Using Conceptboard on an iPad or Tablet


Using Conceptboard on your tablet is great for when you’re on the go and need to review content away from your desk. We have optimized the web version for the iPad, so you can open your boards directly in the tablet’s browser!

Read on for some of our tips on how to get the most out of Conceptboard when using a tablet.

How to navigate on a tablet

You can move on boards by using two fingers or touch points to drag the board, no matter what tool mode you are in, and use a pinch or expand gesture to zoom in and out of the board.

To quickly find and navigate to different comments or tasks in the board, use the side navigation panel located on the left side of the board.

Adding files to the board on a tablet

You can use the Insert tab to take a photo or add an existing image to the board.

You can also use the Dropbox integration to add files to your boards. 

If you need to access any of the files that have been attached to the board, click on the board name and choose 'Downloads and exports'. In the downloads dialog, click and hold the file you would like to open and choose open in the new tab.

Removing content 

You can easily remove one item or entire sections from the board while working on the iPad. Zoom out and use the Select tool to select all items that you would like to remove and then click on the Trashcan button in the tool bar. This is also an easy way to clear the board.  

Text Boxes, Sticky Notes, and Headlines

When adding a sticky note, text box, or headline click and drag to the desired length. Click once inside a selected note to bring up the keyboard. When you’re done writing, hit the keyboard down to exit writing mode.

You can directly click and drag to create another note after exiting writing mode. To quickly create lots of sticky notes, use the duplicate icon in the toolbar. You can even select several sticky notes at a time when duplicating.

When in browse mode, you can click on any editable object (comments, sticky notes, text boxes, and headlines) to display the edit option. Click the edit text to switch to editing. 

Zoom in and click the pin icon to select a pinned item. 

Freehand scribbling on a board

For the smoothest writing, use a stylus and check your zoom level when using the scribble tool–depending on your tablet you may have a better performance if you zoom in between 100-200% percent.

The scribble tool automatically creates one object from the moment you start scribbling to when you stop or lift the stylus from the surface.  You can select a scribble and resize, change the color or line width.

When using the scribbling tool, the user experience depends very much on the internet speed and the computer or tablet being used. Also, please make sure your browser is up to date!
