Wraparound

2.0b3
18 March 2017

Simplify cursor navigation on unusual screen layouts (beta).

Overview

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, even allowing 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 or vertical screen wrapping to suit your preferences. It also preserves screensavers and Exposé functionality with variable-sized non-wrapping areas at the corners.

What's new in Wraparound

Version 2.0b3:
  • Fix for auto-disabling issue
  • Compatible with macOS 10.12.3

Forgot to add something: Even at "More Responsive", the app still uses only about 3% of the CPU. It even supports dragging files and windows!

Works ok.I like the settings allowing finer definition of where WrapAround works or does not.

That said, Wraparound frequently turns itself off with no warning. I have not been able to find a pattern. Like another user, I use BTT, but not willing to turn it off since I use it too much.

Another problem I have found: I keep my computer on all the time for weeks at a time (except for when it is set to go to sleep); I rarely restart. I have found that when using Wraparound with Skype, the Mac OS X WindowServer jumps to about 100% CPU usage and the computer becomes very unresponsive.

This can happen after a few hours or after a few days and is VERY repeatable. If I run WrapAround OR Skype ALONE, I do not have this problem. This problem also exists with v1.6 but I could not figure out the source so stopped using WrapAround. I only rediscovered the problem when I started using v2.0b2. I am still on Mac OS X 10.6.8.

Restarting is the best way to keep your computer running at its best - I recommend a weekly or twice monthly restart as a best practice. Restarting is less important nowadays, perhaps, but it is still a simple answer to annoying bugs that still occur in both Apple software and non-Apple software, especially memory leaks (a very common occurrence).

Holding the shift key while restarting is also a stellar way to fix more intractable issues that normal restarting doesn't fix...

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 .

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.

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'.
