Click the Import Resource icon on the Magic Box toolbar to import resources from the local hard drive or the Cloud into the myViewBoard canvas.

Behavior

The Magic Box displays resources located on all local and cloud-based drives.

  • If viewing a local drive, myViewBoard displays the contents of "This PC" (all local drives and standard "library" folders). Click on a folder to navigate to a sub-folder.
  • When viewing the contents of a cloud account, the Magic Box displays the myViewBoard > Media   folder saved in the integrated Cloud storage account.


To go up one folder, click   , or click one of the entries in the breadcrumb navigation. Use the following icons on the toolbar to manage the view:

Icon Description
Refreshes the folder contents. If new files have been added, click to do a force-reload of the folder.
Switches to grid view. Files display as large icons.
Switches to list view. Useful when your files have long file names. This view also displays date modified and file size information. Click the column header to sort by that column.
Displays the search box. Type a few keywords, then press enter to search all folders accessible in the cloud account. This function is available only for cloud drives.


To add a resource:

  • Double click the object
  • Click and drag the object onto the canvas

To limit the type of files displayed in the Magic Box, select one of the options from the File Types drop-down.

  • For PowerPoint files (.pptx), myViewBoard displays the following import options:
- Foreground - same behavior for other document files. Each page is imported as an object that can be manipulated on the canvas.
- Background - myViewBoard sets the PowerPoint file as a background that fills up the whole application window. User cannot interact with the background except zoom in/out.
Use the Next and Previous icons on the Floating Toolbar to cycle through each canvas page.
  • myViewBoard for Android does not support opening PDF files with more than 50 pages.
  • To access files in Google Drive, bind to a Google Drive account first. To bind to a Google Drive account, use the FollowMe screen on the myViewBoard.com website.

Importing Google Slides using the Magic Box




Other whiteboard formats

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.
