Downloading PDF from Issuu

Some people were struggling with downloading the free Recipe Book (which was found on this post) from Issuu, so Dawn was kind enough to create some images for us.

Instructions from Dawn:
When you first click on the link to the book, you won't have access to it yet until you log in. But you'll need to create an account first. But first things first, let me show you where the download button is:

When you click on that, you'll be taken to a log in screen (shown in image below) you can either click on sign up, or you can connect via your facebook account.

After I connected my account, it took me to a page where I could fill in additional info. When I clicked on "save", it didn't take me anywhere, and when I went back to the download page, clicking download didn't do anything for me but tell me to log in again (even though it showed at the top that I was logged in"
SO- I decided to subscribe to Hummie's issuu account. Here's an image showing you where you can do that:

After I did that, I totally closed out of the window I was in. Then went back to www.issuu.com and then, at the top on the blue bar, clicked on the arrow next to people, then clicked on "my subscriptions". Here's an image showing you where that's at:

Then, you will see Hummie listed there. Just click on her name:

Then you will see all the books on her account. In this case, there are 2 right now. Click on the one shown in the image below:

Then you'll be back to where you started, and will now be able to click download (first image above)
Now, a pop up will come up, with the download button (shown below) at this point, you will have the option to open or save the PDF file.

Hmm... I did all of that, only there is no pop us with option to download a pdf as described in the last step.

Perhaps they disabled the capability. :(

good tutorial, but instead you can use the following free tool that can do all the job for you without even logging into the site, just provide the tool with the book link and it will export the book as pdf for you directly.

Thanks for the suggestion, Mounir!
