Q:  What file types can be converted to MimioStudio?

A:  Promethean ActivInspire, SMART Notebook, and Microsoft PowerPoint files can be converted.  Specifically those with the following extensions; *.flipchart, *.notebook, *.ppt, *.pptx, *.pdf, *.iwb, *.doc, & *.docx.

Q:  How accurate is the conversion process?  Will I need to reformat my work?

A:  Depending on the complexity of the files you submit, some files may need additional formatting post-conversion.  Please be sure to review the converted files for accuracy before presenting them to students.
