Mouse Cursor - Needs More Features and Control

Jul 26, 2019

I would like more control over the manually inserted Mouse movement.

  • Control the start point and end-point independently. Maybe even choose an exact location of the start and end via Size and Position. 
  • Choose the size and color of the cursor like end-points on a line can be changed.
  • Change the length of the path - the default is far too travels the entire length of the screen.
  • Change the length of the path without changing the speed...enter slowly and smoothly no matter if it's 2 seconds or 10 seconds.
  • Have it change from the arrow to the finger when it hovers over the target.
  • Change the size, color and shape of the Click Effect.
  • I'm also not able to fade it in when I want it to show on screen(?) I don't want the arrow to be on screen while describing a feature. It should fade on after I've explained and then called the need for action.

Is any of this possible now OR does anyone have a work-around?

Hi Doug, 

Thanks for reaching out and sharing the features that you would like to see for the mouse cursor.

You mentioned that you were manually adding this item, so I wasn't sure if you'd considered using an icon and a motion path for a bit more control and customization.

Here is some documentation on motion paths and I've attached a very rough example.
