    What does flatten slide mean?

    • Today the whiteboard annotations are not stored in the document. We have plans to change that. If someone else opens the document, they will not see your annotations as they are stored locally on your system. When you open the document during class as a presenter, you project your annotations into class again. This is convenient when you draw during class and you don't want to keep a copy. If you want to keep a copy, you can merge the annotations into an image that is stored in the document. You can replace the current slide OR move it to a new slide when you flatten it.
