3.1 Main Menu
The main menu - as previously stated - hubs together all the prime and essential features of HUBING NOTES.
To gather all the tools and features, it was developed with two different levels.
Usually the menu is on level 1, where you can see the main sets of features, upon the selection of one tool, level 2 of will appear, as shown on the figure. To return to the previous level, just select the centre of the main menu or the main tool.
If no movement is recorded within a minute, the menu will be minimized. To return to the maximized version, select again on the centre. This button will minimize or maximize the menu according to the situation.
The activation of the Selection tool allows for interactions with objects on the software interface. When disabled, it will allow contact with the desktop or other open applications, avoiding unnecessary minimization of HUBING NOTES.
HUBING NOTES provides a Collaboration mode which allows a set of users to annotate and create content simultaneously in the same canvas. By canvas we mean a single revealer that all the participants can jointly collaborate and work simultaneously on it, henceforth we will call this place a room. Imagine different participants connected to the room working together as one.
The HUBING NOTES collaboration mode requires the usage of the same wi-fi network between all participants and supports up to 10 simultaneous users in a single session.
How to begin collaboration session:
To start a collaboration session, go to the Collaboration menu and select the Start button.
One of the users must create a room, becoming automatically the host. Afterwards, all other participants will be able to join the session. Both processes are described in the step-by-step bellow.
Imagine the collaboration mode as a whiteboard, where each participant can write and work on the board. Just as a whiteboard everyone will be able to identify who made what, with their name appearing upon an action.
Both as a host or as a participant, to leave the room select the button stop collaboration in the main menu.
By default the revealer allows you to directly annotate over the opened applications. Since context is everything, HUBING NOTES will take a screenshot when the revealer is open, saving the background as well as the annotations.
Completely closed the revealer offers a whole canvas where one can create content such as presentations.
