Highlight, focus or magnify objects in PowerPoint presentations, on the fly and with zero preperation
|Scooped by Robin Good|
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.
