Thanks, Diane,
I found what you're talking...here's a online demo page that shows exactly
what it does.
Starboard software by Hitachi.

>> This is in response to Carolyn's question. I do not have a stylus or
>> anything to write with during my PowerPoint presentations, however, as I
>> am
>> showing a presentation, if I need to write something, or highlight
>> something, I use my mouse. You need to "right click", and this will bring
>> up
>> a drop down menu. Here you have the option of selecting "highlighter,
>> felt
>> tip pen, or ball point pen". You can also change the "pen color". It's
>> great, b/c it allows you to mark or circle things during your
>> presentation,
>> and as you close out your program, it asks "do you want to save changes?"
>> I
>> click "no".
>> Hope this helps!
