Chapter 16 FAQ
1. While installing the software, the installation interface window is stretched;
and meantime, when I start the software, it prompts unwonted error message.
What can I do?
This problem will not occur if your computer is in normal use. If it occurs, the main
reason is DPI of display is too high. Please right click windows desktop blank and get
the “Properties” menu, choose “Settings” and then “Advanced”, change DPI into
“Normal size (96dpi)” at DIP Setting. Then restart the computer.
2. After using the function of Screen Record, I cannot see some windows in the
saved recorded video, such as floating toolbar, the annotating window in
Windows Mode. How can I do?
It is because the system only records the operating area by default in order to control
the size of video files. If you want to record all windows and the floating toolbar, then
before recording please click
Screen Record, and then click
Options on the
secondary toolbar of Screen Record, select “Record all areas”.
3. When operating and writing on the whiteboard with the software, the system
response is slow, or the stroke is intermittent. What’s up?
The computer is not under normal running or the memory is occupied too much.
Please close some applications or restart the computer.
Or the operating or writing force is uneven. Sometimes the force is too light to be
sensed.
4. When inserting a video file into the whiteboard page and playing it, the video
images cannot be displayed, but a black screen there. How to handle it?
1) The video file doesn’t exist at all, please select and insert again.
2) The video file has been damaged already, please repair and reinsert it.
3) Hardware acceleration is not enough, please do as follow: right click windows
desktop blank, “properties>Settings>Advanced>Troubleshoot”, and set “Hardware
acceleration” from “None” to 3rd rank.
5. While using the “Spotlight” tool, the concentrated area cannot be highlighted,
what’s up?
The reason is the color quality in system is not enough to support this software
function, please right click windows desktop blank, get the “ Properties” menu, select
“Settings” and then change “Color quality” to “Highest (32bit)”.
Other questions, please consult our service center or local dealer.
