In presentations it's all about to grab and to focus the attention. Presentation Pointer makes it easy for your audience to follow your actions on the screen. It adds cursor highlighting abilities and more visual and audible mouse click effects.

It also displays your keystrokes in an overlay at the bottom of the screen and allows you to draw freely on the screen but not lock the screen, so you can draw on a video as it was playing. Presentation Pointer is an essential tool for everyone doing demos at tradeshows, presentations and trainings.

Maybe I can help out #11 now. Right after I wrote a complaint on their website (as that page came up after I uninstalled the program), I decided to give it one last try, I took out the zip file from the folder, which I had put in there before, and then ran BOTH setup and activation with administrator rights and voila, the program launched as "Licensed to Giveawayoftheday". Hope you read this and try it, and it works fr you, too!

If you are having problems registering the software, I found I had to reboot for the registration to take effect.

Same as #11, installed and activated, still trial, GOTD popup says successfully activated but the Register popup still has empty boxes for ID & serial number which was not given in the readme file. Is this a joke or did I get the wrong zip file (?) from everyone else who seem to have registered or activated successfully? Mina says on top, Trial version. IS this supposed to be? I got 3 hours to make this work! Anyone? URGENT!

Rebooting the computer solved the problem mentioned in #12. Presentation Pointer is now Licensed to Giveawayoftheday.

Jan, currently @11.

Try to restart the application, and if that does not help, restart your computer. I had the same problem, but after applying this trick, the application now shows as registered.

Hope it helps.


Cheers,


I.M.

Update

Just realised that when I thought I'd closed it, the Presentation Pointer system tray icon was still active, and there was another serial number dialogue box open behind everything else. I dismissed both, re-opened the program and it was registered.

I'd also turned off my ad-blocking browser extensions so that may have helped

Thanks GOTD and the developers :)

I'm having the same problem as Jan in #11. Installed it, and activated it, using "Run as Administrator" on both the setup and activate exes,. Did this twice, once with the program closed and once with it open. Both times it said the activation was successful, but when I ropen the program it tells me it's still a trial version, and wwhen I hit the "Register" button a dialogue box opens wanting a serial number.

I'm using WIN 8.1 64 bit

Help needed. I have the same question as Jan in #11. Inside a Win 7 64 bit system, the install program and activation were run as administrator. The activation said it was run successfully. However, Presentation Pointer is labeled a trial version and does not show “Licensed to:”.

I uninstalled the program and reinstalled it this time without opening it. Run the activation program before opening!! That should do the trick.

Help needed. I installed the software and ran the activation which said it was successful. When I verify the activation, it says I am still using the trial version. Do I need an activation serical number?

ZoomIt is a 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. I wrote ZoomIt to fit my specific needs and use it in all my presentations.

ZoomIt works on all versions of Windows and you can use pen input for ZoomIt drawing on tablet PCs.
Using ZoomIt

The first time you run ZoomIt it presents a configuration dialog that describes ZoomIt's behavior, let's you specify alternate hotkeys for zooming and for entering drawing mode without zooming, and customize the drawing pen color and size. I use the draw-without-zoom option to annotate the screen at its native resolution, for example. ZoomIt also includes a break timer feature that remains active even when you tab away from the timer window and allows you to return to the timer window by clicking on the ZoomIt tray icon.

Very happy. I had been wanting this software. Everything that I wanted: easy toggle on/off, keystrokes visible, and on screen annotation.

I wanted to add the to the suggestions box above:
"Enable it to be used on the Desktop of a remote PC one is linked to from ones own PC where the software actually resides (but not on the remotely controlled PC)"
But the system wont let me, claiming that I put in the wrong characters whereas it is only 5 numbers and how stupid one must be to type in 6 times the wrong numbers (or how stupid to try 6 times or even to bother suggesting something here). I guess there is some discrimination is going on, as is usual for this site, as I am sure this message will not be posted either.

Nice application. Just would like to put in a few words for the promotional deals: Bought Presentation assistant and Capturesaver with lifetime upgrades several years ago. I do not use presentation assistant often but it is very handy when I do need it. However I do use capturesaver often. Love the lifetime upgrades. Definitely recommended if you use these types of programs. Give them a try and you will like them.

#5: "I wish something like this was used by people presenting on webinars. Often their mouse pointers are so tiny they are impossible to follow. The same goes for people making instructional videos for YouTube."

Believe it's a mark I guess I'd say of less professionalism. This isn't the only software of it's kind, and more than one screen cap app includes this sort of thing as well. But like with captioning for the hearing impaired, some people can't be bothered. Hopefully some of those people will happen by GOTD today, try Presentation Pointer, & buy a license [since the GOTD terms are personal use].

IMHO the old adage still applies: "If it's worth doing, it's worth doing well."

This seems to be a good app. Downloaded and installed on Windows 8.1 without problem. I wish something like this was used by people presenting on webinars. Often their mouse pointers are so tiny they are impossible to follow. The same goes for people making instructional videos for YouTube.

Looks like a pretty good app to grab your audience's attention of by customizable mouse pointers, mouse clicks, visible keystrokes and a screen pen, with lots of customizable options availabl.

Decent alternative to Mousepose for MAC: so don’t be fooled by its current and once again misleading low GAOTD user rating.

In my view this GAOTD is a must have tool for anyone (webmarketers, teachers and IT Trainers) involved in demos, presentations and trainings (that's why it got a very low rating so far).

As a teacher who sometimes needs to produce videos explaining things this is a very useful tool for me if it works as promised. It is included in some more expensive software but I use a variety of screen captures.

It may also be useful for those with vision impairment as you can change the colour of the pointer.

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit system.

A Chinese (?) company without name and address.

This is a special program. It enlarges the windows arrow to a "presentation pointer" for displaying and educational purposes of the screen.
You can also display mouse movement, key strokes or clicks and "live zoom".

This is done via definable function keys.

This works as it should. I would prefer instead of function keys the use a special mouse key. And an advice to the developer.

Do NOT simply enlarge the key image, take a high resolution new image for different sizes. And make things "blinkable".

For those presentation screens to an audience a good and working help.
