I have a large monitor set to high resolution and I have enabled Large Pointers and Cursors using the Windows 7 Mouse control panel. I don't have problems viewing the cursor or pointer in any apps except Photoshop and In Design. When I mouse over content, I can't located my insertion point or the pointer. I have to wiggle the mouse and hope to catch it by triangulating it's expected position based on the indicators on both rulers. It's really frustrating and I wondered if anyone knew of any way to modify the cursor/pointer styles in In Design and/or Photoshop. Maybe a plugin or something?
I have tried custom Windows 7 cursors sets, but those options are get overriden by these apps. Any advice of suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I am running CS6 on a Windows 7 64bit machine.
There's a setting on windows that makes rings appear around the cursor when you press the Ctrl key, plus there are other settings to help see here how to do it.
This is what it say's there.
Though I appreciate your reply, I hate to say that I have already done those things. As I indicated above, I even set my mouse points to extra large to ensure that I could see them, but Adobe uses their own mouse handlers. You will notice as I mouse over the various tools in the tool panel, the pointer changes from the Extra Large Windows Scheme to the Adobe custom pointer that is tiny. And then when I am over the active content, the Ctrl-trick doesn't work and mouse tails only work with the arrow pointer, (not Adobe's custom insertion point or precise cursors).
Again, thanks for the reply, but your suggestions don't resolve the problem or help in any way, unfortunately. Still, I really appreciate the time you took to reply.
