There's Got to Be a Better Way! Copy Notebook Page
Tip #6 for new users of SMARTboard/Notebook: I begin a Notebook file for a lesson on research paper for my 8th grade and a different introductory file for my 6th grade. Now it occurs to me that my review page in the 8th grade file would work very well for other class too. I select all; then copy—uh-oh, text and images are locked. Up to Edit > Select all locked items, then command-u to unlock. Copy all; then to the 6th grade file, add a new page, then paste. Finally, add the page background from the Gallery or Format > Page background again. Nine steps—there’s got to be a better way! There is: Line up the 2 Notebook files so that the thumbnails show. Just drag the thumbnail of the page to be copied into the other file. Done.
