After finishing the activation, the app will begin to download all of its content which can take up to a few minutes. You don’t have to wait until the download is complete, 3D models can be downloaded and opened in any order based on your requests. Congratulations! You have now unlocked the full version of the Corinth app! To make the downloading faster click the Download Content button in the user menu.
You can expand the possibilities of the app in your lesson preparation with the use of MS Office Add-ins that connects the Corinth app with MS Word and PowerPoint.
2) Sync the app with Office
Sync the Corinth app with Office to take full advantage of its potential. Let’s find out more about its benefits and how to make it work.
The main benefits of synchronization with Office
- Synchronizing screenshots with your Office documents makes it easy to use the visual materials of the Corinth app in your presentations, worksheets and other documents.
With this feature, you can easily insert screenshots created while working with our 3D models into your teaching preparations. It is up to you whether you want to use the preparations you have been using for years or create brand new documents.
By syncing your documents with the 3D models in the app, your teaching materials become not only visually attractive but also interactive. Each screenshot includes a link allowing you to open the 3D model directly in the Corinth app.
Not only teachers will benefit from the synchronization with Office. Your students will find it a valuable aid when working on reports, presentations or homework.
How to sync Corinth with Office?
To synchronize the visual content of the Corinth app with your teaching materials in Office, you first need to install the Corinth Screenshots add-in.
Before you start with the installation, make sure add-in installation is enabled for the Microsoft accounts of your organization. Your IT admin will help you with this. Our guide to add-in deployment will guide him through.
Now let’s finally have a look at the installation:
- Click the Sync with Office button in the main menu of the Corinth app. An add-in installation window will appear.
- Click the Install button on the right side of the installation window. This will take you to the Corinth Screenshots add-in page in Microsoft Store.
- Select the Office product for which you want to install the add-in by clicking the Open in Word / Open in PowerPoint button. The selected Office product will open and the add-in will be installed automatically.
- When the installation is complete, Corinth Screenshots will appear in the right sidebar of the selected Office product. Now you need to sync the Office product with the Corinth app.
- Go back to Corinth and click the Generate button on the right side of the add-in installation window to generate an add-in code. Copy the generated code and insert it into the Add-in code box in the Office add-in panel. Confirm by clicking the Connect button.
- If you wish to sync the app with another Office product (Word, PowerPoint), open the add-in page in Microsoft Store and select the Office product for which you want to install the add-in by clicking the Open in Word / Open in PowerPoint button. To sync the product with the Corinth app, use your add-in code. To view the code, click the Sync with Office button in the main menu of the Corinth app.
Great! You have successfully installed the add-in. All information on how to work with Corinth Screenshots can be found in our user manual.
Note: You can also 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.
You can also keep using the previous version of our Office add-in. However, this version is no longer supported or updated with new content. We, therefore, recommend updating to the latest add-in version.
3) Installation for multiple accounts of a single device
This is the fastest way to perform installation on a single device for all current and future device users. Application data (content and features) is shared among users and downloaded only once. User data is not shared across accounts, so each user can customize the app (favorite models, etc.). The license key is activated once for all users of the device. The process must be repeated on each device. If you have multiple devices connected through a network, our advanced mass deployment guide will help you.
