Wraparound is an application primarily intended for users with large and/or multiple screens, which allows the mouse cursor to "wrap" around the screens. Rather than spending time and energy moving the cursor across the screen, from one side to the other, simply drag it off one edge and it immediately appears on the other side.

Wraparound can handle even the most abnormal of screen layout configurations, and even allow windows and other objects to be dragged though screen edges. And if you're worried about not being able to hit your menu bar or dock without the edge to stop the cursor, you can always turn off horizontal more...

What's New

There seems to be an issue with Wraparound and "App Tamer". I have a multimonitor setup (but that's probably not the issue) and App Tamer.

App Tamer is a tool which freezes an inactive application to reduce the CPU use. It works very well on OSX 10.6.8.

However Wraparound gets disabled every time when the mouse (focus) switches from an active application to an inactive (frozen through App Tamer) application. I am moving my mouse from one monitor with active application to another monitor with inactive application. After the mouse moves and the inactive application gets reactivated, Wraparound is STOPPED and I have to manually restart it from the menu. This happens every time when I do the steps above.

Actually forget it - it's not only App Tamer. Wraparound stops by itself at any point of time. I have to restart it manually. I checked to Console logs but there is nothing with the entry for Wraparound. It doesn't show any error or conflicts. Unfortunately there is no shortcut to enable Wraparound so I can't even use something like a script to enable it if it gets disabled. Is there a command line switch for this?

I keep replying to myself as Mr. Bean would do :) I am observing it's at least BetterTouchTool which causing at least some of the problems with WrapAround. When I do anything where BTT is triggered, it would make the WrapAround stop working (it just disables itself, it's icon becomes gray and I have to manually restart it).
I understand there is no guarantee on tools like this, but BetterTouchTool has been around a while, it's a well respected tool and for many of us a must have.
Thanks.

Absolutely Excellent. Thank you for your effort and making this compatible with OSX 10.6.8. I am using Matrox Triplehead2go and being able to wrap mouse around the right most corner to left most corner is absolute must.

Feature request:
I would like to be able to define split zones. For example divide the upper and lower zone into 2 half zones and assign different behaviour to them. For example: The left bottom zone - no action. The right bottom zone warp around the left top. The left top zone wrap around the bottom right. The right top zone - no action.

It could go more complex with 3 zones arrangement.

The reason we need this is because Matrox Powerdesk software doesn't provide vertical screen arrangement. It only has horizontal display arrangement (unless you have multiple graphic cards). So while horizontal arrangement is good for gamers (Matrox is the gamers religion), for video editors and programmers, it's nightmare for anybody who needs vertically arranges screens.

Wraparound is definitively the right direction and thank you for your effort. This app, Wormhole and MouseWarp are great help.

I am still looking for an application which would allow me to define split hotzones on the screen and then assign actions when mouse reaches them where action would be jumping to another screen. (In Matrox, the screens act as one vrtual maxi screen, so they are not seen as separate displays.) If anybody knows about a tool to assign actions and "mouse warps" to hotzones on the screen, please post it here or please send me PM. Thank you .

Does this version (2.0b2) work with System 10.9.2? It will not start on my machine. {This version worked fine with Sys 10.9.1.}

It works fine for me on 10.9.2. What happens when you try to launch it?

Now it seems to be working fine. I think I did something to make it work, but I cannot remember whether I did, much less what I did.
Sorry,
Steve

It just would not open (was it is doing now). Then it worked fine for a while. Now it will not open!!

What worked this time (and perhaps others) was to click the 0n line in the menu marker. This IS a bug. Fortunately the way to get around it is easy>

Version 2.02b2 seems to be fine with System 10.9.3 except that with this system and at least 10.9.2 and maybe further back it seems to turn itself off at random times. If I go to the menu, I can always turn it on again, but no other prefpane does this. Any suggestions anyone

Great little utility!

It was a bit buggy in 10.6.8, but this recent build has fixed that.

(This pane NEEDS a way to adjust star ratings after they've been clicked other than starting all over!)

I do not see what the complaint is! What I am saying is the the app does NOT work with 10.9.This I would think would be of interest to potential users. If some one else can get it to work with Mavericks fine! Please tell me how! Otherwise, perhaps it is a conflict with the software already on my machine. In this case, please tell me. (I did like the app when it worked.)

Can you elaborate on what problem you're having (if you're still having one)? Wraparound 2.x was entirely developed and tested on 10.9

Works in 10.6.8 despite 10.7.4 caveat except for clicking on edges to enable/disable, and I can't reverse "Enable All (edges)".

I don't know whether it's a bug or incompatibility.

Thanks for the feedback. It does seem to be a 10.6 issue. I won't be explicitly adding support for pre-10.7, but I am trying to fix this particular issue for the next build.

A fix will be appreciated; thanks. (Please don't forget that despite Apple's game plan, close to 30% of OS X users are still running !0.6!)

Unfortunately, I don't have a 10.6.x machine anymore, so I have to rely on my users for that kind of testing these days. The good news is, I did manage to fix this one, and 2.0b2 should show up here soon!

I just installed v 2.0b2, and wrapping now toggles on and off as expected.

Thanks for the quick update! :)

(I experienced an anomaly wherein top/bottom-wrapping wouldn't toggle, but a reinstall corrected it.)

Wraparound is one of my favorite Utilities, installed on every Mac I have (and had), ever since I discovered it.
1.6 works now great again on Lion with two Monitors!
Very usefull on wide screens - or two Monitors, but I use it as well on my MacBook 13'.

This update for some reason broke the functionality. Trashed prefs & reinstalled to no avail.

Great idea for mouse users. Tablet users with a stylus, it's pointless since the tablet stylus will use the entire screen area you can't really "wrap" the cursor movement with the stylus. It does wrap around, but unlike a mouse, when you move the stylus it's back under your cursor as expected. Great idea. Great price point! If you've got multiple screens and a mouse, I'm sure it's great.
