Screen Annotation

Cameron.Nichols's picture

How do you annotate on top of a word document?

Answer: 

Annotating a file is so easy! First, open up the File you wish to annotate (I believe you are using a Word Document). Next, position everything on the screen the way you would like (once you freeze the screen you are unable to zoom, scroll down etc.) Now, press on the Screen Annotation on your Toolbar (the last button, lower right hand corner). Your screen will now freeze and you are able to annotate everything using the various tools on your Toolbar. Once you have completed your annotations simply press ESC on your keyboard or right click and select “CLOSE.” You will find a copy of your newly annotated page in your Gallery inside the Screen Annotations folder.

Saving lesson as a PDF

Cameron.Nichols's picture

I create my math lessons on Mimio. I want to post them to my web site as a PDF so my students have access to them from home. How can I do that?

Answer: 

What a great idea! To do this go to FILE>SAVE AS in MimioStudio Notebook and then at the bottom of the SAVE AS menu you will see FILES OF TYPE. Drop down that menu and select PDF from the list there. You will have the option to save the current page, all pages, or a selected page range. You are also able to select the picture size. Once you've selected the above options simply click on OK and you now have a PDF copy of your lesson. Just be sure to save your original lesson first as a regular .ink file before saving it in another format!

Losing Toolbar

Cameron.Nichols's picture

I seemed to have lost the Mimio tools. How do I get it back?

Answer: 

Excellent question and one that we see quite often. It is possible that the toolbar gets hidden between different applications you have open if you are switching back and forth. You should be able to open up for Toolbar from TOOLS>MIMIOSTUDIO TOOLS in the top menu of notebook, from the shortcut on your computer or from the paintbrush icon in the lower right hand corner of MimioStudio Notebook. If for some reason you are still not able to find it I would save your document and close out of Notebook completely and then reopen it.

File Insert

Cameron.Nichols's picture

Is there a way to insert a table?

Answer: 
You will be happy to know that you have a few different options when it comes to inserting a table into your MimioStudio Notebook lesson. I’m not sure which application the table you are trying to insert is formatted in but you can try to copy and paste it in by right clicking on the table, select COPY and then once you are in MimioStudio Notebook simply right click again and select PASTE. You could also do this by using the menu options at the top of MimioStudio Notebook. If the copy/paste option doesn’t work you can always use the screen clipping tool (which is on your toolbar) to clip the chart and add it to your lesson. In this case it would be easy for the students to use various tools to annotate the table. Another option is to simply keep the table in its native application and use Screen Annotation which would freeze the screen and allow for you or your students to annotate the table. When using this method a copy of your annotations is automatically saved in your Gallery for future reference.
