Share a whiteboard (iPhone/iPad)
Mobile whiteboard lets you capture and share your ideas in real time for more engaging discussions during any join.me meeting hosted on an iPad or iPhone. You can also prepare whiteboards in advance to share during a meeting.
- Tap the Whiteboard icon in the top menu.
- Choose the whiteboard you want to share.
- To share an existing whiteboard, tap the item you want to share.
- To create a new whiteboard, tap + add a whiteboard.
- Tap Share.
Results: All participants see the whiteboard. Only the meeting organizer can edit the whiteboard.
Whiteboard tools are displayed along the bottom of your iPad screen.
|Insert whiteboard icons or photos. A library of whiteboard icons is provided. Photos can be retrieved from your own photo library. When inserting photos you must allow join.me to access your photos.
|You can undo (and redo) up to 20 previous actions while the whiteboard is open.
|Select objects on the whiteboard.
|To create a text box, tap the Text tool and drag to the desired location on the whiteboard. The device's keyboard opens. Additional icons allow you to change font, size, alignment, fill color, text color, outline color.
|Draw lines and elbows. Additional icons allow you to change line properties (arrow, dashed or solid, color, and more). Lines and elbows can be used to connect objects. See the "Connect objects" section, below.
Tip: Double-tap to lock the tool and select multiple objects. When locked, the icon is underlined.
|Activate the eraser. Once selected, the eraser stays selected so you can delete multiple objects.
|Move (pan) the canvas with one finger.
Tip: To move the canvas without the Hand tool, drag with two fingers.
|Activate the laser pointer. Tap and hold anywhere to draw attention to a specific part of the whiteboard.
|Select an object and tap the wrench tool to access the following options: Duplicate, Copy, Layers, Properties, Delete.
Note: You can also tap and hold an object to access this menu.
|Fit to screen / 100%
|Due to the whiteboard's "infinite" canvas, you may move so far off screen that you get lost. When this happens, tap Fit to Screen to show the entire whiteboard on the iPad screen. Tap 100% to zoom to 100% resolution.
| This icon gives you access to a number of useful options.
Use common iPad gestures to get around the whiteboard's infinite canvas. These gestures are always available.
- Drag with two fingers
- Move (pan) the canvas. This is the same as the Hand tool but is easier to use when another tool is already selected.
- Double tap
- Access an object's properties
- Spread two fingers
- Zoom in
- Pinch two fingers
- Zoom out
- Tap and drag
- Tap and drag to move objects around the whiteboard, or from the Library onto the whiteboard.
- Tap and drag at corner
Tap and drag on the blue dots of a selected object to increase or decrease its size.
Tip: If you see a menu of options (duplicate, copy, etc.) when you intend to tap and drag, try to move your finger as soon as you tap the object.
Use the Line and Elbow tools to connect icons, shapes, images, and text.
Each object has potential connection points around its border. The number and location of the connection points depends on the type of object.
A magnifying glass is displayed when you draw a line or elbow connector towards another object. As you get closer to a potential connection point, the endpoint will “snap” to the nearest connector. The connector endpoint changes from blue to red when it is connected.
- A blue dot at the end of the line means it is not connected, and a red dot means it is connected.
- Grouping does not affect connecting to objects in a group.
- You cannot connect Lines or Elbows to drawing objects.
- Multiple lines can share the same connection point.
