  • Working with different layers

    In Sprout Workspace, images, ink, and text exist in separate layers, so that objects can be in front of or behind other objects. You can move these objects to place them in front of or behind another object.

    Use the following steps:

    In Workspace, select the image you want to move. A blue outline appears. (A red outline indicates that the image is locked).

    Figure 1: Selected image with blue outline

    Selected image with blue outline

    Tap To Front so the object appears in front of the other objects.

    NOTE:With multiple objects, tapping To Front moves the selected object to the top layer.

    Figure 2: Moving an object to the front

    Moving an object to the front

    To move the object to the back, tap To Back so the object appears behind the other objects.

    NOTE:With multiple objects, tapping To Back moves the selected object to the bottom layer.

  • Navigation Menu

    The area at the top left of the Workspace is the HP Sprout navigation menu. Tapping a menu item allows you to perform the following functions:
    Capture an object on mat
    Open Gallery
    Preview an image or project
    Capture the monitor screen
    Open Sprout Share Hub
    Go to the Internet
    Go to My Room by HP
  • Document Capture

    Capturing a document

    With Sprout, you can also capture documents. Use the following steps:

    On Sprout Home screen, touch Doc Scan.

    Figure 5: Doc Scan on Sprout Home Screen

    Place the document near the center of the mat. When it is lying flat and properly positioned, tap the Capture button.

    Figure 6: Tapping the Capture butto

    Sprout takes a picture with a flash, performs some processing, and then displays the final version. You can now remove the document. The digital version appears on the mat.

    Figure 7: Capturing a document

    When you are satisfied with the scan, tap the blue check to accept it and add it to your Document Gallery. You can also tap the red X to cancel the scan or the plus sign to scan additional documents.

    NOTE: If you scan additional documents, they will all be added to the documents gallery. When performing multiple scans, if you cancel the last capture, then only that capture is cancelled. The other captures are added to the documents gallery.

  • Object Capture

    Capturing an object

    On Sprout Home screen, touch Capture.

    Figure 1: Capture on Sprout Home Screen

    Capture on Sprout Home Screen

    Place the item for capture on the touch mat using the following guidelines.

    Face your objects towards the monitor so the camera gets the best capture.

    Place the object close to the center of the mat.

    If capturing multiple objects, make sure you have ample space between objects and that the shadows do not touch, so they are seen as two separate objects rather than one conjoined object.

    When capturing metal objects, touch Capture first and then place the item on the mat. If a metal item is placed on the mat before the Capture button is pressed, Sprout may register it as a touch on the mat, and the Capture button might not work.

    When capturing many objects at the same time, it will take longer to completely process the capture.

    Tap Capture. There is a 3-second countdown, and then the picture is taken. After the picture is taken, a digital image of the object appears on the mat and Sprout performs some additional processing.

    Figure 2: Tapping the Capture button

    Tapping the Capture button

    Make sure that you like the captured image displayed on the screen, and then remove the object from the touch mat.

    Tap the blue check to accept the image, the red X to cancel, or the plus sign to scan another object.

    NOTE: If you tap the plus sign and scan additional objects, they will all be added to the image gallery. When performing multiple scans, if you cancel the last capture, then only that capture is cancelled. The other captures are added to the image gallery.

    Your captured image is saved in the Images section of Gallery for use anytime.
