New file format for Notebook software 9.5
SMART have launched a new version of their whiteboard software. It is important to note that the new Notebook software 9.5 has a new
file format that may present some compatibility issues in mixed version environments, and we recommend that you upgrade all your computers at
the same time to avoid these concerns.
Notebook files now feature a *.notebook extension (they are no longer *.xbk files)
- Gallery files now feature a *.gallery extension (they are no longer *.xbc files)
Notebook software 9.5 users can open older .xbk and .xbc files. Simply open the file as you normally would. It will be converted to the
new format when you save the file as a .notebook version.
Notebook software 9.1 users cannot open version 9.5 files that have .notebook and .gallery file extensions. A Notebook software 9.1 user can open a file created in version 9.5 if the file has been saved in an older format.
To save a Notebook file to an older format, select Save As > Save as type > SMART Notebook 9.0/9.1 (*.xbk) or SMART Notebook 8.0 (*.xbk).
When you save a file created in Notebook software 9.5, the file contents are preserved, but function as a static image. Notebook software 9.1 users can open and view all of the content created in the version 9.5 file, but cannot edit the file.
