Request for feature to "lock" or freeze" the magnified area then move the magnified area to a different location on the screen, so it is possible to have a magnified area with an arrow back to the normal sized area on the screen. Clearer for instructions than a magnified area that obscures the standard area.

Or make the tool even better - see here for an example (image also attached), where the magnified image and its origin are even clearer: http://graphicdesign.stackexchange.co...
(I suspect the example in that image is manually created).

This is one of the top requests we’ve gotten in the last several months. Adding this functionality to the magnify tool is something we wanted to get in for the 13.0 and 4.0 release. But we ran out of time. We’ve focused efforts on solving some other some other problems for this upcoming release. But we will definitely keep this in mind when we revisit our work on callouts and specifically the magnify tool.

Are there any additional changes to the magnify tool that you would see as valuable?

Hi Chris

Love this new feature. Would love to see different shapes of magnification, such as rectangle or ellipse rather than just circle.
