Cursorcerer

2.021 October 2014

Hide your cursor with a handy global hotkey.

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.

Version 2.0:
  • 64-bit version for OS X 10.10 Yosemite
  • Reduced the minimum possible threshold time to hide an inactive cursor
  • Preferences for autohiding will now always be respected after reboots

Requirements for Cursorcerer

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.

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.

This program is useful for getting rid of the mouse while watching YouTube in fullscreen, but it has some serious drawbacks: 1. Relies on a daemon that was using 17 MB real memory after one minute of operation (yikes!) 2. No button in the prefpane to activate/deactivate the daemon (had to use Acivity Monitor to quit, don't know if it will come back again at login)

Haven't really noticed any problems and it's no big deal to stop the process with activity monitor. Otherwise exactly what I was looking for. Kudos to the developer...many thanks
