[pdf issuu_pdf_id="id_of_your_PDF" width="500" height="300"]

In this example, we want to specify a width and a height only for this PDF

[pdf issuu_pdf_id="id_of_your_PDF" layout="browsing" autoFlip="true" autoFlipTime="4000"]

In this other example, we want to specify the browsing layout (one page presentation) and we want the PDF pages to autoflip each 4 seconds
