Instructions and Information on Specific Verbs (Commands)

Using the Encore Object Editor

From within the enCore Object Editor, you can easily create the Web Projector, describe it, and prepare the web pages you wish to have loaded into the projector for viewing.  These web pages can also be loaded from the text-command side of enCore, but the Xpress Editor provides an even easier interface.

To load web page slides, choose Edit Web Slides from the Edit Option drop down list from within the Xpress Editor. You can then copy and paste in the URLs that you want loaded into the web projector, and click on the Save Changes button to save your changes.

Note: After each specific webpage address (URL), you must hit ENTER to include a line break. Each webslide should be in only one line.

Note About Browsing and the Web Projector
