Copy and Paste

Hello. I have been trying to use this since I downloaded it a few days ago. If I type in the names each time it will work. However, no matter how I copy and paste it just pops up another text box on top of the name generator. How do I get this to work? I've tried Crtl C and Crtl V, I've also tried right clicking, nothing works. Thank you!!

I can't wait to use this in

I can't wait to use this in my classroom. Students are always raising their hand before called on and before they know the answer. I think this will be a wonderful management tool.

Works Flawlessly

I did as you suggested and put the names of my students in a Word file. Copy and paste works like a charm. And my kids were really engaged, never knowing when "the crystal ball" could call their name.

I am having the same problem

I am having the same problem as a whole bunch of others. When I copy and paste, a text box sits on top of the crystal ball. Did anyone find the cure?

Science/Technology

OMG! I downloaded this in the beginning of the year and didn't really use it until May. I teach Science/Technology to K-5th graders and they all were so engaged and responsive not knowing when their name would be coming up. I used it for vocabulary and review too. The kids loved using it in their own Mimio lessons they created. I am new to this position and it was quite a challenge to learn over 650 student names. This random name generator made it fun and personalized all my lessons. Great Job!

Even high schoolers love

Even high schoolers love this! I like it because students are called randomly. I showed this to one of our preschool teachers and she loved it also! It's for all ages.
Is there any way that I can keep students' names in the collection box? I would like this because I could just copy and paste to another presentation.
Thanks.

Saving Crstal Ball with names

I read the above postings, but not sure of the definitive answer. Can you save names in a ball so you don't have to put them in again every new time you use it?

Crystal Ball

I love this tool. Using this to randomly generate a name to call on keeps students on their toes. I also like that once it goes through all the names it says "No more names", so you know every name has displayed. Super!!

I am trying to make a word

I am trying to make a word document and copy and paste the names into the name box, but I am having the same problem as someone before. It sits on top of the crystal ball as a separate list of names. I cannot get it to work unless I type the names directly into the first page.

Crystal Ball

Once I opened it, the text box showed up,
enter the names separated by a comma. Then they will come up individually.

bill, joey, sally, cindy, etc, etc,

Once you have all the names in, you click here and it will randomly pick a name once you have gone through the list, it will tell you "no more names" you can click on the green "bubble" to start the list over.

I would have the names saved

I would have the names saved and already typed into a word file and then every day or class just cut and paste the list. This is especially helpful when you teach different classes or groups of students.

names in crystal ball

I made a Word list so I could copy and paste because I found the same frustration of leaving the page and all my typing went away. When I hit paste from my Word list, it comes up as a text box that sits overtop of the field. It does not let them go in. What am I doing wrong?

Deleting names?

Thank you for this, I'm having problems deleting individual names. It wants to delete the entire flash file. Is there an easy way to go back and delete names or letters?

delete

If you can see the crystal ball, look at the bottom and you will see a green button, click on that and you will be taken back to the first page. Once there you click on the textbox with all the names and delete or edit from there.
