    Converting smartboard pages

    One of our teachers has been given a disk with Smartboard flipcharts on but we only have Promethean boards. She was told there was a program that can convert the pages but I can’t see anything on Google. Is there such a thing?

    just open the xbk files with your Activstudio/Activprimary software

    http://uk.prometheankb.com/article.a...222384&p=10121

    v2.5 software can open notebook files created in up to version 9.1 of smart software, v3 software can open any notebook file.

    Thanks. I’ve tried that and the file selector can’t see the notebook file. The file in question ends with .notebook. I can't see any xbk files.

    In the open file dialog try changing the "file of type" selector to "smart notebook files". If you don't have that then you may need to update, what version of promethean software are you using?

    Re: Converting smartboard pages

    yup, definately works, that's what I have installed.

    menu, open file, from another location, click "files of type", choose smart, choose file.

    it depends what version of the smart software your file was created in tho, if it was created in a version later than 9.1 then you'll need activprimary 3 (free download from website for existing customers)

    I must have been saved using a new version of Smartboard as Acrivpriamry V3 opens it.

    Cheers.
