Screen annotate

Wed Jun 14, 2017 9:05 am
I am trying to find a program that will allow free hand annotations
We are using openSUSE 42.2 and I want to be able to highlight
items on a Libre Impress presentation. It doesn't need to be that clever
The scenario is a teacher wants to highlight a particular item on a presentation
so the ink layer doesn't need to be saved. The set up is that teacher machines have
2 screens the left one being theirs and the right one is the TV or Smartboard/Projector.
They use the left one for things like the register so students can't see it and put things
like presentations on the right one. Then they wander around waving their hands in
the air as teachers do and occasionally write annotations over their presentations.
Maths are a good example, the presentation has the problems and after a bit the teacher
writes the working over the problem and then moves on, clearing the screen.
( aka Microsoft Ink layer ) I tried Gromit and I couldn't get that to work

Perhaps you might be interested in the Mouse Mark effect? Enable in System Settings -> Desktop Effects -> All Effects.

Now that's a handy little tool :-)

It is a shame you need the keyboard. What would be great is a
on-screen on/off button. I know I'm sounding petty but the Tv/Smartboard
isn't near the keyboard and teachers like to stand in front of the class to rant :-)

Many thanks

Sorry, I came across that older post.

Libre Office impress has that feature built-in: Right click while presenting, then "mouse pointer as pen", here you go!
