What are the system requirements for using SMART Board Notebook files?

To use the SMART Board Notebook files, your computer should have SMART Notebook Software, version 9.5 or later installed.  If you have a modern SMART Board in your classroom, chances are you already have this software installed on your computer. If you don't, you can download it from SMART's website.


When I download, my browser saves the files as a .ZIP zip file.

If your browser tries to save the Notebook files as a zip file, please try it another way

1.  Right-click the Notebook link you want to download.

2.  Choose "Save Target As"

3.  When it asks you to name the file, add ".notebook" to the end of your file name.  (This will help your computer understand that it's a Notebook file, not a Zip file.)

4.  Go to the place where you saved the file and open it.



When I open a Notebook file, I see lots of random letters on the screen.

If you're seeing lots of letters, your computer is probably trying to open the files as a "Notepad" file, not a "Notebook" file.

You need to have Notebook Software 9.5 or later installed.  (The most common reason for this problem is that people do not have SMART Notebook installed and they try to open the file.)

If you are sure you have the correct software installed, use the following steps to download the file properly:

1.  Right-click the Notebook link you want to download.
2. Choose "Save Target As"
3. When it asks you to name the file, add ".notebook" to the end of your file name.
4. Go to the place where you saved the file and right-click it.  Choose "open with SMART Notebook."
5.  Check the box to set SMART Notebook as the default program for this file type.


I am using Apple's Safari browser and the files will not download correctly.

For some reason, SMART Notebook files do not download correctly for people using Apple's Safari browser.  If you're using Apple Safari, please use Internet Explorer or Firefox to download the Notebook files.


I don't have a SMART Board.  Can I use SMART Notebook files?

Yes, but it's a little complicated.  You would need to go to SMART's website and download "Notebook Viewer."  It is a free download, but they make you enter contact information and you won't be able to save or edit files.


I don't have a SMART Board, but I do have a Promethean Board.  Do you have Promethean FlipChart on your site?

Sorry, not at this time. We hope to add Promethean Flipcharts in the near future.
