Office Add-in – User Guide
The add-in syncs the visual content of our app with your Office documents. Enrich your teaching materials with our 3D models and draw your students’ attention. This guide will walk you through everything you need to know about the installation and usage of the add-in.
To get started, you need to install the add-in for a selected Office product and sync it with the app. Our installation manual will guide you through it.
Once the installation is complete, you can start creating your first document using our 3D models. We’ll be glad to assist you!
If you use Office 365 or Office 2016 and higher, open the Home tab in the selected Office product and click the add-in icon in its right corner.
If you use Office 2013, open the My apps menu inside the Insert tab and click the add-in icon.
If you use the online version of PowerPoint in Chrome, you need to install the Copy and Paste extension in order to fully utilize the add-in.
Moving on, notice the add-in panel in the right corner of the Office product screen. Before you start searching for the right model for your presentation or document, pay a little attention to this panel.
Using the icon allows you to check the state of your connection and the time passed since the last file update.
Clicking the icon opens a settings menu allowing you to change the display language or cancel the sync with the app.
Clicking the icon opens a help tab.
And finally, the icon allows you to delete a screenshot from your gallery.
The grey icons at the bottom part of the panel represent your screenshot gallery. When you take a screenshot of a model in the app, this is where it appears. Currently, your screenshot gallery is empty, but because we are done with the basic introduction to the add-in interface, it is the right time to change that!
Clicking the Search button redirects you to the app’s search window.
Once you are inside the app’s search window, find the desired model, and open it.
Click the Share button in the bottom panel. you can rotate the model, zoom-in, or highlight any desired detail.
To take a screenshot, choose either the Screenshot (the model on a colored background) or Transparent screenshot option. Your screenshots get automatically exported to Office. The Save screenshots button saves the screenshots directly to your hard drive.
Return to Office and click on the thumbnail of the created screenshot. A dialogue window will appear asking for your permission to access your clipboard. Use the Ctrl + V shortcut or click the Paste button in the Home tab to place the screenshot into your document. Important: In PowerPoint, you cannot insert screenshots directly into text boxes. Therefore, always select a blank space in the document to insert your screenshot.
Each screenshot also contains a direct link to the 3D model in the app. Just right-click on it and select the Open Hyperlink option or use the Ctrl + left mouse button shortcut.
Your screenshots remain saved and can be reused at any time. If you want to remove one of them, just click on its thumbnail and use the remove icon .
Note: In the offline version of the Corinth app, you can export your screenshots to a PowerPoint presentation without having to sync the app with Office. Simply click the PowerPoint button in the Share panel and your screenshot will open in a new PowerPoint presentation. However, this option is not available when the app is actively synced to Office. To use it, you must stop the sync by choosing the Sync with Office option in the main app menu and clicking the Stop sync button.
