube API and now everything is back to normal. However, because of the new API specifics, the videos won’t work when you edit the publication in Publisher.
YouTube videos in HTML5 publications work just fine.
Dec 22, 2016
Here are the improvements for the newly introduced HTML5 projects.
Localization and Text Captions editing are back. Now the publication interface is available in German, French, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, Russian, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Polish, Norwegian, Finnish, Turkish, Hebrew, and Arabic (and English, of course).

Fixed: The size of the PDF available by clicking on the “Download“ button has increased significantly. Only for publications created with JPEGs instead of PDFs.
Fixed: Working with several projects consumed too much computer memory, which was not freed up.
We have added full HTML5 support. Now you can create HTML5 publications that are better, faster and more web-friendly than Flash ones.
HTML5 is widely supported by a variety of browsers, which improves the customer experience with your publications.
Pages load immediately, and there’s no time lag between opening a document and viewing the content.
A HTML5 publication is more safe in comparison to Flash.
Flash project is still supported. You can create Flash-based publications as well as HTML5 ones with no problem.
Not all features available in Flash-based publications have been added in HTML5 yet. Namely: e-commerce, publication protection features (password, encryption, and domain registration), skin editor, select text, slideshow, and bookmarks. You can still password-protect your publications, if you keep them in FlippingBook Cloud, and customize their design with 24 ready skins, background images and your own color palette.
While editing, a HTML5 publication may seem a bit glitchy, but it works perfectly fine after you upload it online.
XP, Vista, Windows Server 2008 SP2, and Windows Server 2003 SP2 are no longer supported. If you are affected by this change, please contact us to learn about the available options.
