Our PDF to Flipbook convertor can handle any size of PDF document from Letter to Tabloid, portrait or landscape. Including processing single and double page spreads. However you should click here to read our recommendations.
 

Q. What do all the buttons do when viewing the Flipbook

You can find that out here.
 

Q. Can I download the Flipbook files to host on my own server or put them onto a CD.

The Flipbook files are tightly integrated into our system to track the number of people viewing the Flipbook and number of times people click on the links. Therefore the files have to be hosted on our server.

However you can display your Flipbook in a page on your own website. Just see the Html Code examples that are available when you upload a PDF. You viewers never have to leave your website.
 

Q. I have updated my PDF. How can I replace my current Flipbook with the new version.

You cannot replace individual pages in a Flipbook and only Flipdocs Pro subscribers can replace a complete Flipbook. If you use the "Pay as Go" plan and you want to create a Flipbook with your updated PDF then you have to upload it as you did originally and pay the usual conversion charge
 

Q. I want to upgrade my account to the Flipdocs Pro Plan. Can my previous Flipbook purchases be credited to the Flipdocs Pro fee.

Purchases made within the previous 28 days can be used as credits against the Flipdocs Pro Plan. If this applies to you then please contact sales@flipdocs.com to claim the credits
 

Q. How do I link to a specific page within my Flipbook

Add &P=x to the end of the url to your Flipbook where x = the page number you want to link to.

ie: http://www.flipdocs.com/showbook.aspx?ID=10000043_452238&P=10

Q. I am a Pro Subscriber but my Flipbook still shows the "DEMO" message

We never automatically “activate” Flipbooks even if the user is a Pro subscriber. This is because many of our users upload several different versions of their publications until they get the one the want to keep. The unwanted Flipbooks get automatically deleted after 5 days, therefore keeping their account clear of unwanted Flipbooks 

When you create a Flipbook, if you are happy with it and want to keep it then you need to click on the “Activate” button
