Question: Where can I find different shapes to add to my lessons from the MimioStudio toolbar?


  • Submitted By:

  • Date:
    Dec. 18, 2013

Answer: Would you like to quickly add shapes, lines, and even transparent objects to your interactive lessons?


The MimioStudio Toolbar allows you to easily add content to your MimioStudio Notebook such as: rectangles, squares, triangles, circles, lines, and more. You can even make objects in your lessons transparent by using the MimioStudio Shape and Line Tools.


The short video below will demonstrate where you can find the Shape and Line Tools on your MimioStudio Toolbar. The video also reveals how these simple shapes and lines can be used in your lessons to enhance student interaction and engagement.



The Shape and Line Tools can be found under the 3rd icon to the right on the MimioStudio toolbar. By right-clicking on that icon, you will bring up a drop-down menu of shapes, as well as line/arrow choices for your lessons. Choose a shape, choose your color for both the interior and exterior, then click and drag on your Mimio page to create your shape. Experiment with shapes and lines to add interest to your lessons!


If you would like to learn even more about the MimioStudio Line and Shape Tools and take your skills to the next level, you might be interested in attending our MimioStudio Basics I: A Tour of MimioStudio Quick Learn session. This one hour training session is available for credit in both an on-demand and live format.

Question:

How do I convert my handwriting to text recognition in my notebook?

  • Submitted By:
    Nita Springle
  • Date:
    Dec. 18, 2013

Answer:

The process is fairly straight-forward when doing the conversion. You need to first highlight the writing you want to convert. To do this, choose the selection tool from your toolbar (it's the arrow on the top, in the left hand column). Click and drag from the upper left hand corner of the writing to the lower right hand corner of the writing. You want to make sure you cover all of the writing. A box gets created around the writing. Now, do one of two things, click on [Ctrl + R] or go to Tools in the menu and choose "Recognize ink." I wouldn't recommend going to Edit and clicking on "select all" to convert everything at once because that will convert the handwriting into text lined up in a column. If you had writing randomly done throughout the notebook page and wanted to keep that format, it would be lost if you used the select all method. One other thing to keep in mind is that the larger your handwriting is to start, when converted, it will be a larger sized text. If you want to keep it large, that is fine but you now have the option to make it smaller, just like with any text being editable.
