myPoint and Mojave

v2.25
On some Mojave systems myPoint may lag in tracking the mouse pointer or even stop following it.
In such case please activate the "Advanced mouse tracking" option in general preferences panel.
Please note, when this option is selected myPoint will track the mouse position in a more aggressive way. As a result the CPU will be loaded additionally. So if you are away of power cord you may prefer the following:
  • Unselect the "Advanced mouse tracking" option.
  • Use momentary Locator: animated or static ring with display time about a second.
  • Activate the locator via a hotkey.

Voice Over and hotkeys

All versions
There are some issues with hotkeys when Voice Over is ON, especially:
  • All shortcuts that involve both VO keys (Control and Option) are not working.
  • Hotkey editors (our and others) react badly when both VO keys are pressed.
  • Mouse locator activation by tapping on a single modifier key. The locator may be shown when the second VO key is pressed or depressed. This case is valid when the Control or Option key is selected to activate the locator.
Workaround:
  • Change default hotkeys to combinations without Control and Option (⌃⌥).
    I.e. change the locator activation hotkey from “⌃⌥⌘ Space” to “⌘ Space”, “⇧⌘ Space”, “⇧⌥ Space” etc.
  • Try using “⌘” or Function for modifier key only activation.
