Frequently Asked Questions



I’m having trouble figuring out the navigation. What are the basics?

You can read the magazine linearly (cover to cover) or jump around using the “Contents” pull tab in the upper left hand corner, or the “View Contents” bar on the bottom of the magazine. The blue “View Contents” bar can be used by clicking on the bar, and then selecting an article by double-clicking on its cover image.
When navigating page by page through the issue, use the left and right arrows in the bottom corners of each page.



Can I skip the animations?

Just click on the “Skip Intro” button that appears in the lower right corner of the page.



How can I see a page in the magazine without scrolling?
FLYP is best experienced in full-screen mode for easy viewing of the multimedia and text. When you first enter the magazine, our logo will drop down and clicking on that will immediately take you to full-screen mode.
If you are already in the magazine and want to enter full-screen mode, just click on the “Full Screen” button on the upper right hand corner of the magazine. Hitting the escape button on your keyboard will return to your normal settings.



How do I get back to the homepage from the magazine?

Click on the graphic on the upper left hand corner of the magazine that looks like a house or the "X" in the upper right hand corner.





What version of the Flash player do I need?

If you are experiencing problems viewing the magazine experience, it might be that you don’t have a current Flash player installed. To update or download a Flash plug-in, go to the Adobe Web site.



Can I download videos or audio clips from your site?

We do not allow our readers to download videos or audio clips directly from the magazine. If you’d like to embed our videos on your own blog or Web site, please visit our YouTube channel and embed the video you are looking for.



The videos and animations are not streaming properly. What can I do?
It might be that your Internet connection is too slow to handle a smooth stream of our multimedia content. Most users with a DSL line or broadband connection should not have problems with the loading of the magazine. Please contact us if you experience further problems.



How do I share your articles? Can I email them to friends?
