1. Eye Care

The automatic instant shade off (aka toggle off) will irritate the human's vision. Because of this the Eye Care feature was implemented - it replaces the instant toggle with a gentle fade.
Please increase the fade duration if the shade off still irritates your vision.

2. Driving the shade via mouse

Driving the shade via mouse is an easy and natural way. Open myPoint menu and move the shade sliders in Common and Per screen shade sections until you get the best view.
Change the selection of the "Shade" checkbox to toggle the shade on and off.

3. Open the shade center

Any parameter of the shade can be changed from the shade center.

4. Driving the shade via keyboard

Sometimes it's appropriate to drive the shade via hotkeys, especially in heavy keyboard input. So open the shade center and remember the following hotkeys.
A: Driving the Common shade level:
  • First remember the "Toggle Shade" hotkey.
    Default is ⌃⌥⌘ S.
  • Second remember the "Increase by 10%" and "Decrease by 10%" hotkeys.
    Default: ⌃⌥⌘ ↑ and ⌃⌥⌘ ↓.
  • Finally try to remember the "Increase by 1%" and "Decrease by 1%" hotkeys - you will need them in a dark room. You may skip these keys if you are working in a light room only.
    Default: ⌃⌥⌘ → and ⌃⌥⌘ ←.
B: Driving the shade target.
  • Remember the "Toggle target" hotkey. Default value ⌃⌥⌘ T;
In order to limit the amount of hotkeys a so named Shade Target abstraction was introduced. In general:
  • There are two shade targets:
    • Common shade - all screens at once:
    • Mouse screen - the screen under the mouse pointer.
  • The selected target is preserved - it's not reset at the shade launch.
  • The shade-level hotkeys (10% and 1%) are working on the current target.
  • To target a new mouse screen just move the mouse pointer on it.
