PAGE 6 Step 2: Select a suitable skin The appearance of your publication is determined by what we call the ‘Skin’. A skin is a collection of all the graphical elements (like text, panel settings and background images) that together make up the User Interface for your publications. FlippingBook Publisher comes with 24 professionally designed skins by default. These skins give a coherent look to all the elements in your publication. Steps to change the skin Go to the Settings panel. Open the Appearance section Click on the Publication Skin preview window. Choose a skin that goes well with your publication by clicking on the miniature preview. The new skin will then be applied to your publication. 1 2 3 4
