Zoom in Computer Screen on Windows and Live Drawing on It
ZoomIt from Microsoft Sysinternals is a nifty little screen zoom and annotating tool for presentations. But ZoomIt seems to take a photo of the screen for you to draw on - so the screen stays static while you draw, until you hit the ESC button. Also, LiveZoom has a number of limitations: drawing and typing are not supported.
Presentation Pointer also lets you draw, in real time, on your demonstration screen or the zoomed screen without locking it. That means that you can play a video, and then annotate that video right in front of your audience!
By default, you should see the Win Logo + F12 key assigned as hot key to activate the Live Zoom mode.
After the Full-Screen mode is activated, you can use the mouse scroll wheel to zoom in or out the screen while holding the <Ctrl> key down. Hold down the <Ctrl> key and then move the mouse to draw freehand on the zooming screen. Hold down the <Shift> key to draw horizontal, vertical lines. Hold down the <Ctrl+Shift> key to draw arrow lines. Double click on your drawing to clear all.
Presentation Pointer lets you:
- Grab your audience's attention and focus!
- Highlight mouse pointer that makes it easy for your audience to follow your actions on the screen.
- Add more visual and audible mouse click effects.
- Use the screen pen to draw freely on the screen but not lock the screen.
- Display Keystrokes to make it more understandable for your audience.
- Zooming screen but allows you to work on the screen.
- And so much more...
