  • On the settings tab; the defaults will be:
    • Widget Type: Classic
    • Layout Style: Single Page
    • Tooltip Language: English
    • These defaults are fine but of course can be changed as needed!
    • Background Color: This applies a background that often looks like a bar behind your flipbook.  The color can be changed to anything you like.  Transparent is a great option because it doesn't distract from the Flipbook.
