Design Studio main menu

Easier way to find the options and settings you need in the Design Studio.

As you might have noticed already, the header in the Design Studio changed quite a bit and it's now easier for you to find every setting you need. There are 3 tabs on the upper-left side, File, View, and Help. Also in the upper left, you have the option to rename your flipbook at any time while editing. Click on the Flipsnack logo to be taken back to My flipbooks


Let's start with the left side. Each of the tabs opens a drop-down menu when clicked, which reveals different options, as shown below:

The File dropdown menu:
  • New flipbook (opens a new tab, where you can select the size of a new flipbook if you're currently creating it from scratch, or you can upload a PDF for a new flipbook if the flipbook you are working on was created from a PDF file);

  • New page (adds a blank page after the page you are currently editing);

  • Flipbook size (allows you to resize the pages as you please);

  • Find in document (Ctrl+F) (allows to to search for specific words in the flipbook);
  • Version history (allows you to check the history of the flipbook);

  • Import element/links;

  • Save as template (saves your flipbook as a template);

  • Save (saves your progress without publishing the flipbook).

File options
The View dropdown menu:
  • Zoom in;

  • Zoom out;

  • Zoom fit (the page zooms in to fit your screen);

  • Zoom full (the page is set to its original size);

  • Show pages panel (allows you to show or hide the section where all the pages show on the right);

  • Show layers panel (allows you to show or hide the section where all the layers show on the right);

  • Show settings inspector (allows you to show or hide the settings for different elements such as text, images, etc.);

View options
The Help dropdown menu:

  • Academy (this takes you to Flipsnack Academy, where you can watch detailed videos on every aspect of Flipsnack);
  • How-to videos (our video tutorials will appear on your screen in an overlay, allowing you to watch them without leaving the page);

  • Leave us feedback (you can click here when you want to rate our tool and give us feedback).

Help options

On the right side, you will see that now, along with the Preview (which allows you to see how the flipbook will look like after publishing it) and Download (when you click on this button, an overlay will open where you can select the format you want to download your flipbook in PNG, JPG or PDF) buttons, there is also the Publish button, which will take you to the Customize section. Moreover, you can now change the title of your flipbook directly in the Design Studio.
