iPaper allows you to create engaging online catalogs by converting PDF files into Flipbooks.

Creating a Flipbook is quite simple. Check it out:

How to create a new Flipbook

  1. Right-click the folder you wish to create a flipbook in

  2. Choose Create flipbook

  3. Give your flipbook a name

  4. Add the PDF you wish to use as content
    You can drag and drop the PDF file from your computer into the dotted area – or
    Upload or select a PDF from Media by clicking in the Choose PDF field

  5. Click Create flipbook

Your Flipbook is now queued for processing and will be ready in just a moment.
It will have inherited settings from the folder it is created in.

Advanced options

While you can create a Flipbook with the simple steps above, iPaper also offers more advanced features.

To access them, click Show advanced options in the Create Flipbook / Change PDF window.

  1. Toggle Advanced options on or off

  2. Import bookmarks
    If your PDF file has bookmarks, you can import them directly into your Flipbook as a Table of Contents.

  3. Import links
    If your PDF has hyperlinks, you can import them directly into your Flipbook as enrichments.

  4. Password for PDF
    If your PDF is password protected, you can enter the password here for the system to use.

  5. Pages to use
    Here you can choose a specific page range within your PDF, to be used to create the Flipbook.

  6. Keep color profile
    By default, iPaper strips the colorspace and ICC profile assigned to the PDF.
    Select this if you wish to retain it.
