$ Magnifier


Magnifier is an application that magnifies or zooms-in on the area surrounding your mouse cursor.

You can launch Magnifier by navigating to System Menu → Utilities → Magnifier.

Magnifier can do 2x, 4x, or 8x zoom in realtime. Quickly switch zoom level by pressing 2, 4, or 8.

Once you feel that the area being captured is just right, you can pause capture by pressing Spacebar.

To lock the location, making Magnifier stop following your mouse and stay in place, press L.

To view a pixel grid overlay, press G.

For users with slight visual impairment, Magnifier can apply several filters to the captured image. Click on the Accessibility menu and select one of the impairment categories available in the drop-down list.
