myPoint

Heavy Shade

myPoint can overshadow the screen image up to 100%, i.e. the only thing visible is the shade color. This one offers several specific features to the application.
The shade level above 90% is called Heavy shade.

Heavy Shade Limiter

This is an automatic restriction in time - when the time elapses the Heavy shade is reduced to 90%. This way the limiter prevents the deep overshadowing of the screen for unlimited period of time, thus ensuring the user experience.
The application respects the area of heavy shade - the whole desktop or selected monitors - and decreases only their shade level.
The limiter's timeout is customizable: from half a minute to 30 minutes.
Default value: half a minute.
Note: When myPoint starts all the Heavy shades are automatically decreased to 90%.

Decreasing the shade level

The ability to overshadow completely the running applications, the application menu and the Dock requires reducing of the shade via hotkeys.
Hotkeys:
  • Toggle the shade: default hotkey is ⌃⌥⌘ S.
  • Decrease by 10%: default hotkey is ⌃⌥⌘ Down Arrow.
  • Toggle the target: default hotkey is ⌃⌥⌘ T.
There are two shade targets: Common shade and Mouse screen.
The mouse screen is the screen under the mouse pointer - move the mouse on another screen to target it.

Shade off

There is one hotkey to toggle the shade on and off.
Default hotkey is: ⌃⌥⌘ S.
This hotkey is customizable nad cannot be disabled:
