Mouse cursor remains on screen

Aug 17, 2016

I've a mouse cursor effect to a slide. Although it only appears for a short time on the timeline, it remains visible for the duration of the slide. Is there no way to make it disappear (I've tried having a white shape appear over the mouse cursor at the appropriate time but the mouse cursor remains as the top layer in the timeline)?

Hi Christie, yes that's the precise issue but there's no resolution so it's not really helpful. On that discussion Ashley suggests adding in a cursor manually rather than doing a screen recording. This is precisely what I did but again there's no way to prevent the mouse from showing during the entire timeline. Also on that discussion it looks like Elena submitted a feature request for this to be resolved 3 years ago but still nothing? Regards, Brian

Hi Brian,

There isn't a change yet to the behavior and although the feature request was submitted some time ago, that doesn't indicate a status of where it stands in terms of inclusion in a new update/release. We don't have a public roadmap of those things, so we always encourage folks to submit if it's something they'd like to see as the more users asking for something is always a piece that impacts our Product Development teams planning.
