Can I use the pen feature in PowerPoint to annotate on a slide using your app?

I haven't downloaded your app yet, but I'm a teacher and I'm looking for an app that will allow me to write on a PowerPoint in presentation view using the pen feature. Will this feature work with your app?

Yes, you can use pen feature of PowerPoint when it's in presentation mode while connecting.

When you are using pen feature, you also need to tap 3 fingers to open a Control bar and select the second right icon(arrow keys) to control slide up/down.

This pen feature mostly does not work on my Android pad.  The pen drag feature is not consistent.  If I drag it slides the screen up and down, but does not move the cursor.  Not easy to control the pen.

I can use the native pen of a PowerPoint presentation when using Splashtop, but I cannot invoke your whiteboarding tools. I tried the 3 finger tap you suggested which only made the screen larger.

@mitch,

What android device you are using?

@Sandy,

Are you using Splashtop Whiteboard? or Splashtop Remote Desktop? whiteboard tools only available in Splashtop Whiteboard.

How do I access the control bar? You say " tap 3 fingers to open a Control bar " and i have no idea how you do that. I have tried tapping three times fast, and I have tried tapping it with three fingers at once; neither seem to work.

Is there another way to lock the screen so when I write it does not move all over the place?
