myPoint

Align your point!

myPoint Grid combines three tools in one: Crosshair, Grille and Coordinates.
All tools are customizable: gauge thickness, aperture size, color and opacity, offset from mouse, hotkeys.
myPoint will show its information above all other windows and applications, even when another application is active or in full screen.
Crosshair displays two thin lines across the mouse position.
  • Visible on all monitors or only on the monitor with mouse pointer.
  • Customizable performance, gauge, color, transparency, offset from mouse.
  • Hotkey to toggle the tool.
Grille displays grille by horizontal and vertical lines.

  • Hotkey to construct the grille from specified bands number, aka Rule of Thirds.
Coordinates display information about current mouse position in menu bar extras and in a flying panel.
  • Five origin points to calculate cursor position: left top, left bottom, right bottom, right top and custom.
  • Set custom origin by a hotkey.
  • Move mouse cursor to origin point by a hotkey.
  • Input panel to set precisely mouse position. The panel can be open by a hotkey or from the application's menu.
