How can I change the appearance of the viewer?

Creating a viewer Skin is an exclusive feature of PREMIUM and PLATINUM accounts. If you are a BASIC user and wish to benefit from this feature, please upgrade.

You can easily modify the look of the viewer for your publications by changing its Skin.

The viewer Skin includes navigation elements, menu buttons and interactive features such as the appearance of external links.

You may choose one of the ready-made viewer Skins from the set of options provided by Calaméo. To do so, go to the Publications page of your account.

PREMIUM and PLATINUM users may also create their own viewer Skins in order to customize the viewer’s appearance for their publications.

For a full list of the possible changes, please consult our documentation.

If you are a PREMIUM user, you will need to host your Skin and all the necessary graphic elements on your own server.

To use a Skin that you are hosting on your own server, go to the Publications page of your account. Select a publication and click on the Pencil icon.

Under the Design tab, click the link to enter a URL beneath Select a Skin.

In the field that opens, enter a valid, secure URL (starting with https://) where your viewer Skin file is hosted.

If you are already using a custom Skin on another publication, it will automatically appear as an option in the Select a Skin drop-down menu.

PLATINUM users may create new custom Skins in the Elements section of their accounts.

Once a custom Skin has been uploaded to your account, it will automatically appear as an option in the Select a Skin drop-down menu.

If you are a PLATINUM user, you may add your custom Skin to multiple publications simultaneously.
