Contextual menu

A more accessible way to access the most used options such as copy, paste and more.

Great news for everyone who is using the Design Studio to create publications on Flipsnack! There’s a new type of menu that is more easily accessible and which contains the most used actions while designing. This is called a contextual menu.

What is a contextual menu?

A contextual menu is a pop-up menu that appears on user interactions such as mouse right-click with a set of predefined options. The options available are related to the object or objects that have been selected.

With the new contextual menu in the Design Studio, your work is simpler and easier from now on because you have access to many of the options you need by simply using the mouse right-click functionality.

Let’s see how it works.

When you work on a design in Flipsnack select an element or multiple elements and then simply use the mouse right-click to reveal the new contextual menu.

The menu is compatible with text boxes, photos, videos and other elements.

Options you can easily access in the menu:

  • Copy, cut, paste or delete elements

  • Move forward or backward selected elements

  • Align elements (left, middle, right, top, center, bottom)

  • Lock or unlock selected elements

  • Group or ungroup multiple elements at once
