VidGrid’s drawing tool lets you draw on-screen with your cursor while the recorder is launched. When enabled, you can draw anywhere on your screen, not just within the screen recorder’s boundaries.

Make sure you're not in webcam only mode to use the drawing feature.
When recording, or while a recording is paused, the microphone icon on the recorder hub will turn into a paintbrush icon.
Click this paintbrush icon to enable drawing. Your cursor will now turn into the drawing tool, allowing you to draw on screen whenever you click and move your cursor. (Hotkey: Alt + A)
To change your cursor back to normal, press the “x” icon on the screen recorder. Leaving drawing mode still leaves your drawings on screen. (Hotkey: Alt + A)
To clear all drawings on screen, click on the “clear” icon on the far right of the recorder. (Hotkey: Alt + X)
To undo the your last draw stroke, click on the “undo” icon to the right of the record button. Clicking undo will also undo the last “clear” as well. (Hotkey: Alt + Z)
To change the drawing tool’s color, click on the colored circle to the left of the record button and select a new color. (Hotkey: Alt +➡ )
Pro Tip: If you have a touch screen PC or Surface Pro that can run the VidGrid recorder, you can use a stylus or your finger to draw on screen!
