Markup and Highlighting Tool for Live PowerPoint Presentations (PC only)

Markup and Highlighting Tool for Live PowerPoint Presentations (PC only) | Presentation Tools |
Highlight, focus or magnify objects in PowerPoint presentations, on the fly and with zero preperation
Robin Good's insight:

MagPointer is a downloadable Windows PC software which provides a set of highlighting tools to support the delivery of a PowerPoint presentation.

MagPointer leverages in-depth PowerPoint traits and characteristics, enabling the user to highlight and manipulate easily objects inside any slide.

The toolset includes:

  • Selecting and enlarging a specific slide object
  • Creating frames around specific elements present on a slide
  • Laser pointer
  • Zooming tool
  • Dimming screen outside of the highlighted area
  • Magnify and freeze
  • Element Highlighting tool

MagPointer auto-activates itself when you are in PowerPoint slideshow mode and it appears on the right side of the screen as a vertical toolbar.

It can be used only in conjunction with PowerPoint.

My comment: Very useful tool for presenter and effective feature set. The integrated features and tools are very useful but when MagPointer is active I dislike seeing subtle grey areas appear under every object in a slide. Usability leaves something to be desired especially when it comes to the vertical toolbar and cursor-contextual menu. Could prove very useful and handy for certain trainers/educators who find themselevs at ease with this small downsides.
