using it in Pro Apps training great for those small cursors !

Mousepose for windows

Mouseposé is great for highlighting parts of slides in presentations, but only if you use PowerPoint -- it doesn't work for Keynote 1.0 (perhaps someone with iWork can check if Keynote 2.0 enables the function keys -- a big request I have, since Exposé also doesn't work with a running Keynote 1.0 presentation).

Hello.
I just downloaded Mousepose1.1 and tried to use it with the just installed iWork/Keynote.
I am sad to report, that Mousepose doesn't work in Keynotes Presentation Mode...
Please add this feature fast, programmers..

Very nice (nasty) trick on your friend.!

But quite easy to recover from, and it doesn't harm anything :). Now, if I made it faceless, and could find a way to assign it to any key (like 'A'), then it'd be a bit more devious ... hehe.
-rob.

Making this a faceless background app with the Info.plist trick (adding 'LSUIElement' and 'NSUIElement' entries) works quite nicely. The only thing I'd like to see is to have the pointer genuinely highlighted, instead of just being in a cut-out circle--if your chosen mask color matches a window's contents or your wallpaper it's still tricky to find the pointer.

Heh. Fun piece of software. Thanks for 'pointing' it out. :D
A couple of things I noticed.
Mouseposé doesn't seem to handle interface elements WITHIN a window, like pop up menus, sliders etc. If you try manipulating them while using Mouseposé, the circle stays fixed in place, while your mouse moves along the interface element, such as the pull down menu. Too bad. Hopefully they will address that in a future update. It does work with regular application menus though.
Second, upon quick examination, it does NOT look like it works within Keynote 2. However, I know Keynote 2 has a more interactive mode, so you can create kiosk type presentations. It's possible it may work in that type of presentation, since you would need access to the mouse. Right now, I think it doesn't work because Keynote hides the mouse altogether.

I would be sold IF the activation key was customizable and making it faceless was built in to the UI. Otherwise it's pretty good.

Power corrupts. PowerPoint corrupts absolutely.

Actually, mine seems to be working, at least when I scoll in Safari

Just tried it out, and I like Mouseposé... but,
it puts a 'gmon.out' file at the root level of
my HD. It currently displaces about 14.6 megs,
and it seems to contain a listing of system files,
some stuff in my user library, and whole lotta
null chars (ascii 0x00). Seems like a waste of
space (as well as being rather presumptuous).
Is it really necessary? Can we trick it out?
-HI-

No thoughts... anyone?

Mouseposé

Create a file /gmon.out of size zero.
Make it readonly.
$touch /gmon.out
$chmod a-w /gmon.out
Seems to work.

Many, many thanks.
And... after adding it to the .hidden list, I can
finally say goodbye to the elephant in the room.
:-)

gmon.out is used for profiling applications. You do that to measure and then improve application performance.
Usually apps aren't shipped linked against the profiling libraries but perhaps this one was. The author might want to hear about it.

Brilliant!
A few suggestions:
Provide an option to make it a background app (i.e. no icon in the dock once lanuched, maybe even a System Prefs Panel type thing?)
PLEASE do NOT disable the 'paste' function when entering license codes! We should be able to copy from the email and paste it in ...
For some reason, F16 was not an option in the F-Key list.
Apple should pay buy this code from you and add it to the OS. Great idea!
Now is only somone would implement 'mouse trails'. ....

On the license code thing, if you read the email carefully, all you have to do is select the entire email's contents, hit copy, then click in the reg box's area -- presto, code entered!

I thought too hard on that one. I read those instructions, but I thought they were written poorly.

I saw this at MacWorld, and grabbed it the next day.
My biggest complaint is that it dims the majority of the screen. The cursor is easier to find, but everything else becomes less readable. As an option I'd like to made modifications to the CIRCLE, not everything else. Best would be to draw a circle around the pointer (a non-filled circle). I do like MousePose because it's just an app that doesn't require installation - I often set up new Macs and give quick trainings, and don't want to truly install anything. I could just run it off a USB flash drive, and take it away when done.
Having better function key options would also be of good benefit.

I've been using Mouse Locator which is a preference pane that uses a graphic image to 'highlight' the mouse cursor after a period of inactivity. I thought the default image was too large, but you can use another image downloaded from their site or make your own.

You still have to install the preference pane, but it is only necessary for the user you are logged in as - so it can be deleted easily when you are finished with a preso.

Like posted below, Mouseposé doesn't work with Keynote 2.0!
I just emailed to Boinx Software to add this feature.
I'll post, if they reply....

Mousepose mac

Loving the Mac. User since 1989.

It's SUCKS!
Any system language using double bytes, S-Chinese, T-Chinese, Japanese etc. can't launch this app. I paid for this software coz I used 1.3 and it's great. But now? SUCKS

Mousepose Unexpectedly Quits Mac

By the way, seems they don't reply any bug feedback. I had reported double bytes issue twice. first time on 04/Jan/07, there wasn't any message from this company but just a auto reply until today.
