Q: How do I remove Mouse Locator?

Mouse Locator can be removed from your Mac by launching the installer and selecting 'Uninstall' from the file menu.



Q: How can I change the yellow circle used for the button click indicator?

Create a PNG graphic and save it as a file named 'MouseIndicatorButton.png'.

Place this file at the top level of your Pictures folder.

Open System Preferences, select the Mouse Locator preferences pane and turn the 'Activate Mouse Locator' checkbox off and then on again.



Q: Is Mouse Locator compatible with Macs with Intel processors?

Mouse Locator version 1.1 is compatible with Macs using both PowerPC and Intel processors.

Note: Version 1.1 requires Mac OS X version 10.4 or later.

Mouse Locator version 1.0 is not compatible with Macs using Intel processors.



Q: When I use Exposé the locator moves away from the pointer, can I prevent this?

Note: This feature available in Mouse Locator version 1.0 only.

Open System Preferences and select the Mouse Locator Preferences.

Turn off the checkbox: 'Activate Mouse Locator'.

Hold down Option (alt) key.

Keeping the key held down, turn on the checkbox: 'Activate Mouse Locator'.

When the Exposé Immunity sheet appears, turn on the Exposé Immunity checkbox. Mouse Locator will be restarted and will attempt to make changes to prevent Exposé from moving the locator.

This feature uses undocumented routines in Mac OS X and may prevent Mouse Locator from working.

If you suspect that your version of Mac OS X is incompatible with this feature, use the Mouse Locator installer to uninstall Mouse Locator. This will remove the Mouse Locator preferences. Reinstall Mouse Locator to get a clean installation of the Mouse Locator software.

Switch to the application tab in the Virtual Desktop preferences panel.

Click on the '+' button below the application list on the left.

Navigate to your home directory, then into the Library folder and finally into the PreferencePanes folder. Select the MouseLocator.prefpane item. The MouseLocatorAgent application will be added to the list.

Select MouseLocatorAgent in the list.

Turn on the checkbox: 'Show this application's windows on all desktops'.

Quit the CodeTek Virtual Desktop application.

In the Mouse Locator preferences panel, turn on the checkbox: 'Activate Mouse Locator'.
