There are a number of different ways you can bring your content into SMART Notebook. In this section, I show you the different ways you can reuse your old content.

Copying, cutting, and pasting content

The simplest and most familiar method for adding your content to a SMART Notebook file is to copy/cut and paste. Follow these steps:

1. Open the file from which you want to copy content (for example, a Microsoft Word document).

2. Select the content you want to use, and choose EditCopy or EditCut.
