Pages overview

Learn about the benefits of the pages overview feature and how to include it in your publications.

The pages overview feature is ideal for flipbooks that have a large number of pages. It improves readability as it allows you to preview the entire content of the flipbook you are about to read and to quickly navigate to a specific page or chapter from your publication.

The pages overview feature works with both Classic and Modern player skins, regardless of your subscription plan. It works for uploaded PDFs and flipbooks made from scratch or with the help of a template.

How to add the pages overview feature to your flipbooks

The page overview feature is not active by default on flipbooks. However, you can easily activate it in the customization phase when creating a new flipbook or when updating an existing one.

There are two ways to reach the Customize page: from the My flipbooks or from the Design Studio.

For existing flipbooks, when on the My flipbooks page, click on Customize.

Once you are on the customization page:

1. Click on Appearance & branding and set the player to Classic or Modern. You can also choose any of the layout styles (smart view, single page view, two-page view), and the overview will adapt to the style.

In case you have included a lead form in your publication, or if you are selling a subscription for your publications, the pages which are hidden behind the lead form will appear as locked.
