When making presentations of the Gimp one remains busy often moving the mousepointer around the point of interest until hopefully everybody noticed it. This annoyed me, since it is a very vague way to highlight something. Gromit is a small programm which allows me to simply draw on the screen, ignoring any window-borders. The main usage problem of Gromit is its activation. You need a special command to make Gromit grab the mouse, since you typically want to use the program you are demonstrating and highlighting something is a short interruption of your workflow. Gromit offers two ways to make this possible. It grabs the "Pause" key, so that no other application can use it and it is available to Gromit only. If you are doing a presenation make gromit active using commad line from a terminal screen and later use the pause key and its combinations The available commands are: Pause: toggle painting SHIFT-Pause: clear screen CTRL-Pause: toggle visibility ALT-Pause: Quit Gromit.
