Qwizdom OKTOPUS Software


Glass Mode

Please note a change in Glass Mode functionality for version 4.5.5

Our Glass Mode function described as below has been temporarily removed with version 4.5.5 and replaced with “Simple Glass Mode”. Click here to read more about Simple Glass Mode.

We found Glass Mode to have a detrimental effect on computer performance and made OKTOPUS unusable on 4K screens running low spec but 4K-capable hardware. We know this affects all of our users and was not a decision taken lightly. We will be re-introducing our original Glass Mode functionality with a future update.

You will however find a major improvement in the performance of the pen.

Please contact us if you would like further information. Original Glass Mode functionality documentation remains below for users on older versions of the software.

Thank you for your understanding.
Your OKTOPUS Team.

When Oktopus is opened, the Oktopus toolbar appears on the left hand side. By default, Oktopus will start with a transparent background, called Glass Mode.

Please Note: Glass Mode is not compatible with “Tablet Mode” in Windows 10.

Glass Mode enables annotation and the use of other tools over the current display, whether it’s an application, a web browser, or simply the Desktop. The Glass Mode layer also supports click-through, so there is no need to minimize Oktopus to work with other programs.

Navigating to a new slide will take a screenshot of everything on the screen at that moment in time for future review. When a screenshot has been taken, the word “screenshot” with an “x” will appear at the top middle of the screen.

To delete the screenshot, tap the “x”. Please note that once you delete a screenshot, you cannot get it back again.
