Importing questions from a PDF file

When you import questions from a PDF file, the SMART Response conversion utility interprets the numbering of the paragraphs. The software also recognizes key words when parsing the paragraphs. The software then converts the paragraphs into SMART Notebook assessment pages.


Ensure that you format the questions in your PDF file like the ones in PDF document formatting before you begin this procedure.
