Adding Interactivity in Flipbooks

In this video we give an overview of the interactive features available in Flipbooks Online

There are a number of interactive elements you can add to pages of your Flipbooks. This article will focus on adding interactivity to the pages of your Flipbooks.

All interactivity is added from the Interactive toolbar that resides on the left panel of the Flipbook editor, shown below. You can reposition this panel to the top of the page if you are working on a Landscape style page and need some extra horizontal space. Do this by selecting the  button at the bottom of the panel.
