All file types

Shows ALL file types that can be imported into myViewBoard.

Unsupported file types will not be displayed.



Documents only

Shows the following files.

  • .pptx
  • .pdf
  • .docx
  • .one
  • .txt
  • .url


myViewBoard handles certain file types differently:

  • Imported text files (.txt) are placed in text boxes. Double-click the textbox to edit the content.
  • For document (.docx) and PDF files, pages are converted into images and are placed in the middle of the canvas. These images are locked by default and cannot be moved. Click the lock icon to unlock the image.
  • For documents with multiple pages, myViewBoard creates a new canvas page for each page in the document. To verify if all pages were imported correctly:
- Click the page icon to view all pages.
- Use the Next and Previous icons on the Floating Toolbar to navigate each canvas page.
  • For PowerPoint files (.pptx), myViewBoard displays the following import options:
- Foreground - same behavior for other document files. Each page is imported as an object on the canvas.
- Background - myViewBoard 'opens' the PowerPoint file so that it fills up the whole application window. Zoom in/out is disabled. Use the Next and Previous icons on the Floating Toolbar to navigate each canvas page.



Show whiteboard formats only

myViewBoard attempts to import these resources as is.

  • .vboard
  • .iwb
  • .enb
  • .notebook
  • .flipchart


myViewBoard may encounter some issues when importing .notebook and .flipchart files, especially if these have flash dependencies. As a workaround, you can try the following procedures first:


  • Use the original software to export the file to .iwb.
  1. Use the original software to open the .notebook and .flipchart file.
  2. Export the file to IWB.
  3. Try to import the exported IWB file.


  1. Sign in to the myViewBoard.com website and click File Conversion Request.
  2. Upload the .notebook and .flipchart file to convert.
  3. Wait for the conversion process to finish. An email notification will be sent on completion.
  4. Download the converted .iwb file and try importing again.
