"Lots of room for functionality, but a great start"

October 24, 2010  |  By gary_erdman

 |  Version: Draw-On-Screen 1

Pros

It works as designed - you can draw on your screen without affecting any windows. Current features are just enough to get the product out the door, but I wouldn't expect too many takers at this point in the development of the product.

Cons

You must allow us to draw polygons, straight lines, circles, etc.
sluggish after several hundred dots. clear button is way too slow.save window, allow me to see the other files already saved .Hotkeys are a must. remember all the settings. file/open

Summary

I?m sure you?ve already gotten these suggestions, but here goes:

1. If you don?t minimize the Draw-On-Screen window by clicking the minimize button, you can?t draw where the window was.
2. You must allow us to draw polygons, straight lines, circles, etc.
3. Your program gets sluggish after several hundred dots.
4. The clear button is way too slow.
5. In the save window, allow me to see the other files already saved in this format. The way I?ll be using your program is to draw lines on stock charts, but I need to keep revising the lines as time goes on so I just want to click on the symbol name rather than typing it all the time when I save a new drawing. I would suggest you use the load function?s code for the save function too.
6. Hotkeys are a must, although I might be able to program a Hotkeys script to clear the screen quickly, save the drawing and load a drawing.
7. How to get the program to remember all the settings I gave it. I can?t reload them every time I restart the program. Is there something I?m missing here ? the settings don?t save?!?!
8. Does the program start each time windows is rebooted? Configure by simply putting shortcut of program into Startup folder?
9. Keep on top doesn?t work as expected ? only works sometimes. No big deal to me as I would keep your program minimized most of the time anyway.
10. Allow your program to be minimized to the system tray only. I used the utility ?Tray It!? to do it for me.
11. I just tried the file/open and yes there were quite a few dots, but it took over 10 seconds to load ? that is way way too long to be useful. I was about to write the Auto Hotkey scripts to make your program work with hotkeys, but now I will have to wait for your next release before I will be able to use your program.

"Room for improvement"

August 01, 2009  |  By achappel

 |  Version: Draw-On-Screen 1

Pros

Only product I can find that has this functionality. Fairly simple to use.

Cons

This program has a lot of room for improvement, see below.

Summary

Examples of room for improvement:

1. Settings to automatically run in the background (system tray) upon Windows startup.
2. Solid lines.
3. Color customization.
4. Automatic scalable shapes.

"Enough for me, if not for CPU hogging."

October 11, 2008  |  By Shadoufang

 |  Version: Draw-On-Screen 1

Pros

Few but "necessary" options; drawings stay on the screen unless I use the CLEAR button; OTHER "draw-on-screen" PROGRAMs' markings disappear either when you lose focus of it, change windows, or deactivate it to run only in the background.

Cons

CPU process hogger!
Just like user slick_lempicky's review, it doesn't draw lines, but dots.

Summary

Only because it's a CPU hogger could I not use this. The "dot-line" drawing is bearable for me, but I can't use this with my graphics program running, which is what i'd use this for (for aligning, making quick, temporary markings, etc...)

"Works, but not very well"

August 17, 2008  |  By slick_lempicky

 |  Version: Draw-On-Screen 1

Pros

Color options, shift key or mouse click options, size options

Cons

Doesn't draw a solif line, rather it draws dots, and you can make a solid line if you draw slow enough
