- (The drop down does not <alt> + 1 take a screen shot while it is activated - so it is not shown here.)
- ==> Note a Red Arrow will appear on the left side of the receiving system's Sugar Frame,
- and then in the upper Sugar Frame when the Activity is running, where the user has to accept the transfer, before it is transmitted into the Journal in Sugar.
- Point the mouse at a corner of the screen/window and wait for the Frame to extend.
- Here the Frame view shows the file was sent from the XO-1.5 to the XO-1
- The Red arrow icon drop-down palette indicates a file was received also.
- Here in the Home view, the Red Arrow icon drop-down palette shows that a file was received into the Journal from the XO-1 to the XO-1.5
- This is a nice way to share files.
