Paperturn Flipbook System FAQ

Can I download the Paperturn system as a software application?

No, we are entirely web-based to ensure continuing quality and updates within the product.


Is FLASH needed?

Not at all. Paperturn runs with HTML5.


I deleted my publication. Am I able to restore it?

Unfortunately, no. To adhere to privacy policies, once a flipbook is deleted, it is permanently deleted from our system and servers.


If I purchase one flipbook, can I simply re-upload/overwrite PDF files in that publication slot?

Yes. If you have multiple PDF files, you can overwrite a "publication slot" at any time and as often as you wish. However, this will only allow one flipbook to be published online at any one time; if you wish to have numerous flipbooks active together, you will need to purchase more "slots".

Will I be able to send my flipbook as an email attachment?

You can't send your flipbook as an email attachment, but you can embed your flipbook directly into your email signature or leave a link to your flipbook in the body of your email - that way when you update/overwrite your flipbooks, the new flipbook you upload will automatically work with the old link/embed code. Click here to find out more...

What is a private publication?

A private publication cannot be shared via social media and is only visible to people you allow access.

There are two ways you can allow access to a private publication:

1. Define a username/password combination and share it.
2. Enable the IP addresses of those you give permission to.


Detailed instructions on how to set this up can be found here.

How can I remove the download PDF option?

If I upload a PDF to Paperturn which contains links, are those links transferred when uploading the PDF into a flipbook?
