Yes.  'Just' go into the lounge.  Look for a table that has a 
flipchart.  get close, press X and see what you can do.  You can even 
create a URL to share with others to work with the flipchart even if 
they are not in the room.  Or maybe it pulls them into the room; I have 
not tried this.

And download is there.  I think as svg?
