So, it’s time to put an image onto your canvas….  manipulate it, change it’s properties etc….

Changeg the size of your icons / buttons on your toolbar to make it easier and more comfortable to use Workbook or AlphaTeach

A simple Sentence Maker activity for your interactive whiteboard or display, using Xorro Workbook / AlphaTeach.

A handy hide and reveal tip demonstrated using Workbook / AlphaTeach.

You can integrate videos into your canvas in Workbook and AlphaTeach, and much more. This video shows you how to pause and replay videos embedded on your canvas; how to annotate over them with digital ink; how take snapshots and build a storyboard…. all in the blink of an eye!

Any object’s properties can be changed instantly in Workbook.  Change fill, stroke, opacity, line properties, label properties etc…. Right click on the object and select “properties”, or (once the object is selected) just hit the relevant button the Properties toolbar.

Importing all or selected pages from other Workbook files is a very useful way of capturing work done in earlier files, and bringing it into the current Workbook activity.

The Grids function lets you display a grid as a background.  It’s much more as well however!  You can choose from square or isometric grid types, or otherwise apply lined, handwriting or music score templates to your pages.  You can also (with square or isometric grids) apply the popular “snap-to” functionality, resulting in perfect alignment of objects to the grid coordinates.

On the Page Sorter, each page thumbnail offers a menu through which you can access a number of page formatting options.  You can right-click on the thumbnail, or just click on the down-arrow in the upper right corner of the thumbnail to access this menu of options.  Using this menu you ca adjust page size and orientation, background colour (or image i background), set grids and switch them on or off, clear pages of any content, and delete pages altogether from the Workbook.

Video demonstration on how to set the page background…. Backgrounds can be coloured, and they may have an image applied to them in various ways. Putting items in the background means they cannot be changed by mistake while using the canvas. Grids can be sued as well as backgrounds.
