Whiteboard Tools


The communication is further enhanced by visual pointing. When client's desktop is shared using ISL Light, the operator can use the desktop as a whiteboard: draw a pointer, use a red marker to circle or underline something. The whiteboard will be automatically enabled if, before the session starts, the "Enable keyboard and mouse control" check box is not set under Session Options.

The settings for whiteboard are located in the top toolbar of the desktop streaming window (ISL View).


Click "Marker" button and draw across the desktop.

If you are not in control then the Marker is selected by default. Otherwise you can enter the whiteboard mode at anytime, by pressing the "Marker" button.



Click "Eraser" to delete whiteboard tools from screen.

Beside automatic erasing of the whiteboard when returning to the remote desktop mode, the whiteboard can be erased by pressing the Erase Whiteboard button. To access custom options right-click on this button ():

  • Delete after 5 seconds (the whiteboard will be erased in 5 seconds after it has been drawn).
  • Delete after 10 seconds (the whiteboard will be erased in 10 seconds after it has been drawn).
  • Delete manually (the whiteboard will be erased when the button is pressed).



Click "Pointer" button and click across the screen to set pointers.


Remote Control (Mouse)

Click "Remote Control" button to switch back from whiteboard to normal mode, where you want to control the mouse.
