Hi everyone. Apologies for not doing a release last week, but we're really busy with lots of very exciting projects and we grew as a company! So in a way you could say that we "released" Valerie onto the world! 😉
This week's update brings one main new feature, an improvement to how "Full Screen Presentation" works:
When you start a Full Screen Presentation, either by clicking on the button or the menu or hitting CTRL+F, you'll now see the two little toggles above in the lower-right corner of your screen. They'll fade out in a few seconds, but you can always bring them back by mousing over the bottom-right corner of the screen.
The first toggle is for showing and hiding linking hints and the big pointers. You can now turn them off if you're using the presentation mode to test a new UI on some user and don't want to give them hints on where to click, or simply if you find the big pointer distracting.
The second toggle is for showing and hiding markup elements, such as sticky notes, arrows and callouts (any control under the "Markup" tab in the UI Library). This is useful if you want to just look at your UI without the annotations that surround it.
The state of the two toggles is remembered across sessions, and in the Desktop version you can use the "m" (or "M") and "l" (or "L") keys to toggle the two settings as well.
We also made the blue link highlight a lot more faint, it was too distracting.
This feature is the result of a few rounds of great feedback from Michael Bourque and all the others that contributed to his GetSatisfaction thread, thanks so much everyone.
I promise to never again make the mistake of releasing a big feature without getting help from the community like I did for the linking feature. My apologies and thank you so much for your continued support and feedback, I really appreciate it and enjoy our conversations on GetSatisfaction tremendously.
Have a great week everyone!

This just rocks. This new Full screen presentation is really, really cool and I’ve seen nothing like it elsewhere.
Keep up the good… no… excellent work!
