Qwizdom OKTOPUS Software


Software Update – 4.4.35

It’s been 5 months since our last update, but we think this one was worth waiting for.

Many thanks to our users for the requests they have sent in to us. We’ve successfully implemented the Open Recent feature, as well as a way to split your screen to support the Windows split-screen function. And we’ve added locking to shapes, images, and text boxes.

The Word Vault tool can now be populated on a per-slide basis, and we’ve taken care of a lot of pesky bugs too.
