GP6 - How do I present GP6 Doc slides, Live Share or Snapshots in a class meeting?
  1. 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.)
  2. Open GP6 and join a meeting room.
  3. Become the Presenter (click the Present button if it is available or ask the meeting moderator (teacher) to make you the Presenter). (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.)
  4. GP6 Doc slides: If you have already created a GP6 Doc, in your GP6 Library tab select the Document and Version you want to present to the meeting Participants.
  5. Live Share (Application Window)
    1. While still selected to the Home slide, activate the Slide Lock button (above Slide Reel) to keep the Home view displayed for the other Participants while you prepare your presentation. (When the Slide Lock is activated, a red border will remain around the slide that Participants are currently viewing and a green border will be around the slide that is set to display to Participants once the Slide Lock is deactivated.)
    2. Use Add Slide to create a Live Share slide. (To see the Add Slide button, hover the cursor over the Home slide or any other slide, and click the gray + sign. You will also need to allow Full Edit mode, after which the + sign will turn green.)
    3. Follow the prompts to select an application window to share. (Note that many application windows cannot be shared. These unsharable windows will appear to be black in the selector window. In this case, you will need to select a display window to share -- see below.)
    4. Create a "mask" around the area you want to share by clicking and dragging to create a box. Adjust the size and position of the Mask.
    5. Click Live Share or CTRL/CMD-i to start sharing the masked region of your application window or display. (Note that some application windows will not update in Live Share. If this occurs, use Focused Capture to keep that application window in front and updating correctly.)
    6. With Live Share slide selected (green border) and Live Share started, click the Slide Lock button to deactivate the lock and allow the Live Share to be seen by the other Participants.
  6. Live Share (Display Window -- Two Displays)
    1. While still selected to the Home slide, activate the Slide Lock button (above Slide Reel) to keep the Home view displayed for the other Participants while you prepare your presentation. (When the Slide Lock is activated, a red border will remain around the slide that Participants are currently viewing and a green border will be around the slide that is set to display to Participants once the Slide Lock is deactivated.)
    2. Use Add Slide to create a Live Share slide. (To see the Add Slide button, hover the cursor over the Home slide or any other slide, and click the gray + sign. You will also need to allow Full Edit mode, after which the + sign will turn green.)
    3. Follow the prompts to select a display window to share.
    4. With two displays, move GP6 to the display that does not contain the area you will be sharing.
    5. If you plan to use Annotation in Live Share, position shared content in the upper right of the shared display window.
    6. Click Update Window to get a clean image of the display window. (Note that the standalone GP6 will automatically minimize, take a snapshot of the display, then restore. The Chrome GP6 will not automatically minimize, but no action is necessary if the area to be shared is on a different display from Chrome GP6.)
    7. Using the new image, create a "mask" around the area you want to share by clicking and dragging to create a box. Adjust the size and position of the Mask. (Note that smaller masks significantly improve performance for the presenter and audience.)
    8. Click Live Share or CTRL/CMD-i to start sharing the masked region of the display window.
    9. With Live Share slide selected (green border) and Live Share started, click the Slide Lock button or CTRL/CMD-l to deactivate the lock and allow the Live Share to be seen by the other Participants.
    10. When ready to end or pause, click the Slide Lock button or CTRL/CMD-l to activate the lock and freeze the image for the Participants, then click Pause or CTRL/CMD-o to pause the Live Share.
  7. Live Share (Display Window -- Single Display or Chromebook)
    1. While still selected to the Home slide, activate the Slide Lock button (above Slide Reel) to keep the Home view displayed for the other Participants while you prepare your presentation. (When the Slide Lock is activated, a red border will remain around the slide that Participants are currently viewing and a green border will be around the slide that is set to display to Participants once the Slide Lock is deactivated.)
    2. Use Add Slide to create a Live Share slide. (To see the Add Slide button, hover the cursor over the Home slide or any other slide, and click the gray + sign. You will also need to allow Full Edit mode, after which the + sign will turn green.)
    3. Follow the prompts to select the single display window to share.
    4. If you plan to use Annotation in Live Share, position shared content in the upper right of the shared display window.
    5. Click Update Window to get a clean image of the display window. (Note that the standalone GP6 will automatically minimize, take a snapshot of the display, then restore. The Chrome GP6 will not automatically minimize, so you must minimize Chrome immediately after clicking Update Window so that Chrome GP6 is not in the clean image. Then restore Chrome GP6 after the "snapshot" sound indicates the clean image is captured.)
    6. Using the new image, create a "mask" around the area you want to share by clicking and dragging to create a box. Adjust the size and position of the Mask. (Note that smaller masks significantly improve performance for the presenter and audience.)
    7. Minimize GP6 (standalone or Chrome) manually.
    8. Use CTRL/CMD-i keys to start sharing the masked region of the display window.
    9. With Live Share slide selected (green border) and Live Share started, use the CTRL/CMD-l keys to deactivate the lock and allow the Live Share to be seen by the other Participants.
    10. When ready to end or pause, use the CTRL/CMD-l keys to activate the lock and freeze the image for the Participants, then the CTRL/CMD-o keys to pause the Live Share.
  8. Snapshot
    1. While still selected to the Home slide, activate the Slide Lock button (above Slide Reel) to keep the Home view displayed for the other Participants while you prepare your presentation. (When the Slide Lock is activated, a red border will remain around the slide that Participants are currently viewing and a green border will be around the slide that is set to display to Participants once the Slide Lock is deactivated.)
    2. Use Add Slide to create a Snapshot slide. (To see the Add Slide button, hover the cursor over the Home slide or any other slide, and click the gray + sign. You will also need to allow Full Edit mode, after which the + sign will turn green.)
    3. Follow the prompts to select an application window or a display to "Snap". This immediately takes a Snapshot of the application window. It also immediately shares the application window Snapshot to the other viewers. (Note that many application windows cannot be snapped. they will appear to be black in the selector window.)
    4. Create a "mask" around the area you want to share by clicking and dragging to create a box. Adjust the size and position of the Mask.
    5. Click Copy to Slide or CTRL/CMD-period to create a new slide. (The slide width should not be wider than the red border when you turn on Annotation.)
    6. With the new slide selected (green border), click the Slide Lock button or CTRL/CMD-l to deactivate the lock and allow the new slide to be seen by the other Participants.
