I am running Mountain Lion on an older iMac (2007) 4 gb ram, and newer (2011) Macbook Pro with 8 gb of ram. Cursor disappears and
will not comeback without click in finder or another program. Huge waste of time. I have spotted any answers that work. Help?
Have you checked to see if all your software is up to date? This includes both OS X and Photoshop. For OS X updates, click the Apple in the top left, and choose Software Update. For Photoshop, you'll find and Updates option under the Help menu.
Let us know how it goes.
I did a bit of digging around, and I came across a few things.
1. Are you using a Wacom tablet, by any chance? If so, make sure the drivers are up to date. If that doesn't work, try disabling the tablet, and see if the issue still occurs.
2. You may want to zap your PRAM. Restart your Mac, and hold down the following keys, right after you hear the 'chime'. Command+Option+P+R. Keep holding them down until you hear a second 'chime'.
3. Once the RAM is reset, repair your disk permissions. Find Disk Utility through Spotlight (magnify glass, top right). Once your in Disk Utility, select your hard drive, and press the Repair Disk Permissions button.
A few Adobe engineers scour these forums, so many one of them knows if this is a common issue.
I wonder if Apple is pushing it on Adobe and vice versa. I hope they do fix it, and more importantly that they officially recognize it as a bug. I have had the same issues in Firefox. I am running two displays, both on my iMac and Macbook Pro. Thanks.
Thanks for the help. I had recently rebuilt my laptop, so I ran through the PRAM, and all the other suggestions, as a preemptive srtike, but I hadn't done it to the iMac.
I say this with caution, but it hasn't disappeared yet. I will just go through the reboot process each times it happens, until there is a permanent fix. sigh.
Thank you so much for your time,
(SketchM0nkey, which I do use, without an 0, but a o, was the only combo I could find for this forum. Someone snived my name and my company name.)
I appreciate it. I seem to have the magical ability to find the most bizarre glitches and bugs in any operating system or software. It is still happening, but I click on something in finder, or another app, and hello cursor!, which summarily disappears again, either immediately or after a few minutes.
I appreciate the feedback.
Chris I just got onto Mountain Lion and am getting the disappearing cursor. I only have one dislay, and it only happens in Photoshop. Was there a solution for this yet? thanks.
PS, do I get automatic notification by joining this thread, or do I have to manually subscibe and if so how?
