This article is all about the way pages are displayed in the flipbook, after you publish it.
In Flipsnack, there are 3 different options available:
- Single page view - Displays one page at a time in the flipbook widget, regardless of the device size or browser size. We recommend this option if you want to use the pages as slides in a presentation, and for other landscape oriented flipbooks. For landscape publications, if you display both pages, they sometimes look a little bit small and hard to read.
- Smart display - It's called "smart" because it provides the best display solution, based on the screen size. It displays one page at a time on mobile devices and 2 pages on laptop screens or computers, balancing readability with the elegance of a real-life looking publication. This is the default setting for most flipbooks.
- Two page view - Displays two-page spreads always, regardless of the screen size. It's also the only option available for publications designed in Flipsnack Design Studio, with the double page mode enabled.
Changing the page layout can be useful sometimes. You can access it by going to Customize and selecting the desired option for Layout style.
Why can't I change the Layout style?
Like we mentioned above, if you designed your publication in Flipsnack in the double page mode, the only option possible for you is the Two page view. This shouldn't be a problem, since you originally planned your design as a two page spread.
The other two options are greyed out, as they are not available.
Additionally to that, the single page option is a premium feature and it is available if you have designed your publication in a single page view
However, if you designed your publication in single page mode in Flipsnack and you are a premium user, all 3 options are still available, and you can use whichever one you prefer.
