Exactly What I Needed

I run web meetings and just need a simple and unabtrusive way to highlight and draw things during the meeting. I've tried several others but this is by far the best.

I can easily invoke and dismiss it with a simple keyboard shortcut and no distracting toolbar appears. I can then draw with click and hold and when I finish explaining I let go and it gently fades out. I can continue focusing on what I'm saying without getting flustered trying to remember how to clear the screen.

The detailed control of keyboard shortcuts is a game changer for me. Even things like toggling between my two most-used tools is just hitting tab. I can do everything I need and only have to remember two keyboard shortcuts.

Pretty easy to use and to the point

I was able to use this for commentary stuff and for tutorials over Skype screen sharing. Works pretty well.

Although, I would still hope the mouse pointer capture rate could be higher because my mouse pointer track speed is set to be pretty high as I have a big screen, and the mouse pointer isn't being captured fast enough, so, unless you move your mouse less fast, the drawing loses some detail, e.g. some curved pointer tracks may end up being straight lines. The one star was taken off for this issue and hope it can be improved. ;)

Support, Touch Bar and Pressure sensitivity WOW

Suoer fast support. Product is fantastic for what I need. Used OmniDazzel before, but this is better imho. Being able to use the pressure sensitive feature with my wacom stylus is a game changer. The touch bar functionality for this software on the new MacBook Pro is AMAZING :)
Go buy the PRO version if you need the sketches to remain on the screen, and hide and return it with control-tab. Great stuff! 5 stars.
