FlexPaper 2.3.6 Release Notes

Yay! We have started rolling out version 2.3.6 today. Please find the log of the major changes below. 

How to update:
This release does not require you to republish any of your documents so if you want to install the update without republishing your documents then simply copy and replace the following resources from the distribution file that you are using:

  • FlexPaperViewer.swf
  • js/ (directory)
  • css/ (directory)

Significant changes in this release:

  • Added a condition for safari above version 7 to try to use full screen with keyboard input (known Safari issue) (Zine, Classic)
  • Fixed an issue where swiping on FlexPaper classic on a phone caused the new page to be positioned where the last one was instead of starting from top (Classic viewer)
  • Added checks to avoid touch devices from pinching outside of whats nessecary to view a page on device screen (Classic viewer)
  • Conditions added for single page view to avoid swipe left and right actions when zoomed into a document on touch devices (Classic viewer)
  • Increased the number of memory placeholders for pages in the classic viewer to avoid flickering in some scenarios when zoomed out to low zoom levels
  • Fixed an issue where PreviewMode wasn’t working correctly on IE
  • The Desktop Publisher for Zine now checks if a document is significantly larger after splitting (the duplicating internal resources for some documents can cause this). If its significantly larger then Zine will now use the original PDF to render the document as opposed to the split. This should reduce the size footprint significantly for some documents with this problem
  • Fixed an issue where the ASP.NET scripts were unable to detect publications that were already processed
  • Fixed an issue in the Classic viewer where the number of active placeholders needed were incorrectly calculated causing some documents to flicker in certain zoom sizes
  • Improved page fitting when rotating the classic viewer
  • Improved pinch/zooming to the classic viewer
  • Pinching with a touch device is now prevented when drawing is enabled in the annotations viewer
  • The pdf flip book viewer is now preventing mouse wheel zooming when in preview mode
  • It is now possible to save annotations from the annotations viewer back into the PDF using our php scripts. We will be updating our ASP.NET and .JSP scripts to do the same in next release
  • Minor corrections to the zoom slider which was slow on responding in some scenarios
  • FlexPaper Reflow is now launched in open beta! send an email to [email protected] to participate and try it out!
  • It is now possible to maximize the viewing area when adding Youtube and Vimeo videos to our flip book viewer
  • Fixed an issue where Android devices were not resizing the Classic viewer properly on orientation change
  • Fixed an issue where a border was added to the printout of documents when using annotations
