Saw the "Round Glass" is listed there. That is actually a demo for screening: open its halo menu and pin it down. Then play with the "show" options at the bottom. E.g., after you "show screen over source" you can use multiple halo-clicks to get a halo for either the embedded ellipse or the magnifier.

By using a screener you could for example paint your own magnifier. I did that in the attached project.

Not sure why the screener thingy isn't in the object catalog on its own, maybe because it's a bit hard to figure out.
