How to install Flip?

  • Pick a folder on your hard drive which is easy to find and will not be regularly deleted (e.g. do note save in the Downloads folder).  I recommend creating a folder within your Document folder.
  • Double click the file.  The file includes an auto-installer.  Depending your your security settings you may see this window:
    Flip - enable macros
    Click Enable Macros
  • If the Flip Add-in has installed correctly you should see the following message:
    Flip Help Install Successful

The Add-in keeps disappearing

Some users may experience the add-in disappearing from the Ribbon.  This is due to a security setting.  To ensure the add-in open correctly each time follow these instructions:

  • Find the folder where the Flip Add-in is saved.
  • Right click on the file and select Properties
  • In the Security section the bottom of the General Tab tick the box for Unblock.  Then click OK.
  • Close Excel and re-open it.  The Add-in should now appear.
