Cursorcerer overview

Cursorcerer allows you to hide the cursor at any time by use of a global hotkey. It can also autohide an idle cursor and bring it back as soon as you move the mouse.

Useful for hiding the cursor when using the control-scrollwheel zoom trick to make videos and flash content full screen.

To install, just double click on the prefpane. Hit control-option-k to zap and unzap the cursor. If you want to uninstall, go to ~/Library/PreferencePanes/ and trash Cursorcerer.

This has a bug where if I go into an app where it would normally automatically hide my cursor or replace it with a different one (Minecraft for example), it would still show up on top of the cursor that's meant to be used for the app. If I use the hotkey to remove the main cursor as soon as I move the app-specific cursor it would reappear again. Can you please fix this bug

I used to use Unclutter on Debian, and always missed it on OS X, so was well pleased to find this. It's the same, only a little bit better.

Many video sites are programs are incapable of hiding your obtrusive cursor while videos are playing. This simple tool fixes that, and I am having no problems with it. I appreciate that you can make any hotkey work the cursor hide, to make it easy for you to remember. You can also set a timer, such as "hide cursor after 20 seconds idle. Love this.
