Still doesn’t replace ZoomIt! on Windows
I’m a mac user. But I have to use Windows a lot for presenting. This utility partially fills a gap and thats awesome!
On Windows we have a utility called ZoomIt! that works marvelously, because it is completely stealth until you use it. 4 Modes
Ctrl+1 zoomes the screen in a freeze frame way based upon the pointer’s location. Its useful for complex applications or rooms with poor quality projectors. In this mode you can click and start drawing. In the drawing mode, keyboard keys will change pointer color, size, and modifiers give you shape draws like arrows, straight lines, circles and rectangles. You can also type stuff on the screen.
Ctrl+2 is just the drawing mode.. Everything from above w/o the zoom part.
Ctrl+3 is an on screen timer. Its pretty common that we need to take a break during a longer presentation… this gives the audience the 5 or 10 min timer til we get started again. Or maybe you need to give them a questionnaire or the like
Ctrl+4 Is the active zoom mode. Its like Ctrl+1, except the screen stays active.
Update 2: I clicked "update all" and now I have version 4 but I wish I still had version 3.5 since I've lost features. I respect the developer's right to get paid for his work but I'm sad that I lost some features. Oh well still a nifty app. You still get spotlight for free and that's the most useful.
Updating my review to 5 stars -- all three of my suggestions below were implemented! What a great little app for free!
I'm on High Sierra and it worked fine on my MacBook in my quick testing. Haven't tried multiple monitors.
IMHO only one of the options is truly useful -- the spotlight. My suggestions:
1. A preference for the delay. I'd like an option to see the spotlight immediately.
2. A pref for the opacity. It would be nice to dim the background not quite so dark, so you could still see it.
3. A pref to use the key as a toggle -- press once to turn on, again to turn off -- so you don't have to hold it down the whole time.
Thanks to the dev for giving us this cool little app!
Nice pointers, bad implementation
I used to like this tool until I realized that the app will overtake my arrow keys, meaning that pressing arrow keys would simply change the type of pointer instead of performing the original functions of these keys. How am I supposed to change slides while presenting?? (I don't remember running into this problem when I tried this app a few weeks ago. Wonder if this is a poorly implemented new feature introduced in a recent update?)
