  • Hi Dave,
    Thanks for presenting on this tool. I think this might be a tool that could work within the health region that I work for as there is a high concern about keeping things secure. I had the same problems with the screenshots being fuzzy, I'm still not sure how to fix it or get around it. It looked fine on my screen in PowerPoint, but once uploaded into Slideshare they were fuzzy. If you figure out what the problem is please let me know!
