1. Remove myPoint icon from menu bar extras

This icon can be removed from menu bar extras - a useful approach for low resolution monitors.
Open myPoint menu and click on the "General preferences" item.
Deselect the "Show myPoint icon in menu bar extras" checkbox.
Safety note:
If you are using hotkeys please remember the "Toggle icon visibility" hotkey - it's the fastest way to return myPoint in menu bar extras.
Default combination is ⇧⌃⌥⌘ Space.

4. Hide tools when mouse pointer is invisible

The advanced text processing software hides mouse cursor when the text is editing. myPoint can track mouse visibility so the edited text will not be obscured by the Locator and Halo.
  • Open myPoint panel.
  • Select the Halo and Locator checkboxes under the "Hide tools when mouse pointer is invisible" label. Now myPoint will respect the visibility of mouse pointer.
  • Unselect the Halo and Locator checkboxes. Now myPoint will keep its tools visible regardless the visibility of mouse pointer.

5. Advanced mouse tracking

Some third party software change mouse position without broadcasting all mouse events.
In such a case you can select the "Advanced mouse tracking" checkbox so myPoint will try to workaround.
Note: This feature will increase the CPU load. So avoid it on laptops.
