Spotlighter - gtk interface to make annotations on the screen




spotlighter is a tool that shows a movable and resizable spotlight on the desktop. This is especially useful when making presentations to hide and unhide things. It has been implemented for educational purposes.

Move and resize the spotlight with fast gestures on the spotlight.

Click on the white cross in the top right corner to quit the program.

Spotlighter is XInput-Aware, so you can use it with a graphic tablet or a whiteboard.
