About Crosshair

This module shows a full screen crosshair of two perpendicular lines across the mouse position.
It is an easy and light tool for aligning everything in your screen - especially useful in a multi monitor environment. Combining it with Coordinates will help you to measure any point on the screen.
The crosshair can be shown on all monitors simultaneously,
or on the screen with the mouse pointer only.

Show and hide the crosshair

To show or hide the crosshair, click on the "Show crosshair" checkbox in myPoint menu, or press the hotkey (default: ⌃⌥⌘ H).
