I got confused between this and the other desktop covering thing you posted about (ColorVeil
). Evidently it's by the same group/person. Anyway, I can see using this in presentations as a much better way to get folks to focus on what's important.
- You can create more than one desktop window. This is great for presentations because you can gradually add in more and more items until the whole screen is un-draped (the boxes overlap)
- Lots of opacity options for a sort of pre and post-dimmed view, with available colors.
- Quick on/off (essentially pause the program) (CTRL+F11)
- Clear out all drawn boxes and start with a clean slate (ctrl+delete)
- Writes settings to the application folder in "cinemadrape.cinemadrape"
== Boxes ==
- This is the big one: you cannot make the drape boxes flush with the side of the screen. In other words, if you draw a box that includes your task bar, part of the taskbar will be cut off.
- Overlapping windows have black boxes around them. I recommend against a visible border unless the mouse is hovering over it.
- Borders around images are a little bit thick. I know some people would prefer this so manybe an option on this point?
- Ability to delete the last-created window (sort of an "Undo" function ... maybe ctrl+shift+del)
== Other ==
- Somehow enable an ability to click on things outside the boxes (e.g. even if you've got the other window dimmed, you might want to type out a quick note or uncheck a box ... so while you want your focus in one place, you still want access to the other parts of your desktop)
- Customizable hotkeys (e.g. switch from "shift" to "shift+a")
- Doesn't extend to new monitors. Have to restart the program.
- Some explanation of what "area under cursor" (shift+middle click) does.
