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.

Annotation Mode in Workbook / AlphaTeach is also known as “Glass Mode”. Here’s where you can use your favourite Workbook pens or other tools right over any software or document in your computer. This is a great way to extend the power of Workbook to any other tools on your computer. Mark up documents; draw on images, maps and charts; use the magnifier or the spotlight to focus viewer attention on part of your screen…. It can all be done using Annotation Mode.

The built-in (“internal”) web browser in Workbook / AlphaTeach makes it even easier to integrate web presented materials with your classroom activities. You can manage the view easily, and write or draw over the top of the web page without having to move away from your Workbook whiteboard page. Perhaps best of all for those interactive pages, you can take snapshots to record your progress, and build them up as a “stack” or a storyboard for later….
