When binding a cloud storage account, a folder is created within the "myViewBoard" folder called "Magic Line Pen". Users can then add common image files such as .png or .jpg to this folder. Next, under the FollowMe settings on myviewboard.com, click Magic Line Pen from the menu on the left. If the images haven't updated already, click the refresh icon. The user may also need to sign out of Whiteboard for Windows and sign in again for the changes to take effect. Simply open the Magic Line Pen tool by clicking/tapping twice on the pen icon in the main toolbar to use the custom images.
