Mouseposť - Exposť the mouse cursor
Authored by: bignumbers on Jan 27, '05 05:37:13AM

I saw this at MacWorld, and grabbed it the next day.

My biggest complaint is that it dims the majority of the screen. The cursor is easier to find, but everything else becomes less readable. As an option I'd like to made modifications to the CIRCLE, not everything else. Best would be to draw a circle around the pointer (a non-filled circle). I do like MousePose because it's just an app that doesn't require installation - I often set up new Macs and give quick trainings, and don't want to truly install anything. I could just run it off a USB flash drive, and take it away when done.

Having better function key options would also be of good benefit.

Mouse Locator
Authored by: Auricle on Jul 08, '06 05:08:38PM

I've been using Mouse Locator which is a preference pane that uses a graphic image to "highlight" the mouse cursor after a period of inactivity. I thought the default image was too large, but you can use another image downloaded from their site or make your own.

You still have to install the preference pane, but it is only necessary for the user you are logged in as - so it can be deleted easily when you are finished with a preso.
