Using SMART Notebook with Microsoft Word Software

Microsoft Word software is Ink Aware, which means that it's integrated with SMART Notebook. What you write or draw on the interactive product becomes a part of the Word document.

To write or draw in Microsoft Word software

  1. Display the Microsoft Word document you want to write in.

  2. Write or draw on the interactive screen.

The Aware Tools toolbar appears. Depending on your version of Microsoft Word, this toolbar either floats on top of the program or appears with the program's other toolbars.

NOTE: If the Aware Tools toolbar doesn't appear, select View > Toolbars > SMART Aware Toolbar in Microsoft Word software.

  1. Press to insert your notes or drawings into the Word document as graphics.


Press to convert your writing into typed text and insert it into the Word document.


Press to take a screen capture of your notes and the Word document.

The screen capture appears in a .notebook file.
