Getting Started

Glass Mode

When Oktopus is opened, the Oktopus toolbar appears on the left hand side. By default, Oktopus will start with a transparent background, called Glass Mode.

Glass Mode enables annotation and the use of other tools over the current display, whether it’s an application, a web browser, or simply the Desktop. The Glass Mode layer also supports click-through, so there is no need to minimize Oktopus to work with other programs.

 

The Sidebar

 

 

File Options

 

 

 

 Creating a new lesson

When Oktopus opens, a new lesson file is automatically created. To create a new lesson at any point, select ‘File’, and choose ‘New’ from the dropdown.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A prompt will appear on-screen asking for the entry of a lesson name. Type a name for the lesson and select ‘OK’. The name can be changed later from the Slide Management tab.

 

 

 

Lesson Saving, Loading, and Printing

Select ‘Open’ to open an existing lesson. A file explorer window will appear to find and select the required lesson. Oktopus can open .wtzx files.

Select ‘Save’ to save the lesson. A file explorer window will appear and prompt where the file is to be saved in .wtzx format.

Select ‘Print’ to send the lesson slides to a printer.

The toolbar can also be maximized by clicking the right arrows / maximise button. This will initialise Aerial View.

Aerial View gives the full range of tools available for selection at a glance.

 

 

 

Click or tap a tool to open it.

 

Quick Tool Palette

The Quick Tool Palette provides quick access to useful tools, and acts as a right-click context menu for editing commands such as cut, copy, paste, and delete. The palette can be moved around by clicking or pressing the centre button and dragging it to the desired location.

Click or tap the centre button to toggle between a minimized and maximised state.

 

To show the Quick Tool Palette at any location, right-click on any Oktopus object or directly on the slide background, if one has been applied. On a touchscreen device, a right-click command is normally initiated by a pressing and holding.

The Quick Tool Palette will stay on the screen permanently in a minimized state unless it is dragged to the trash can. To show it again, choose Quick Tool Palette from the Settings menu.

 

Customizing the Quick Tool Palette

The Quick Tool Palette can be customized by dragging favourite, frequently used, or otherwise useful tools onto it.

  1. In the Tools section of the sidebar, tap and hold the tool for at least 1 second.
  2. Drag it near or onto the Quick Tool Palette. A “+” icon will appear.
