WizTeach 3 – Multi Pen

Posted in Blog, New Features on June 12, 2013 by ian

We’re happy to announce that we’ve added Multi Pen mode for all our WizTeach for Windows users. Multi Pen mode is a really cool way to share your desktop and collaborate with someone who is beside you, using multiple mice. If you haven’t already done so, you’ll need to update WizTeach to the latest version.

Here’s how it works:

1) To activate Mutli Pen mode, click the Tools icon, and from the Settings menu, select Multi Pen. You’ll notice at this stage that your mouse pointer will change colour and that some tools which can’t be used in Multipen mode will be greyed-out.

2) Select a tool. If you select the pencil tool, your drawings will appear in the same colour as your mouse pointer. To stop drawing, click the cursor icon on the WizTeach paw.


Now for the fun part…

When you want to share control with someone, simply plug in another USB mouse! This could be a wired mouse, a wireless RF or Bluetooth mouse, a graphics tablet, or our own Q7 wireless presenter tablet. If you are using a laptop, your touchpad could be used as an additional pointer too.

When you want to exit this mode, click the big X at the top left of the screen. This area is also useful if you need to keep tabs on how many devices are connected. We hope you enjoy using this new functionality!
