#31741 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Make the mouse cursor disappear during typing

Description

During post typing I often find that the mouse cursor can get in the way of text. This could be a good enhancement to the distraction free writing features.

Relevant CSS3 cursor rules

  • Focuses accessibility removed
  • Keywords reporter-feedback added
  • Version 4.1.1 deleted

Doesn't the browser do that? What browser are you using? Could you give us a screenshot?

  • Focuses accessibility added
  • Keywords close added; reporter-feedback removed
  • Version set to 4.1.1

Thanks for the suggestion majemedia. I think this falls outside of the responsibility of a CMS and falls to the client browser or OS. For example, on OS X the mouse pointer is hidden while you type anyway. I was under the impression that this is also the case on recent versions of Windows, but maybe not.

Recommending wontfix.

Chrome Version 41.0.2272.101 m on Windows 8.1

Unfortunately I can't get you a screenshot because using either the snipping tool or using prtscn removes the cursor from the shot.

I'm ok with this. Mark it as OS Failure :-)

Yeah, that was a stupid request. :) Thanks for the feedback.
