How to add private notes?

First, open the flipbook.

There are two private notes icons available in a viewer: in the bar above and in the right bottom corner of a flipbook.


It’s up to you which one you use to add a private note – they both work the same! Just click any of them to create a new private note. It is possible to click the icon multiple times to create numerous private notes on a single page.

Now type anything you wish in the text field – don’t worry, nobody except you will see your notes. It’s also important to bear in mind that private notes are stored only within the browser you used to add them.
