JIBB PAPER TUTORIAL
How to get the best results
Always try to start your paper session with a blank sheet of paper, it can be any size you like but usually a standard letter or A4 or A5 page will get the best results.
While JIBB works with any kind of writing instrument, we recommend writing with a black or dark blue pen to get the sharpest looking rendering.
Positioning your phone
Using a phone stand is recommended, but not essential if you don’t already have one. The ideal position for your phone is to stand it upright, leaning slightly forward.
Ideally you want your phone’s front camera to be aiming directly at your whole piece of paper, fitting all four corners of it within the camera preview.
Detecting the surface
You’ll know when it’s time to start writing as soon as you have successfully detected your surface, after fitting the whole page in the preview, keeping your phone completely still.
It’s ok if your sheet of paper moves as you write, JIBB will automatically keep detecting your surface and updating your digital rendering as you keep writing.
SETTING UP FOR SUCCESS
Positioning your device correctly
If you already have a phone stand that helps keep your phone upright in portrait mode, you will find it really easy to get started. However, if you need some further inspiration, here are some more examples of setting up for a JIBB paper session using a few different kinds of stands or common items to successfully get started.
PHONE STAND OPTIONS
Looking for a phone stand to buy?
While using a phone stand is not essential, if you’re planning to use JIBB for both paper and whiteboard session, here or some affordable phone stand options that are available to purchase online.
LIVE SHARING OPTIONS
The choice is yours
If you want to live share your handwriting or drawing with someone else or even see a larger preview of your own session on a laptop or desktop, you have a few different options to choose from.
Sending a link before you start
If you’ve just selected the Paper option on the home screen, and want to share a link to your session before you start positioning your phone, simply tap the invite button to choose an option from your device’s native sharing options and other apps.
Whoever you send a link to via this method will be able to open it on any browser to see what you’re writing or drawing once you’ve finished detecting your surface and begin writing.
Browser sharing & web conferencing
If you’re using JIBB and also have access to your desktop, laptop or tablet with a bigger screen, you can login to your session via a browser and see a much larger preview of your writing and drawing any time.
This option also allows you to copy and share the URL to send however you like, as well as the option to simply join your usual web conferencing platform and share your screen.
Sending a link mid-session
If you’d like to focus on getting started by positioning your phone first and then share an invite link to others after you’ve started writing, you can tap the invite icon in top nav bar of the paper session interface to choose an option.
It’s ok if you move your phone or need to re-detect the writing surface, your JIBB session will continue sharing until you decide to end and share via saving a copy or starting a new page.
