GP6 - How do I present a slide or share an application window in a class meeting?
To share a Snapshot of an application window to others in a meeting:

  1. You must be joined to a live meeting and be the Presenter in the meeting. (Chromebook or Chrome browser GP6 users will be required to install a Chrome plug-in the first time you try to Present or Share in a class meeting. This installation is required only the first time.)
  2. Open the application you want to "share" (e.g., Word, PowerPoint, a picture viewer, etc.). Make sure it is showing what you want to show to others. (The application window may be hidden but may not be minimized.)
  3. To Add Slide, hover over the Home button and click the green + sign.
  4. Select Application Window Snapshot
  5. Select the application window you want to share. This immediately takes a Snapshot of the application window. It also immediately shares the application window Snapshot to the other viewers.
  6. If the slide is too large, adjust the scale (upper left) and Update Snap.

To change the Snapshot you are sharing:

  1. Adjust the content of the application window. (The application window may be hidden but may not be minimized.)
  2. In the slide reel (left side), make sure the App Window Slide (red camera icon overlay) is selected.
  3. Click Select Window (blue button on top of main slide area).
  4. Select the application window you want to share. This immediately takes a Snapshot of the application window. It also immediately shares the application window Snapshot to the other viewers.
  5. Repeat as desired.

To create new slides and share them:

  1. Adjust the content of the application window. (The application window may be hidden but may not be minimized.)
  2. In the slide reel (left side), make sure the App Window Slide (red camera icon overlay) is selected.
  3. Click Select Window (blue button on top of main slide area).
  4. Select the application window you want to share. This immediately takes a Snapshot of the application window. It also immediately shares the application window Snapshot to the other viewers.
  5. Use the Snap to Slide button to create a new slide from the contents of the selected application window.
  6. Adjust the contents of the application window, and Snap to Slide to create slides as needed.
  7. Notes
    • The Presenter in a meeting can Lock Current Slide (button is on the upper left for the Presenter in a meeting) to keep that slide visible to participants while the Presenter prepares a new slide.
    • To use Snap to Slide you must be selected to the App Window slide and not in Annotation mode.
    • The application window may be hidden but may not be minimized.
    • Use Snap Mask to crop your slide to just the content you need: After selecting the application window, use the left mouse key to click and draw a rectangular Mask on top of the image. Snap to Slide will now capture only the masked area.
    • For more details on creating new slides, see this information.
