行為

在主工具欄上,點擊Magic Box圖標以打開Magic Box視窗。 從Magic Box視窗的頂部欄中選擇一個選項。

導入資源

將資源從本地硬碟或雲導入myViewBoard畫布。

默認情況下,Magic Box會顯示保存在當前登錄用戶的整合雲儲存帳號中的myViewBoard文件夾。 但是,您可以在雲儲存中的任何位置導航。

要添加資源:

  • 雙擊該對象
  • 單擊並將對象拖動到畫布上

點擊下面的其中一個過濾器以限制Magic Box中顯示的文件類型。

  • All file types
    顯示可以導入myViewBoard的所有文件類型

  • 僅限文件
    顯示以下文件。
    - .pptx
    - .pdf
    - .docx
    - .one
    - .txt
    - .url

    myViewBoard以不同方式處理某些文件類型:
    - 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.
    - Use the File Conversion Request feature on the myViewBoard.com website
    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.


  • Show pictures, music and video files only
    The following media formats are supported:
    Audio/Video formats
    - .wmv
    - .mp4
    - .mpg
    - .xesc
    - .3gp
    - .mov
    - .mp4
    - .mpeg
    - .mkv
    - .asf
    - .avi
    - .m4v
    - .mp3
    - .aac
    - .wma

    - .m4a
    Image formats
    - .bmp
    - .png
    - .jpg
    - .jpeg

    - .tif
    - .tiff
    To play music and video files, click the play button. Additional codecs may be required to play some music/video file types.



Sticky Notes

Sticky notes are objects that contain text or freehand drawings. When not being edited, myViewBoard displays sticky notes as small colored squares that show a preview of its contents.

To add a new sticky note:

  1. Click the Magic Box icon.
  2. Click the Sticky Notes icon.
  3. Select a color for the note.

myViewBoard expands the editing area for easier input.

  • Click the text tool to write text.
  • Click the pen tool to draw freehand shapes.

When the note is closed, it shrinks to a small square.

  • To move a sticky note, click the Selection tool and drag the note across the canvas.
  • To view or edit the contents, double-click the note.

YouTube

The YouTube tool allows searching YouTube for related videos using keywords.

  • Type a keyword into the search box (preferably the name of the video).
  • Review the search results. To preview the video before selecting, click the video to play it directly in the search results window.
  • Double-click a video from the search results, or drag the video out to the canvas. Videos are added in a window, which can be resized or displayed full screen.

Saving the canvas also saves the video with the canvas.

Alternatively, you can also do the following:

  • You can also insert education videos from Boclips via the myViewBoard Clips feature. For more details, see myViewBoard Clips.
  • Use the Embedded browser to access http://youtube.com and perform a video search. On the search results, click and drag the video title onto the canvas. The video displays in a floating frame.

Tools

Tools are interactive objects that can enhance any presentation. To use an item in Tools, double click, or click and drag onto the canvas.

  • Click the Camera icon.
  • Select a camera from the list.
