    I’m happy
    I usually just right click and copy the picture (the larger the size of the picture, the better) and then paste it onto my board. Then, while I have it copied, if I want to put in my dictionary, I can go ahead and click the Boardmaker man, hit Alt V and paste the picture in. I've had trouble at times when importing as well. (Must have something to do with the type or quality of the picture I imported. If I paste a big version of the picture in, I get more quality in the picture, and it's less "pixilated".)

  • Amanda,

    Are you running version 6 of boardmaker, if you with the symbol finder open, you can drag and drop the image right into the symbol finder or button directly to import the image in. It would be something to try. Here are the steps below.

    1.Minimize or adjust the window size of Boardmaker so you can access the Windows Start menu in the bottom left corner.

    2.Select My Computer.

    3. Navigate to the directory that contains the digital picture file you wish to add to a button on the board.

    4. Select and hold the file then drag it toward the Windows taskbar at the bottom of your screen.

    5. Briefly hold the file over Boardmaker located in the Windows taskbar. The Boardmaker application will automatically move to the foreground of your screen and the directory that contained the file to the background.

    6. Once Boardmaker is active in the foreground, continue to drag your file to the desired button.

    7. Drop the file onto the button.

    Regards,
