  1. Where did Dual Page Display go?? It is the key reason I have been using Notebook for years, when every other professor I know uses PowerPoint.

    You'd think SMART would try to keep features that distinguish it from the competition. I guess I'll need to make the switch once Notebook 22 is no longer available.

  2. When exporting a Notebook file to PDF in Notebook 23, it only gives option to name the file... no options anymore. PLEASE bring back the intermediate options window which allowed editing which pages to convert, titles, date, page orientation, etc.

    In Notebook 22 and earlier, the "Export PDF" actually opened a Printer window. Because of that, we moved the print functionality to the Print menu option. Export turned into a pure "turn this file into a PDF" without the ability to target specific pages. We've received a LOT of feedback about losing that feature, but I suspect users don't know that they can still do it under Print. I want to make sure that the functionality under Print meets teachers' needs. Would anyone be willing to try the Print option in Notebook 23 and confirm whether it performs how you want?

  3. The latest update no longer allows me to drag the cursor over a number of objects on a page and select them as a group to edit / move etc.

  4. The new equation editor program is terrible! You can't input spaces anymore. The font is weird and makes everything too close and exponents look misplaced. The upper-level operators are missing like limit notation and some integral operators. I can not longer use this program without a better equation editor program as a math teacher. The extend page option needs to come back and the screen capture as well. What a terrible update for educators.

  5. I find tables to bee completely unuseable in Notebook 23.
    Text has to be dragged and dropped in and out of cells to be edited. For students this is basicly impossible to wrap their head around. Why can't you just type directly into the cells? Why can't you edit text inside the cells??
    Moving text from one cell to the next somehow creates a copy instead of moving the text. Formatting text once it's been inserted into the cells is impossible unless the text is removed first. Resizing table cells once anything has been added to the table at all…

  6. Fyi. . . If you, like many, are desperately missing your favorite Notebook features that were for some reason taken away in NB 23, you can go to "View" and then "Open in Notebook 22" and your favorite things that were so useful for lesson planning/creation, teaching, and learning will be there again! Hello screen capture, SMART Recorder, Concept Mapping, and more! Maybe if everyone does this, they'll get the hint : )

  8. In Smart Notebook 23, the "Align" section is missing from the View menu. In version 22 this was still present. Why has it disappeared? Can I have it back?

  10. Losing the masking capabilities of Smart Notebook was an awful decision! It is one of the few reasons I still use Smart and have not switched over to Google Slides like many of my colleagues have. Luckily I can still run the old version and have that ability, but just might have to consider finally being done with my Smart Notebook.

  11. The export as PDF fails when using Notebook 23.0. Instead, the Notebook must be opened to 22.0 then exported. It would be nice to not have this extra step.

  13. YOU TOOK AWAY MASKING AN IMAGE?!?! You only just recently introduced this option after never having a way to crop images. Taking it away is a huge step back.

  14. You can no longer add text to Shapes in version 23. Also when you have links to a place in the document they no longer work on individual objects when they are grouped. These were all features that worked in previous builds.

  15. The "Align" feature has been removed from the latest version: it has become impossible to easily and efficiently align objects (the top of one with the bottom of another for example) ; impossible as well to align objects with the center of the page (because we can't know where the center of the page is anymore!) ; impossible to draw perfectly horizontal or vertical lines (what's the point of being able to draw lines then?)...

    This feature is essential and exists in other competitor softwares, so why no longer on Notebook? Moreover, it always has been an option: you could…

  17. Stability of 23.2 is poor. I have numerous crashes, losing critical edits. Also on start up the page index is blank and only appears by selecting attachments and going back to page index.

  20. Before when you would type, you could go to Format, Paragraph, Line Spacing and change the amount of space between your text. This is a very important feature that was taken out. Without it, you cannot fit the words with images exactly how you want to display them. Please bring this feature back.
