myPoint

1. Basics

myPoint is designed as on-screen tool which is working while another application is active. Because of this there are some specifics in the application's User Interface.
Missing UI elements:
  • The app icon in the Dock.
    In fact such an icon can duplicate myPoint icon in the menu extras (aka menu bar extras). However if there isn't free screen space for an icon inside the menu extras, there's not free space for a dock icon too. Finally the icon in the menu extras was preferred because of its smaller size.
  • The application menu in menu bar.
    This menu relates to the active application. However myPoint is especially designed to work while other apps are active. Because of this myPoint icon inside menu extras is preferred.
Available UI elements:
  • myPoint application icon in Applications folder.
    By default myPoint will be installed inside the Applications folder. Open the Applications and find out myPoint application icon.
  • myPoint application icon in Launchpad.
    The same icon can be found in Launchpad too. Open the Launchpad and type "mypoint" in search field.
  • myPoint icon in menu bar extras.
    This icon differs from myPoint application icon. It's small and simplified. Click on it to open myPoint menu.
  • myPoint menu in menu bar extras.
    It's a drop-down menu revealed after a click on myPoint icon. This menu replaces the common application menu in menu bar.
  • myPoint panel (aka Preferences panel).
    This panel is a common application panel with some views. All views are organized in a tab-control - there are about box, general settings and other feature specific views.
