Screen Annotation

How do you annotate on top of a word document?


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?


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!
