We're making changes to our player skins on November 28
We know how important it is to have total control of your content and the way you display your flipbooks to your readers and customers.
Up until now, there were 3 different player skins offered in Customize: Classic, Modern and Enhanced. But we’ve got some exciting news. By November 28, 2022 we’ll have two better options instead of three, a new Classic skin, and the new Modern skin!
Why are we retiring the old player skins?
The old Classic and Modern skins served us exceptionally well over the years, but as Flipsnack grew and developed more in both functionalities and complexity, we needed a new flipbook player.
The new Classic and Modern player skins are based on a new technology that offers a smoother and better reading experience, and also improves responsiveness and performance across all devices.
Important: By the date of November 28, 2022, the old Classic skin will be changed with a new appearance, and the old Modern skin will successfully be replaced by the Enhanced skin.
What will happen with the current Classic and Modern skins?
Both of them will keep their name and location in Flipsnack’s Customize, but they will be switched to the new technology and appearance.
The new player skins are similarly looking to the old ones, but with extra benefits and updates such as smoother animations, page overview function and a more pleasant visual experience.
See below how these changes will look like:
On November 28, 2022, the current Enhanced skin will become the new Modern skin.
What happens to the already published flipbooks?
- The published flipbooks will keep their current appearance until you will edit and update them in Flipsnack.
- The embedded flipbooks will have to be updated in Flipsnack and re-embedded on your website in order to switch to the new skin.
Important: On mobile devices, all flipbooks will be displayed with the new Modern skin.
Where can you find the skin options?
If you created your flipbook by uploading your PDF, you’ll be automatically directed to the Customize window where you can hit the Appearance button and choose between the Classic and Modern skins.
Create from scratch
If you created your flipbook from scratch in Design Studio, click on the Customize button that’s in the right top corner which will take you to the Customize window. Here, you have to click on the Appearance button and choose between the Classic and Modern skins. Find out more about all the customization options available in Flipsnack.
We’re striving to come up with the latest technologies, so we hope you’ll enjoy the new player skins as much as we do!
