A4 Pages

Infinite canvas is great but a sense of A4 pages is sometimes required. So enable the 'Display A4 pages' option in the Settings. This will displayed ten A4 pages in a column. These A4 pages (technically: locked rectangles) helps to orginize your content, to navigate on the whiteboard and these pages will be exported in PDF export. To increase the number of the A4 pages from the default 10, change the number in this URL:

Move the Canvas by Arrows

You can move and navigate the canvas by the arrow keys. Modify the distance and the animation time by visiting this link: This link sets the distance to 200 pixel and the duration to 400 milliseconds. Adjust the parameters as you wish.

View Only Mode

You can turn the app into view only mode by the URL parameter viewonly=1 and turn back to normal mode with viewonly=0. Your browser will remember the last setup. Currently this parameter is not bound to boards: if viewonly=1, then you can't draw on any boards. If you are a tutor/presenter and want to share your board as view only mode, then you should insert '&viewonly=1' after the unique board link.

Disable Fullscreen label

At the middle of the top side of the screen, there is a clickable label: Fullscreen. You can hide this label by visiting this link: You can use the system hotkey for fullscreen, which is F11 on Windows and control+command+f on Mac.
