ActivInspire - 1.6

The new version of ActivInspire 1.6 is available to download from Promethean Planet from today, 17th October 2011. The new version has several new enhancements including:

  • A new 'Equation Editor' to enable equations to be added to a flipchart page and to Questions
  • Automatic 'Check for Updates', so that users are prompted to get the latest version
  • The ability to import questions into Question Manager from Microsoft Excel
  • Additional intelligence features such as remembering the last 'Colour' / 'Pen Width' used and the 'Revealer' position
  • The addition of vertical text capability in appropriate environments
  • Many more usability enhancements based on valuable feedback from our existing user base

ActivInspire v.1.6.43431 - More Detailed Specs & Functionality Changes

  • Pen tool remembers last used colour next time the program is started.
  • Pen tool remembers last used width next time the program is started.
  • Can change pen tool cursor so that is displayed above the annotation, below the annotation or it is switched off completely.
  • The select colour used in page browser has been changed so it is clearer which pages are selected.
  • Can import questions into question manager from Microsoft Excel files (Windows Only).
  • There is a new right click menu when the pen tool is selected to enable user to change to select tool quickly.
  • Vertical text can now be added to the flipchart page. This is a separate tool from the existing text tool. It is available for Windows users only when on a Japanese OS or when ActivInspire is run in Japanese. It can be selected from Tools menu or by adding the button to the main toolbox.
  • Equation Editor: A new tool is available to allow you to create equations and add them into the flipchart page. These can be edited once on the page.
  • Equations into Questions: A new button is available on question and option text boxes when creating questions. These open the equation editor.
  • Auto Update: From 1.6 onwards the program will automatically check for updates when you start it up. If updates are available it will display a prompt so you can choose whether to update immediately or not. This can be switched off in settings if you don't want to do this every time you start the application.
  • Default time for self paced tests has been increased to 5 minutes. This time is still editable but helps new users who are still learning the self paced functionality.
  • Page notes formatting is now separate from flipchart page text formatting. The text properties used in the page notes are remembered the next time page notes are used. Changing the text formatting on the flipchart page will not affect the text properties in the page notes and vice versa.
  • It is now possible to word seed numeric answers.
  • When hovering over a word seed object a tooltip is displayed that conveys voting information.
  • Ruler Angle: The ruler now displays a positive and negative angle when rotating.
  • Reveal Tool: Page tools setting is automatically set to revealer for that page when the revealer position is set. In previous versions it would remain at As before meaning it would take the tool setting from the previous page when it should have forced the reveal tool on.
  • Change the outline width of shape and connector objects - If you have a shape or connector object selected you can change the outline width by using the pen width tools. Either click on the pre-selected width or use the width scroll bar and the outline will be immediately updated.
  • Create Shapes from Centre. The user input setting 'Create shapes by dragging from' setting is used to determine whether shapes are drawn from the top left or the centre. It is now possible to use the right click option to create a shape using the opposite method as that currently set. For example, you may want the majority of your shapes to be drawn from the top left but your circles to be drawn from the centre. In this instance have the setting as Top Left but use the right click button when drawing your circles and they will draw from the centre.
  • Enhancement to the number of characters allowed in a self paced test question. You are no longer limited to entering 25 characters into answers on a self paced question set. Instead you are limited to 512 characters in total - including the question and all the answers. A helpful character count has been introduced so you can see how many characters you have used.
