Do you have a lot of URLs or email addresses in your PDFs? Then you're going to be interested in our latest, smart update available for our Professional, Business and Enterprise members.
Many of you told us that you were spending a lot of time manually adding hyperlinks in your PDFs, after uploading them on Flipsnack. That's a boring activity and we know you have better ways to spend your time! So, we decided to automate the process for you.
With our new Auto-create web links option you don't have to manually hyperlink all URLs or email addresses anymore.
How we detect links
or email addresses:
In your uploaded PDF file, they will be automatically detected in your file. What is important to remember is that URLs and email addresses need to be formatted properly in order for our software to detect them.
Then you will have the option to have them automatically hyperlinked or not.
If your PDF file contains a table of contents, this feature will be available and you will be prompted the message "We've detected a table of contents in your document. Enable this option to display them in your flipbook widget".
If your PDF file does not contain a table of contents or if the table of contents is not formatted properly, the Table of contents option will be disabled and you will be prompted the message "We didn't detect a table of contents in your document, so this option is unavailable".
How to enable link detection
Once you have uploaded your PDF file, go to the Customize tab and check the Auto-create web links feature.
With Flipsnack it is that easy to have all your URLs hyperlinked!
