Good morning Andreas. Nice to have you here today.

03:29 - Peggy George
I didn't mention he was a Google Certified Trainer! :-)

03:39 - Peggy George
Our Livebinder for today:

03:46 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
This is a great topic!!!

04:01 - Peggy George
online tools have changed my life!!!

04:10 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
Ever since Apple discontinued ClarisWorks, I've always felt handicapped

04:17 - @bcdtech Maureen
I used LucidPress in one of my grad classes and want it to be used more by my upper elementary kids, GAFE school.

04:24 - Peggy George
He did an awesome presentation on LucidChart and I included it in our Livebinder today!

04:56 -
Very interesting topic!

04:59 - Peggy George
We had an earlier webinar on LucidChart with Brad Hanks and that link is also in the Livebinder :-)

05:06 - @bcdtech Maureen
Easy to use... reminds me of Publisher in some ways

05:19 - Peggy George
so true!!

05:28 - Peggy George
Publisher didn't work on my Macs!

06:03 - @bcdtech Maureen
Online tools work so much better- no platform silliness - beautiful online, embedded or printed

06:05 - @plnaugle (Paula)
My principal does weekly memo on MS Pub and I can't open it properly on my Mac.

06:08 - Peggy George (Website for Andreas Johansson)

06:21 - Peggy George (Andreas Johansson on Twitter)

06:31 - Peggy George

06:33 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
Wow! THe chat already a 100 MPH...

06:49 - Patti Ruffing
loaded pretty fast

06:50 - @plnaugle (Paula)

06:50 - Lorie Moffat

06:59 - @bcdtech Maureen
not a GAFE school Paula? Even we have a shared doc for daily bulletin

07:27 - Peggy George

07:37 - @plnaugle (Paula)
No Maureen we are not a GAFE school unfortunately. :(

07:55 - @bcdtech Maureen
We're already up to 12° here :-)

08:21 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
Hi, Peggy :) Happy Saturday - Valentine's Day <3

08:32 - Peggy George
that is so user friendly!

08:38 - Peggy George
Hi Glenn! Welcome!

09:17 - Peggy George
Such a busy guy!!! That is a huge PD day for his district that he has been preparing for!

09:26 - @plnaugle (Paula)
It is 58 degrees here in NOLA and heading to 68 today. Great for the Mardi Gras parades this weekend.

09:59 - Peggy George
nice clean images :-) love it!

10:12 - Dotty
💝appy Valentine Day to all teachers and non teachers .

10:21 - Peggy George
so great that we can collaborate on these documents!

10:25 - Peggy George
seeing your popup

10:26 - @plnaugle (Paula)
See we're seeing it.

10:51 - Peggy George
much easier if you don't have to add everyone via email--just use the link!

10:52 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
Love that sharing feature for collaboration!

11:18 - Peggy George (LucidPress Newsletter Software)

11:42 - tam 1
tnx for link

12:23 - @bcdtech Maureen
I like that it is printable- it is a way to include all preferences. Sooner or later they will get tired of clicking on a piece of paper

12:43 - Peggy George
are there lots of fonts to choose from?

12:54 - Peggy George
I agree Maureen :-)

13:03 - Peggy George
great! thanks!

13:36 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
Wow these publishing options are awesome

13:57 - Andreas Johansson

13:59 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
Truly "next-gen MS Publisher"

14:14 - Peggy George
great that it checks your URL for you! Saves you from creating a URL you've already used :-)

14:20 - Peggy George
Definitely Wes!

14:35 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
Or "web 2.0 MS Publisher for all platforms"

14:53 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
That's awesome -- choice in format

15:00 - Peggy George
good to know about legal documents requiring 300dpi

15:24 - Peggy George
yes! please keep typing your questions in the chat!

15:40 - Patti Ruffing
what are the page sizes available? can you make a page long enough to make an infographic?

16:00 - Peggy George
can you insert images and embed videos in the newsletter?

16:11 - Peggy George
Welcome Pat! Always great to see you!

17:26 - Peggy George
I love the idea of embedding videos in the newsletter because it helps people to see the value of an online newsletter. Can't view it in the printed copy. :-)

17:42 - Pat aka Loonyhiker
Hi Peggy. Sorry I'm late.

17:51 - Peggy George
no problem!!

18:06 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
It's like Pages Layout Format

18:08 - Peggy George
Our Livebinder for today is:

18:13 - Dusanka Galecic

18:39 - Peggy George
Could you create a school or class yearbook with LucidPress?

18:56 - Peggy George
WOW! That is a big list of fonts!!

19:00 - @bcdtech Maureen
If you use a funky font does it embed so that others can print it as well?

19:01 - Dejan Kreculj
so small :(

19:27 - Peggy George
you can uncheck the box that says "scale to fit" at the top of the sharing screen and it will be larger

20:38 - Dejan Kreculj

20:50 - Peggy George
yes you had a font that was available in Google but not necessarily on my computer :-) Had to download and install Rock Salt :-)

21:28 - Peggy George
the two column feature is really helpful! automatic spacing!

21:28 - Dotty
Does this work well on a Chromebook?

21:46 - Peggy George (LucidPress Demo-Try it out)

22:17 - Dotty

22:28 - Doug Henry
Internet Exploder!

22:42 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
So many great features - I love the idea of being able to easily create & send out a monthly technology newsletter and model the tool for teachers.

22:45 - Peggy George
hahaha ==the Doug we know and love!! :-)

23:10 - Peggy George
fantastic that you can upload your own images!

23:28 - Dejan Kreculj
where is cat? :)

23:51 - Peggy George
wow! you can edit your photo/image right in the site! That's really helpful!

24:14 - @plnaugle (Paula)
If a student created a LucidChart can they then embed it into their blog?

24:23 - Dejan Kreculj
from Google disc?

24:55 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman
I might have missed this, but can you hyperlink the image?

25:09 - Dejan Kreculj

25:20 - Dejan Kreculj

25:24 - Peggy George
later...can you show us how you would bring in a Lucidchart document into a Lucidpress document?

25:33 - Peggy George
great question Glenn!

25:55 - Peggy George
this is so exciting!! so many editing features!!

26:40 - Dejan Kreculj
great tool

26:42 - Peggy George
aha! download your chart from Lucidchart and then upload it to Lucidpress.

26:55 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
does the text wrap?

27:01 - Peggy George

27:17 - Patti Ruffing
if you have a lucid chart published online and then embed that into a lucid press document, will the lucid press doc update automatically if changes are made to the chart or is it static?

27:18 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Does the text wrap around the image?

27:55 - Peggy George
it's a static image

27:55 - Dejan Kreculj
For text only the English alphabet?

28:14 - Dejan Kreculj
or cyrilic

28:19 - Peggy George
so you just need the URL for a youtube video and not the embed code??

28:27 - Dejan Kreculj

28:28 - Nenad Đpić

28:50 - Peggy George
so glad you asked that Dejan!! great to know that you can upload your own fonts!

29:20 - Peggy George

29:30 - Tiziana Angiolini

29:38 - Peggy George
can you adjust the size of the video?

29:52 - Patti Ruffing
so cool

29:58 - Dejan Kreculj
cool !

30:05 - Peggy George
fantastic!!!! we don't have to play with an embed code to resize it!!

30:14 - Dejan Kreculj

30:19 - @plnaugle (Paula)

30:33 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman #2
My Internet cut out on me for a few minutes - did anyone answer the question, can you hyperlink images?

30:33 - Delaine 1
Great to know

30:41 - Peggy George
so you can move between two columns and a single column on the same page??

30:54 - Patti Ruffing
maybe send the video to the back

31:11 - Dejan Kreculj
OMG, my cat :(

31:17 - Peggy George
glad you tried that rearranging! good to know!

31:38 - Peggy George
totally agree!!! awesomeness for ease of inserting videos!

32:30 - Peggy George
he's demonstrating all of these features in a newsletter but they have many other choices (pamphlets, brochures, magazines, flyers, etc.)

33:48 - Peggy George
do you have to worry about citing images in your newsletter? clutters up the page :-(

34:05 - @bcdtech Maureen
Handy to link back to school website etc

34:11 - Peggy George

34:17 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman #2
Got it ;)

34:31 - Patti Ruffing
I would imagine you could hyperlink the credit below the image if it is published live, like the traditional format for CC images

35:26 - Peggy George
I wanted to avoid having the text show up on the newsletter for the citation. Guess you could make it the hyperlink for the photo.

35:29 - @bcdtech Maureen
If you use the google search in lucidpresss- can you use search tools- labled for reuse? Or no?

35:43 - @wfryer Wes Fryer
Bear grass?

35:44 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri

35:47 - Glenn Hervieux @sisqitman #2
What a great idea to create a collection to share out in G. Drive.

35:58 - Peggy George
is that Sweden?

36:11 - Andreas Johansson

36:15 - Andreas Johansson

36:23 - Andreas Johansson
Rapeseed = Canola

36:30 - Peggy George
no bear grass :-) not beer :-) that's really common in Glacier National Park!

36:31 - Sharon Gullett
Maureen. Good question about copyright in image search

37:20 - Peggy George
I included a great tutorial in our Livebinder for integrating Lucidpress and Google apps. (LucidPress tutorial with Google App by Noel Erskine, Technology Coordinator Norris School District, Firth, Nebraska)

37:33 - @bcdtech Maureen
way more functional than tables in docs

37:41 - Peggy George
absolutely Maureen!

37:52 - Patti Ruffing
tables in Google Docs need a lot of improvement

38:10 - Sharon Gullett
I'm loving Lucid Press. Later will you talk about the difference between free and paid access.

38:39 - Peggy George
is the paid version a subscription?

38:47 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
But tables are great for collaboration discussions live with students each taking a row. We use it all the time.

39:14 - Nenad Đpić
There are some problem with legal patent for merging in tables or something, not sure.

39:27 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Thank you for that!

39:27 - Patti Ruffing
public school only?

39:36 - Patti Ruffing

39:48 - Andreas Johansson

39:52 - Peggy George
if you have the paid version of LucidChart (from Brad Hank's webinar) does that work for LucidPress too?

39:53 - Patti Ruffing
ok we know brad

40:17 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
They are separate.

40:19 - Peggy George
so we email brad for educator access?

41:23 - Peggy George
Brad Hanks <>

41:45 - Peggy George (LucidPress Online Poster Maker)

42:07 - Peggy George
the templates are great for jumpstarting a document :-) very helpful!

42:54 - Peggy George
that is a beautiful template!!! very inspiring!

42:55 - Nenad Đpić

43:23 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri

43:34 - Peggy George
can you get an embed code to add your newsletter to a blog?

43:45 - Peggy George

44:09 - Peggy George

44:10 - @bcdtech Maureen
I've added them to blogger and to wikispaces

44:23 - @wfryer on my iPhone
I'm going to share this with our school secretary is continuing to do our newsletter in Microsoft publisher!

44:29 - Peggy George (LucidPress Flyer Maker)

44:39 - Peggy George (LucidPress Pamphlet Maker)

44:55 - @wfryer on my iPhone
Sorry I have to run, but thanks for a great presentation

45:39 - Peggy George
any further questions that Andreas can answer??? Please type them in the chat.

46:24 - @bcdtech Maureen
Can he tell us if the image search within lucidpress does a cc search or is it a wide open google search?

46:36 - Peggy George
is there an age requirement for students? over 13 years?

47:12 - Delaine 1
Thanks so much! Great stuff!

47:34 - @bcdtech Maureen
Since we have GAFE and have parents sign off- we use these into lucid press too

47:49 - Peggy George
thanks! Students under 13 can't create own account but if they have Google (GAFE) account they can access it that way.

48:19 - Peggy George
so easy!!

48:33 - Peggy George

48:36 - @bcdtech Maureen
You can also see it right on the create new when you are in google docs... it's a choice

48:42 - Sofia Segurola Calderon
Even if email is not activated in apps 4 education?

48:55 - Sofia Segurola Calderon
For students

49:28 - @bcdtech Maureen
Yes Sofia- we do not activate email for under grade 7

49:30 - Sofia Segurola Calderon

50:14 - Peggy George
Can you repeat the information about how people can get the free Lucidpress account as an educator? Do we email Brad Hanks?

50:33 - Sofia Segurola Calderon
Many sites request email confirmation

51:07 - Peggy George
I was asking about teacher's accounts--not necessarily in Google.

51:37 - Peggy George
to get the full Lucidpress version as an educator :-)
