Hi Deip,

Just want to know:

1. Does this plugin support Text Search within the document? 2. Will it allow us to extend the code if say we want to modify some behaviors or add some functionalities and if so, how is it documented?

Looking forward to your response! Thank you.

Hi,

The plugin doesn’t support text search.

As far as extending the plugin, there are callback and options available: http://deipgroup.com/flipbook/beta-1.2.8/documentation.html#options

We want to add the functionality of highlighting texts and taking notes. Can the text in the flipbook be selected or are the pages turned to images during the conversion of pdf to flipbook?

“Highlighting texts and taking notes” No that is not possible. And those are very much beyond the callback extension ability…

Hey how can I disable downloading pdf?

and is there a method to hide the link in source code?

You can disable downloading by setting the options: http://deipgroup.com/flipbook/beta-1.2.8/documentation.html#options

enableDownload: false,

There is no any method as of now to hide the link in source code..

Hi, i purchased this great plugin. Just want to know, is this plugin support search button for search some word to pdf file? Thanks before

Hi thanks for the purchase, but sadly search is not available as of now.

how to increase the height of PDF display.. present PDF display height is very small. we checked in CSS folder but unable to find out please let me know.

you have given replay to use lightboxes but we are unable to find out where to add. can you please help me

You can find the examples in docs-examples folder.. example-lightbox-html.html

There are plenty of examples and documents to refer to.

In-case you are not able to locate in your download: http://deipgroup.com/flipbook/beta-1.2.8/example-lightbox-html.html

Thank you for this great and smooth flipbook! I bought it yesterday and could easily install it in the evening. However, 2 small questions came up:

1. I’m using the flipbook for a wedding album, so users won’t spend as much time on a double page as with a text document. Which is why I often get empty pages when flipping through. I optimized the PDF best I could (16MB for 90 single pages (45 double pages) of photos); I think that for some use cases it’d be great if you could consider a mode that preloads more than the next double-page for a future update. Maybe the next 2 or 3 double-pages? I think that would already do the trick. Maybe have a parameter “buffering” with options “double” and “triple”?

2. When I use the option “hard:’cover’”, it has an effect for the CSS version, but doesn’t seem to change anything for the WebGL version. Did I miss something?

Thank you and kind regards, Torsten

Hi tdaeges,

Thanks for the purchase… Yeah the loading is quite a double edge sword.. load more it will take time.. load less it will take time and show blank :D In our beta we have added a parameter called chunk size where you can set how much of data you want to transfer in one chunk…

rangeChunkSize: 524288,

previously due to limitation from PDF.js it was set to just 64KB… but now it will be by default 512 KB and you can set to 256KB or 1MB depending on your average request.. so that the request are balanced..

Second, the hard cover, we initially added hard cover.. but was not that good enough… so we avoided :D , but it’s improved and added in current beta…

Can you message us from the contact form in our profile page to get the beta. https://codecanyon.net/user/deip#contact

Best, Deepak.

Great, thank you for your quick reply and the explanations – I messaged you on the profile page just now.

mailed you back already.

Hello How do I filter out pages from full PDF? eg I want to show only Chapter I, from page 3 to 10 only, and hide other pages. Thanks.

Such a thing is not available as of now.. you will have to create new flipbook based on new PDF with those pages differently…

Thanks for quick reply. I think it’s a great features to add.

Unzip it.

Inside that there is dflip-plugin 1.2.8.zip Upload that zip file..

Also there are documentation and all…

If there as any other issue please let me know what exactly the error message you are getting while uploading…

If you are not able to upload at all.. Then it might be a server issue.. Have you tried with any other plugin file for testing??

I tried everything. but not working. what is private mode.?

When I try putting the PDF in another test environment is Works.. Can you send the link to the page… where this error is happening..

Private mode(Firefox) or Incognito mode(Google Chrome) is where no cache environment is used. just like a clean install..

Also It’s not https optional.. Make everything https and those will work.. https and http are cross domain for browsers.. Change the link of pdf to https and it will work… The page link and pdf link should be in same protocol (either https or http)

The above issue is due to https and http conflict.. and modern browsers don’t allow that.

Having trouble in DFlip with interactive PDF that has intra-page links in the Table of Contents. The links “work”... you can click them. But, it navigates to the wrong pages. If you select “download the PDF” and open it in Acrobat. The links function properly and navigate to the correct pages. Any suggestions? The PDF was created from Adobe InDesign. The TOC links were created as simple href “goto page X” links.

Have you checked that in firefox… we use the same pdf.js library developed by mozilla.. or you can send the link to your page. We will have a look.

Why isn’t there a “Print” button?

deip

deip Author

I too wonder sometimes… dont know exactly what to say at the moment.. it’s not a hard thing to add compared to other features.. but… how often do readers print?

I plan to buy it for a client. He specifically asked for print and download. I really like this plugin but if it doesn’t have it I cannot. As they say “the client is always right”.

deip

deip Author

Yeah.. you are right.. the reason was if one can download a pdf he/she can print through the inbuilt pdf viewer so… I look into adding it inside more options..

hello, quick question, can the compression of the JPG be edited? The would like to improve the quality.

Thanks

Andreas

deip

deip Author

compression in sense.. from PDF flipbook or normal image based flipbook

Alrighty. Is this the right spot?

I can’t get rid of the sidebar. I’m wondering how to do that. When I remove the example.js file, I can no longer use the full-height example.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, Sorry for the trouble, Other customers can also find this comment useful if in right place..

The height is based on the body of the page which is quite dependent on a class set by example.js There body is the parent of flipbook and the flipbook takes 100% of parent(body), only stopped by 320px of minimum height

In short all you need is the body to be of full height..
    body {
      height: 100%;
    }

Corrected for future updates of examples..

You can alternatively use lightboxes for full-height implementation. We encourage using that since they are easier to use.. You might need to take in account the height factor of parent element like in full-height-example for the flipbook to be of fullheight..

Best, Deip

that worked. thank you.
