Line Reader

You can use Line Reader to:

Read text easily by attaching a line (a.k.a the Line Reader) to the mouse pointer. You can also activate a Helper Line which will appear at the top of the Line Reader at a user defined distance. You can set the color, width and height of the Line Reader and Helper Line and you can also set the mouse position relative to the Line Reader. You can also Flip the Line Reader and the Helper Line.

Activate up to 30 Multiple Lines (parallel to the Line Reader). Actively set the distance between these lines using the "Distance From Mouse Pointer" track bar from the Helper Line tab. This way you can measure the distance between two controls and also see if they are distanced at the same value from each other (both for vertical and horizontal checks). These multi lines can be flipped just like the line reader can.

Hide mouse cursor. However this functionality works only if the Line Reader is activated and the minimum for both the Line Reader width and Line Reader height is 2. So the mouse will not be hidden if at least one of these (Line Reader width or Line Reader height)  is 1.

Move mouse cursor from keys. You can define by how much to move the mouse cursor up, down, left and right.

Use color filters for Line Reader. Simply enable using the extra features (Line Reader tab) and also the color filtering section (Line Reader Extra Features tab) .

Use Zoom Factor from 2 to 36 for Line Reader. This can be used combined with the Color Filtering functionality.

Take snapshots of your screen using a Color Filter. Take snapshots at the press of a button or using a timer.
