Hey everyone,

 

I'm brushing off some dust from my flash animating skills and quickly came up with this animation. Its a marker that will appear on screen (fade in) and then draw a circle and then disappear (fade out). I plan on using it to highlight items on the screen like buttons instead of using the boring old blinking boxes. Let the animation run as long as you need the circle to appear on screen. Right click to save.

 

*edit: updated the font to look more closely like the sharpie font. Thanks to Jeanette for the idea. 

 

Let me know if and how you use it.

Nice one, Jerson - thanks for sharing this! What does the word on the side of the pen mean?

Ah ok, cool! I guess I was thrown because the font didn't make me think Sharpie.

@ Jeanette

 

I didn't think about trying to match the font with the Sharpie logo.  I just updated it so now it's a bit closer to it. Thanks for the idea.
