March 2022 Product Update

March 30, 2022

Strap in your seatbelts and put your tray tables in the upright position, because this product update is really taking off with all the new features we’ve packed into it. Without further ado, we’d like to present to you:

Large file size warnings in Media Library

Now, when you upload a file in a size that exceeds our Best Practice guidelines, you’ll be notified of this. Of course, you’re still welcome to upload any supported file under 1 GB, but we’d like to make you aware of the potential negative impact to your end-user experience.

Improved Media Library picker in the Enrichment Editor

We’ve made a small, but significant change to the Enrichment Editor interface. Now, when you want to insert an image into your Flipbook, you have access to the same modern Media library found in the Flipbook overview. 💯

The result is a much faster, more streamlined experience when populating your Flipbooks with visual assets.

Expanded language support

We now support an additional six languages in the Flipbook viewer: Armenian, Belarusian, Indonesian, Kazakh, Kyrgyz, and Macedonian. This means that your visitors can now experience the Flipbook viewer interface in 51 different languages!

Login with reCAPTCHA now works in China

We’ve great news for our customers in China: we have deployed a fix allowing reCAPTCHA to work when logging in to iPaper, making your login process even more secure.

New Keyboard shortcuts

For those of you that manage Flipbooks with large numbers of enrichments or just want the job done quickly, we’ve got good news! The iPaper interface supports a number of new keyboard shortcuts, intended to give you a quicker overview over your different Flipbooks, and make editing of Enrichment-heavy Flipbooks faster, and easier.

Easily preview your Flipbooks via keyboard shortcuts

You can now quickly open a preview of any Flipbook in your iPaper account by holding the option key on a Mac, or alt key on a PC, whilst left-clicking on the Flipbook. This will then open the Flipbook directly in a new tab, as opposed to a normal left-click, which opens the Flipbook overview pane. Quick and easy!

Quickly access and edit Folder settings via keyboard shortcuts

We’ve made it even easier for you to access Folder settings in iPaper. You can now open them directly in a new tab by holding the CTRL key on a PC or Command key on Mac, whilst clicking on the Folder in question.

Select multiple links in the Enrichment Editor via the command-key on Mac

While being able to select multiple links in the Enrichment Editor is a longstanding feature, Mac users have previously done this by holding the CTRL key whilst selecting multiple links. We noticed, however, that this created a suboptimal user experience, as this key binding opens the context menu whenever you click. That’s why we now also support selecting multiple links whilst holding the Command key, which bypasses this issue.
