Size of a spotlight

Unread post by Kai » Thu Jul 18, 2019 8:33 am

The new spotlight feature is great!

However, I want to emphasize a particular rectangle area. I changed the shape, fine, but I cannot change the size to fit my needs: it keeps the ratio between height and width, wich in my case is not what I want/need.

Am I overlooking something?

Hi Kai,

Hold down CTRL when resizing the spotlight to change its aspect ratio. 8)

That helps, thanks!

However, it still changes the size in a way that works well when you start from the center of an area you want to highlight, but with a rectangle you start usually from the lop-left corner, and then it does not work too well.

There seems to be room for improvement.
