New features on your favorite desktop publisher for publishing online documents includes Vimeo support, disable zoom and great performance improvement for Windows users.
With only a month to go for the Christmas Holidays you might have missed the highlights of the latest release of FlexPaper, version 2.3.0. Don’t worry, here’s a recap.
We have added a flat material style icon set. This will give your publications a fresh contemporary look. Just select the template called material to access this new style icon set for your top menu bar in the desktop publisher.
A full demo of this new icon set will soon be available on our website, so watch this space.
Vimeo is now available as a second video option to add to your digital publication. The feature is added to the desktop publisher, including the Zine and Classic viewers and it works in both Flash and HTML5 mode. To add your Vimeo video clip just add the link that Vimeo has created for you in the appropriate field in the desktop publisher.
Another new setting that has been added to the desktop publisher is the ability to disable the zoom function on your publications.
FlexPaper has updated the graphical design for FlexPaper Zine and FlexPaper Classic and the updated artwork will gradually be changed during the coming months.
With the new big performance improvement with converting documents in Windows, you will experience a faster rendering time for your publications in desktop publisher. If you are a Mac user, don’t worry that you are losing out because the enhancements are already in place for ios.
You do not need to update or republish any of your publications when you download and install the latest version of Flexpaper Desktop Publisher. If you want to republish your documents, simply copy and replace the following resources from the distribution file that you are using:
- js/ (directory)
- css/ (directory)

That’s all for now.
