Product FAQs

The MimioTeach system is used with a projector, which allows you to display your computer screen on the whiteboard. You can directly interact with lessons and presentations using the MimioTeach stylus. The MimioCapture system is an accessory to the MimioTeach device, which allows you to capture dry erase notes or drawings directly from the whiteboard using the MimioCapture pens. A projector cannot be used with the MimioCapture system.

If the MimioCapture pens and eraser are showing amber LEDS, there is a loss of range when writing/erasing, and there are missing lines in the software, it means that they need to be charged. To charge the pens and eraser, place them in the MimioCapture tray. If the pens and eraser show a green LED when in the MimioCapture tray but do not seem to be charging, contact [email protected] for additional troubleshooting.

  • When using Mimio interactively with a projector, select the pen tool and appropriate color from the Mimio Tools to record handwritten notes.
  • You should not be using the Capture Kit pens with dry-erase markers when using Mimio interactively. Set the ink stylus pens aside and only use the Mimio Mouse interactive pen when using Mimio interactively with a projector. It is an incorrect setup to use ink pens with a projected image.

You can use one tray with each MimioTeach system.

It is possible that the colors have been changed in the settings within MimioStudio Notebook. Check the stylus color settings by going to Tools > Settings > Ink Capture > Pens (on a PC), or Notebook > Preferences > Ink Capture > Pens (on a Mac).

  • Verify you are correctly in Capture Mode. If all stylus pens show up black, MimioStudio is most likely configured in Interactive Mode and needs to be reconfigured into Capture Mode.
  • Check the stylus color settings in MimioStudio. Select Tools > Settings from the Notebook pull down menu, then select Ink Capture on the left to confirm the color settings for the individual pens. NOTE: You must have a Mimio device connected to your computer to view and modify the pen settings.

If one of the pens or the eraser for the MimioCapture system does not seem to be functioning correctly, try replacing the battery. If replacing the battery does not resolve the issue, try using one of the other MimioCapture pens, or borrow an eraser from another classroom to see if you get the same result. If you determine that the pen or eraser is defective, contact [email protected] for additional troubleshooting.

  • In Windows, open Mimio Notebook > Tools > Settings.
  • In Mac, open Notebook from the Apple header > Preferences > Settings.
  • Select Ink Capture on the left side of the MimioStudio Settings dialog.
  • Select the Pens of your choice and adjust how it will appear on the Mimio Notebook page, according to color and thickness.
  • Select OK.

Changing pen color and thickness:

  1. In Windows, open Mimio Notebook > Tools > Settings.
  2. In Mac, open Notebook from the Apple header > Preferences > Settings.
  3. Select Ink Capture on the left side of the MimioStudio Settings dialog.
  4. Select the Pen of your choice and adjust how it will appear on the Mimio Notebook page, according to color and thickness.
  5. Press the Ok button.

NOTE: Changing the pen thickness will make the virtual ink thicker or thinner within Mimio Notebook.

USB-C (official name “USB Type-C”) is a new version of the USB standard. Many manufacturers are moving to USB-C, with Apple being the most prominent and moving the fastest. The main benefit of USB-C is that it is reversible—there is no top-versus-bottom. An abundance of technical detail is available on Wikipedia. All Boxlight and Mimio USB cables have the USB Type-A connection at the computer end. Connecting a computer’s USB-C port to the existing cable’s USB-A will require an adapter. Many others can be found online or at most local computer stores.
