I was wondering if anyone has had any luck in creating a simple gallery item of their own that acts like a Notebook created polygon or, the Map of Africa for example, found in gallery items. An object that both the border and interior can be changed by the students in color and style?
Explanation: I do a project with my 2nd graders where (in appleworks) they have a maps I created of the 5 Boroughs of New York City and bordering land masses. (Westchester county, Long island etc.) In apple works, the children can change the fill and border color of each borough. I have tried to convert this same lesson in Notebook with no luck. Transparent .png files of each borough are great in that the students can drag all the pieces together to make the map, but they can't change the color of each item. I have been able to unzip the AFRICA_0000C8E5.galleryitem file and realize that it is a svg file with much code to allow it to work as a galleryitem file. Has anyone been able to create their own gallery items that can change border and fill colors?
Thanks for any insights,
