The introduction of the Title bar, Cover page, Document shortcut menu, Topic shortcut menu, and Switch to relatives feature significantly changes the appearance of the Reader page. These changes require configuration by an administrator. If this condition is not met, the Reader page will keep its legacy appearance. Information about navigating the legacy Reader page is available in previous versions of this document.

Users with the Personal_Book_Share_User role can enable the Share toggle in the Personal book cover page. This copies the URL of the Personal book to the user's clipboard. Any other users who access the URL can export a PDF or HTML version of the shared Personal Book.

The URL generated after enabling the Share toggle for a Personal Book is accessible to administrators and visible in the Most Popular Documents tab of the Analytics page. To prevent a Personal Book from being accessible in this way, it is necessary to leave the Share toggle disabled.

When sharing is enabled for a Personal book, a "Shared" tag appears in the Personal Books interface. It is possible to modify a shared Personal book at any time.


Users who receive the URL to a shared Personal book might not be able to access it for the following reasons:

  • They do not have the right to view certain topics.
  • They do not have a Fluid Topics account.
  • They have a Fluid Topics account, but they are not signed in.
