GP6 - How do I create a GP6 Document?
A GP6 Document is a set of pages or slides. Currently only teachers need to create GP6 Documents. If you are a student who wants to share an application or image in class, please go to these other instructions.

Create a GP6 Document

  1. Open GP6. You must be connected to the internet and logged into GP6. If you are already joined to a meeting room, you must also be the Presenter in that meeting.
  2. Click the "folder" button (next to Logout).
  3. Select New Document, add a Title, and click Create.
  4. Use Add Slide to create pages (slides). (To see the Add Slide button, hover the cursor over the Home slide or any other slide, and click the green + sign.)
  5. When you click the Add Slide button, you have multiple options.
    • You can open a blank Whiteboard.
    • You can directly import an image as a slide.
    • The most powerful way to add pages is to use an Application Window Snapshot slide (see below).

Application Window Snapshot

  1. Open GP6. You must be connected to the internet and logged into GP6. If you are already joined to a meeting room, you must also be the Presenter in that meeting.
  2. Click the "folder" button (next to Logout).
  3. 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.
  4. Click Add Slide (see above)
  5. Select Application Window Snapshot
  6. Select the application window you want to share. This immediately takes a Snapshot of the application window. (If you are the Presenter in a live meeting, it also immediately shares the application window Snapshot to the other viewers.)
  7. Use the Snap to Slide button or the CTRL/CMD-period key to create a new slide from the contents of the selected application window.
  8. Adjust the contents of the application window, and Snap to Slide to create slides as needed.
  9. Notes
    • 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.
    • You can Annotate on pages (slides) that you create, but you must flatten the Annotation for it to be saved with the slide.
    • Slides in the slide reel can be moved (drag and drop), deleted (hover over slide and click red "X"), and recovered (from the Trash).
    • GP6 Documents automatically save to the cloud as they are built and modified, so there is no "Save" command. To protect a Version of a Document from further editing, Lock that Version in the Version Properties. Once a Version is Locked it cannot be unlocked, and any changes to it will create a new Version.
    • To share a Document Version to another GP6 user, first Lock that Version, then copy the Version ID from the Version Properties. Then follow these instructions. (Note that the original owner of a Document can always access all Versions, even if the Version belongs to another user.)
