Using the New in 15.2 Screen Capture Toolbar

May 25, 2016

You just have to look at the SMART’s new screen capture toolbar to know it is different.  The icons have changed!  I use the shape and area captures almost exclusively so in this blog, I will describe the area capture.

  1. Click on the screen capture toolbar in SMART Ink or the top menu (if you have added it to the toolbar).
  2. Click on the left icon which is the shape capture.  The screen will grey.
  3. Draw a rectangle around the area you want to capture.  When you let go of the mouse (using the computer) or lift your pen, your image will appear.
  4. Under the captured image are choices.  You can save on the desktop or do something else.  If you do send to the desktop, a Capture folder is created and your images will be saved with the file name that represents the date and time.
  5. The something else includes a) sending to SMART Notebook, b) choosing a save location or c) sending to the clipboard.

 

Happy Learning!

Adding the New Camera Capture to the Toolbar in Notebook

May 11, 2016

I could not believe the change in the screen capture toolbar!  It has been the same for the seven years I have been using the feature and I always loved it, but now it has more.

The screen capture toolbar is not found in the top toolbar any longer as it is included in SMART Ink.  However, SMART Ink is not visible when you are not connected to a SMART Board.  Because I use the camera tools when planning lessons, I added it to the toolbar.  To do this,

  1. Click on the configuration tool at the top right of Notebook.  It looks like a cogwheel.
  2. Click on the Actions Tab and scroll down.
  3. Drag the screen capture icon up to the toolbar.  Do not let go of the left mouse button until you have hovered over the toolbar.

Now you can use the camera any time.  As well, you can configure your toolbar so that it contains only the items you really want to use.  Watch for the blog about using the new screen capture toolbar.

 

Happy Learning!
