Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Mirror portion of multi-monitor

I just downloaded the trial version of UltraMon and I noticed under the Add-ons section of the site there was a utility called MirrorMon.  I downloaded it and this little app does exactly what I was looking for.  You can define an area of the screen and mirror it in a window.  I am mirroring a section of my second monitor which displays nicely in a little window on my main monitor.  Works great with no CPU usage.

However, when I do as tinjaw has suggested it works fine UNTIL I right click on something/anything. Then the focus of the magnified area goes to the place where I've right clicked or the top of the context menu which that may have launched.

If you uncheck all of the tracking boxes it shouldn't move should it?

You would think so but I tried it out and encountered the same issues as BigJim describes.

Nice new freeware tool related to this, called "PresentationMode":

Nice find mouser but the software essentially mirrors your laptop screen and projects it.  I want the opposite... define a region on my second monitor and have a window on my laptop screen that displays just that portion.  I'm still playing around with PresentationMode now (although the ZoomIt application from System Internals does a lot of the same).

I'm not 100% sure what the real uses for this would be, but a nice generic solution would be a program with 2 "regions", or rather a window and a region selector.  The window could be placed and sized as desired, and would display the contents of the selected region, which could be moved anywhere.

So basically this is like a "magnification" tool, except that it can before enlargement or reduction, and doesn't follow the cursor, but rather shows the content of a selected region on your screens.

I wouldn't be surprised if such a program didn't already exist.. if someone finds it (or writes it!) please post.

Could be useful for given presentation talks, etc.


Giving presentations is exactly what this would be used for.  I give a lot of them and currently I have to look at the screen where the presentation display is being projected to see what I am typing.  It would be so much faster and convenient if I was able to see what I was typing in a simple window on my main display.

I use software that displays the work environment on my main monitor (which is one application window) and a presentation display on my second monitor (which is a second application window).  With the presentation display on the second monitor activated, I can start typing the ID of an image I want to display with the text I am typing displayed in the bottom right corner of the presentation display.

Is it possible to create an application that would allow me to mirror just the bottom right corner of my presentation display in a small window on my main display so that I would not have to look at the second monitor to see what I am typing?  I cannot tell you how helpful such an application would be in my daily work.  Thanks!
