DemoPro is a menu bar app to draw on the screen during live presentations, demonstrations, and when screen sharing. Use it for teaching, presenting, coaching, or when recording tutorials.

DemoPro has no visible interface in order not to distract your audience. Each tool can be activated with a hotkey, which can be customized by going to DemoPro in the menu bar.

• No matter what's on your screen, just press a hotkey to activate the drawing tool of your choice (freehand, line, arrow, or rectangle).
• Draw on any application, presentation, web page, and even live Video
• Works with Keynote, Powerpoint, and Google Slides in presentation mode
• Works with Zoom, Skype, Google Meets, or Microsoft Teams as long as you share your entire screen
• 5 color presets that can be customized
• Support for multiple screens
• Choose between two activation modes: hold the hotkey down to annotate, or press it once to activate annotation mode and once again to turn it off
• Support for drawing tablets like Wacom and XP-Pen
• Support for iPad and Apple Pencil when using Sidecar, Astropad, or Duet

• Let your audience know how much time they have left during breaks
• Customize the timer with your own message

• Cover the screen with a whiteboard or blackboard at any time
• When using multiple screens the board only shows up on the screen where your mouse is, so that you can still read your notes if you are presenting

DemoPro does not include a Zoom function as it is built-in macOS.
See the FAQ on for more details.

This is simple and the best!!!!!

I present all the time as a professor and researcher. This is the best tool I have ever used. It is simple. You pull down the timer when you are ready for a break. You use the digital ink when you need to write on a slide or anywhere on the screen. You can erase it all and move on with a touch of a button. If you present or conduct workshops, this is all you need.

Needed tool for people that collaborate on a mac

The tool is easy enough to use but it does require both hands to operate (left pressing two buttons like Control-S) while the right clicking and dragging the mouse -- not sure you can improve on that. The one thing that I didn't see documented was how to change the colour -- the help didn't reference it but trial and error found pressing the Option key while clicking the colour box brought up the colour pallet. Still a useful tool!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. I added a new one-handed activation option per your suggestion. With this new mode you just need to press the hotkey once to activate the annotation mode. After you are done drawing, press the same hotkey again, or press the “clear all” hotkey to exit.
The color selection was a bug on macOS Mojave that has been fixed. Hope this helps.

Where has this been all my life??

Seriously…what a great feeling to find an app you really need, and discover that it’s designed perfectly! Simple, elegant and unobtrusive…DemoPro just what I wanted, and exactly what I would have designed if it were up to me. A big thank you to the developer!!!!
