New Features in XPress version 2.15

Improved Page Navigation

XPress version 2.15 features improvements made to page navigation. Page previews, located on the side menu, are now larger giving you an enhanced look at your inactive pages.

Move, Clone, and Delete Page Buttons

The move, clone, and delete page buttons now appear in the preview window. To use these buttons, place the cursor or tap on the active page. On inactive pages, only the move button will appear.

New/Add Page Button

The new page button has also been moved to the bottom of the pages section. To add a new page, simply click the New Page button as seen below. The new page will appear under the current active page.

We think these changes will make XPress more user friendly and feel a little more familiar for those new to our whiteboard software.

Open additional File Types (.pdf and .iwb)

XPress now gives users the ability to open PDF and IWB files. Use the open file button and view the additional files available. Select and click the open button to access.

PDFs will be set as the background and cannot be edited. For IWB files, XPress will detect and import different objects. This gives you more access and the option to edit these files in Xpress.

Improved Eraser

When erasing, a grey trail will now track the user’s gestures, indicating what will be removed. Release and the gray trail will erase.

Change Chart Colors

Users can customize charts even further, with the option to change primary and secondary colors. No more restrictions if you would like to change the XPress default color scheme. To do so; (1) Select your chart. (2) When the chart menu appears, click on the settings/gear icon. (3) Select the color you would like to change to.
