your pet peeve is mine as well.
Thought maybe it was just me.

Sounds like a software issue -version or something. I use activinspire with the Promethean board & can write over any document.

My pet peeve: selecting things in a diagram - sometimes it doesn't want to select JUST what I want it to select, and selects everything. And, when I want it to select everything, it only selects a few things. It tends to always do the opposite of what I want, and doesn't follow the drag right and down vs. drag left and up convention that many programs use.

Subject: RE: White Boards Promethean vs SMART

We have several activ boards but they are all wall mounted. They were purchased several years ago from a grant. They seem to work fine. They have their own quirks to be sure but minimal trouble that I am aware of. My own pet peeve is that I have to convert my word files to pdf and then use the camera tool to paste them into the active studio program in order to be able to write on them and save them. A colleague recently told me that I can write on PowerPoint files. I am thinking of trying to convert word to PP for display. The SMART boards don?t require this work around as near as I know. We have both systems here at TaconicHills. Likely each system has its pros and cons.

Hi All:

My school purchased the top of the line mobile Promethean Board last year.

We've had a huge amount of problems that, after multiple visits, are still not fixed.

Apparently, we should have bought SMART boards.

Has anybody else had problems with Promethean?

If so, were you able to get them fixed?

We noticed it Joe. I don't recall other times when that has happened.

Did anyone else notice they asked a question that they asked on the A2T Regents that was pretty much the same exact picture/problem as a part III on the June 2005 Math B? Has this happened before?
