Description

Virtual Magnifying Glass is designed for visually-impaired and others who need to magnify a part of the screen. Unlike similar programs it does not open a separate window for the magnification but instead puts a movable magnifying glass on screen.

    Great update! the previous version was antialiasing the pictures even when it was supposed not to do it. This version has the Antialias option ghosted, but that is good for me since that's what I need, no antialias at all. Now, if feature request number 34 could be fulfilled, it would be PERFECT! (and it is very easy to do!)

    Good !! but lacks some important points. 99 % is done, but the 1 % easy to do of perfection is missing!!. Mouse cursor should be visible.! Or optional. Size and magnification should be more flexible to change, like CTRL + or - while active. Using the same mouse wheel to activate (with a click) is an option to take in account. Having to use all ctrl-alt-key as a shortcut is very uncomfortable. As I said... almost.
