Sweet little app
Every week I do a lot of online meetings. When sharing my desktop I've needed something that I could use to quickly draw a line or a circle or whatever to point something out -- ie., to highlight what I was talking about.
This app does just that.
It has an easy to remember shortcut so it's simple to clear the highlighting.
If you're running a VM you can highlight on that too as long as your VM is not displaying in full screen mode.
When I first downloaded it I had a quick question for the developer. I've never had anyone respond as quickly and courtesly.
The best money I've ever spent.
Maybe it's because I'm using a later version, but I've never had it crash.
Sufficient for highlighting during presentations.
The application works as specified and doesn’t get in your way once you learn a few keystrokes. While using the app, I could DOUBLE-CLICK with my mouse which presents a text window that I can type to Highlight will add text to the sceen - nice touch! I would like to recommend (feature request) that the ‘mouse’ change from the black arrow into a yellow arrow (black outline) or a small highlight pen as indication that it’s active, without having to look for the menu on the left of the screen, but otherwise, it’s an inexpensive app and very useful.
[I am on a Mac Pro using macOS Sierra].
Really good app with a really bad flaw.
It’s a simple app, that works really well except there’s a really bad flaw in the double click logic.
When you double click you get a text input box which is nice, though only moderately useful given how imprecise positioning is. But that’s not a real problem, just a minor nuisance
The real problem is that if you are using a Wacom tablet, and draw something like an X, or a T or anything the application will see this as a double click, remove the most recent stroke and wait for text input. It’s bad. Double click is the wrong way to raise this feature. It needs to be configurable so I can use a key, or a button on my stylus.
