Cursor Issues in Windows 11

Mar 10, 2022


I am experiencing an issue in Storyline 3 where my cursor disappears and behaves erratically with certain objects. When I move the cursor over the workspace, it disappears and seems to wrap to the other side of the workspace. I think the cursor speed increases drastically while it's hidden, causing the wrapping effect. If I add a shape, the cursor reappears over the workspace, but disappears when hovering over the shape, and again, seemingly wraps to the other side of the shape. While moving the shape, the cursor speed increases drastically. The cursor reappears if I hover over the resizing and rotation tools, but it flickers.

Even on starting Storyline, when I hover over "New Project", "Record Screen", etc., the cursor disappears and wraps to the other side of the objects.

I hope there will be a solution for this soon--Storyline is unusable for me with this issue. Please let me know if you can help!

With respect,

 I have a few questions to narrow down the issue:

Hi Maria, I'm no longer trying to resolve the issue. This was just one of several issues I had trying to run Storyline on an M1 chip. Overall, the amount of troubleshooting I've had to do has been costly in terms of lost productivity. Just putting it out there for other users who are considering a jump to M1--it's not a good idea!
