Gromit-MPX – desktop annotation tool

Last Updated on August 11, 2021


Gromix-MPX is a basic but handy annotation tool. The best thing about the program is its ability to toggle on/off functionality which lets you draw on-screen, then disable drawing, and then re-enable drawing on-screen again when needed.

There’s lots of features that would improve the tool such as the ability to draw straight lines, the ability to draw pre-defined shapes and arrows, as well as the ability to change the pen color on the fly.

Gromix-MPX is free and open source software.
