Using the on-screen Pen to Draw on Video & Live Screen
With the on screen pen of Presentation Pointer, you can draw on a “live” screen. For example you can write or draw on a video as it was playing, draw lines and shapes on any application to point out whatabouts and whereabouts of the things you are demonstrating.
How to write or draw on live screen?
Launch Presentation Pointer and you will see the settings window opened. Click the Live Draw button and so you can activate the on screen pen. As it switches on, you can hold down the <Ctrl> key and then move the mouse to draw on the screen.
The Live Drawing can be operated in two different modes: Standalone or together with the Highlight mouse Pointer effect. The first mode means, you can make the Live Drawing independently controllably. The latter mode means the Live Drawing will automatically be toggled whenever the Pointer effect is toggled.
By default, you should see the Ctrl + F11 key assigned as hot key, which means that pressing Ctrl + F11 once activates the desktop pen, allows you to do live drawing. Pressing the same key again deactivates it.
How to Live Draw on Screen?
Use four keyboard buttons and mouse to control:
You can also select what shape to draw like the figure below.
