Community Feedback – More IWB Support and General Usability Ideas
Many thanks to our IWB import users for their continued feedback, this time when loading consecutive IWB files. We’ve seen the issue and we will fix it!
We’ve also had some great usability feedback on different ways to use OKTOPUS, particularly when prepping a lesson.
These items include different ways to save (save vs save-as), mouse controls for the eraser, moving slides around, and tools remembering previous settings.
We’re taking all of these on board and we hope to deliver! Stay tuned.
Community Feedback – IWB Improvements and Clipboard Support
Our IWB import has been well received and a lot of users are now able to bring across their legacy content to OKTOPUS.
Through this, we’ve received valuable feedback and a lot more “real life” IWB files to test. We’re going to address import speed, layering issues, positioning, and as many more issues as we can. We can’t wait to get this release out the door to make your IWB imports even better!
We’ve also had a lot of users asking for clipboard support, where you can copy and paste from other areas or applications into OKTOPUS. We’ve been working on this already, so watch out for it in the upcoming release.
Community Feedback – IWB Import
In the months following the release of Qwizdom OKTOPUS, we have received a lot of requests for IWB import support from our user community to help them transition from their legacy software to our solution.
IWB files can be exported from many whiteboard software packages and include objects such as annotations, lines, shapes, images, and text. You can read more about the IWB project at http://iwbcff.sourceforge.net/
We are committed to delivering this feature in an upcoming release.
IWB Import (for Smart Notebook and Promethean ActivInspire files) is now available in version 4.4.23 (August 7th, 2015).
