We need a float-able magnifying window
With the current resolution limitations of CV1 we need to have a better way to read text. With dash we have a perfect opportunity to have a floating magnifying window. The user can place there windows wherever they want already so now we just need a magnifying glass window with a target sub window. Basically the idea is you place your magnifying window, then you have a target window which is smaller and you place this over one of your other pinned deskops or pinned application windows. This target window should remain unpinned because it should allow for quick access to move it around relative to the pinned window it is trying to magnify. Obviously the magnified portion should be displayed in the magnifying window. We should be able to have multiple of these. For example I might discord open but really all I need to see is the last couple comments of the channel I'm in. So I should be able to make a specific aspect ration magnifying window and place the target right over the bottom portion of discord.
For extra points we should be able to hide the original window and only show the magnified version - because it may only be necessary to see the magnified area anyhow. To simplify this whole process you could allow us to marquee select a portion of any floating pinned window. This would crop the application window being cropped. Then we could scale and place that cropped version wherever we see fit.

I would love to have the ability to crop a section of an app so I can have a better view.
TeamSpeak 3 is a very large window, but I'm only interested in who is in my channel and talking
Discord I'll likely only want to be in one channel
IL2 - I'll want to see my available planeset from the TAW website without seeing the full browser window
Youtube - I'f I'm playing music videos while exploring in ED - all I need is the video window - not the full screen.
All of these would enable a better resolution, with less impact on the performance (I hope)

To add to this we should be able to have multi-cropped windows. Say you wanted to crop the URL bar of a browser window. You could then move and place this/ pin it above you and scaled up so it's easy to see. Then you wanted to grab the top couple reddit posts from that window - crop and place/ pin separately from the URL
