Zoomit (SysInternals) - A great tool for presentations

#1 Post by roddersg » Wed Feb 18, 2009 8:45 am

ZoomIt is screen zoom and annotation tool for technical presentations that include application demonstrations. ZoomIt runs unobtrusively in the tray and activates with customizable hotkeys to zoom in on an area of the screen, move around while zoomed, and draw on the zoomed image.

It's great for presentations where you want to annotate or draw something on the screen, or even highlight an important point. (Ctrl-Shift left-click) for that all important arrow!

Download the file, run the exe. Finished, just remove it from the toolbar. BTW you can also run it directly from the web-page above.

Great tool for presenters!

Great for doing screencasts or any kind of presentations. It's a big help and I'm very happy to have it. However:

1. It uses a pretty common hotkey CTRL 1, 2, 3, and 4, which I think will cause collisions. No problem: just switched to CTRL+ALT and that went fine.

2. On Win7x64, sometimes makes my mouse disappear, which sucked. The only way I could seem to get it back was to rerun the tool in in a few different ways (Press CTRL+ALT+1 2 3 or 4 again).

From the description:

>Portable. Writes per-user settings to registry.

They might be a little fuzzy on (our?) meaning of portable.

Hi!

I have a question: is there a way to make AeroZoom to save settings in an .ini file or some other way, to make it portable? As it is now, it saves the settings into the registry (HKCU\software\WanderSick\AeroZoom).

Thank you for creating AeroZoom!

@joby_toss The reason why the settings are not portable is I can't guarantee it would work across computers. (e.g. you can tweak it to operate faster in Advanced Options but then it may only work that PC alone).

But I will have a think about that.

Thanks for your comment!

Added an automatic/manual configuration backup and restoration function accessible on AeroZoom panel at "Az > Config File".

I'd been going back and forth about this program since I'd encountered some odd behavior in the 'live zoom' tool, but after the program as a whole really helped me out this week, I decided it was time to add it to the database:
