Amidst many of today's modern designs, a wink to the past is sometimes exactly what we need. Speaking to many of our users, we realized that the page flip animation is one of those nostalgic features that will make your readers smile. That’s why we’ve added the option to enable a Flip effect for your publications.
Earlier this year we improved how you could embed your publications on your website. After hearing your feedback and seeing how your publications were embedded, we felt there was still room for improvement. Thanks to your feedback we've made it easier to obtain your embed code and have made sure that the embedded publications look great on all sizes.
Many of you have asked for more control over who can access your publications, so we’re excited to announce that we're delivering the first improvement in this area today. You can now password protect your publications to keep away unwanted visitors.
Google is set to fully discontinue Google Catalogs on August 4 (Note: now extended to August 12), 2015, meaning that by then, all material published with Google Catalogs will be taken offline. We decided to step in and help brands migrate from Google Catalogs to Publitas.
We always go to great lengths to ensure your online publications are beautifully displayed and that they use as much screen space as possible. Based on the feedback that you have given us, we've added a few options that can improve how you display your publications.
Creating hotspots for your publication can be quite time consuming. This is why we’re introducing Automatic Link Detection. With this feature, any URLs, email addresses or existing web and document links in your PDF are automatically detected and tagged with either a Link or a Page Link hotspot.
Over the past few months, we've received several inquiries from our customers asking for crisper images and texts. Well, you spoke and we listened. Our mad scientists gave their best shot to enhance the readability of your publications, and we think you're going to like the difference.
We’ve been working hard to give you more control over the viewer in which your publications are displayed. Last month we made it possible for you to brand your publications, and with this update you can enable or disable specific features such as sharing or print. We've also released a search feature (beta) so people can search through the text in your publications.
