    Well I thought updating Java would fix it for me and while it does seem to have helped, my cursor still disappears fairly often.

  • Tuffdude Level 1 (0 points)

    This is very frustrating. I use photoshop daily for retouching photographs and it happens most when I use the clone and brush tool. My temporary solution is a hot corner I use called 'mission control'. I move my cursor to the top left corner of the screen and all the open windows show, then my mouse cursor reappears. Hope that helps some of you.


    System Preferences - Screensaver - Hot Corners

    Really ridiculous, isn't it? I had to upgrade to Mountain Lion to install Media Composer and I certainly regret it. Very unstable in so many ways. But you know what? It's all worth it because it's REALLLLLY COOOOOOL when I download something and the little download icon takes off like a rocket across the screen and flies into my download folder on the doc, WOW!!!
    Seriously Apple... Just make my lovely cursor stay on the screen. Maybe it got shot down by the flying download...


    In the meantime I will install MC on my old Snow Leopard partition and see what happens...

    @Tuffdude and @Ksteiger and others.


    Have you read my post? (page 11)


    Have you tried to update JAVA SE (7u11) ?




    check your version of java typing java -version in terminal, then try to update it!


    After latest update I had no more "mouse disappear problem"  from months.

  • islandphotographer Level 1 (0 points)

    Sadly that Java update did not help in my case. (I have the cursor disappearing problem in Photoshop only (latest version Creative Cloud)

  • Luigi.T Level 1 (0 points)

    I'm sorry.


    Can you check  your version of java and tell us?


    Type in terminal  java -version .

  • islandphotographer Level 1 (0 points)

    that is the terminal-info:


    java version "1.7.0_11"

    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_11-b21)

    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.6-b04, mixed mode)

    Hey thanks Luigi.T! So far it seems to be working! Had a quick play but it hasn't disappeared yet. How you discovered the java solution is a mystery!

  • Luigi.T Level 1 (0 points)

    The same java version.

    I'm sorry.

    Have you tried to disable completely java? To exclude it.

  • islandphotographer Level 1 (0 points)

    I already have disabled java web plug-in.

    But every 3 month I have to use a ministery site (VAT) that relies on java.

    Therefore I have to enable java every 3 month for this moment ...


    So deleting java complete is not an option right now...

  • Luigi.T Level 1 (0 points)

    I'm glad that it solved your problem as mine.


    I read every post, in every language, for months and some user talked about a java problem (apple doesn't supporto more java updates)


    So I tried to update manually JAVA, everything of java and check in terminal my version (1.6 before).



    Now, are months that I paint in photoshop whitout mouse cursor problems.


    with that problem, digital painting became impossibile!



  • SteveKir Level 3 (545 points)

    You said:


    "I have got 1.6 version.

    I downloaded from oracle's website: tml


    latest version of java SE



    After restart, check the new version in terminal."


    I have Java 1.6 I have a serious mouse disconnection problem (for years!) but I am not keen to alter my system without knowing what I am doing and the possible problems of doing so. The address that you give does not seem (to me) to offer a solution. The whole complex page of many downloads seem to offer an SDK which, as a simple user of the Mac, I certainly don't want to get involved in.


    Can you please tell me where on that page there is a simple updater for Java? I could then download it to my bootable clone to see what happens.

    Just wanted to add my experience in here; Very glad I found this discussion.  Upgraded to 10.8.2 from 10.6.8 three days ago in order to use XCode 4.  I'm a very heavy Photoshop user, currently have CS5.  Today while processing several images I noticed this cursor problem.  Drove me nuts.  I'm using a USB mouse and the behavior seems to be when using large brushes (for example 1600), and you move the mouse over a pallette, the cursor disappears.  Doesn't happen all the time, but I can consistently re-create it.  In other words, I can move the cursor back and forth between the image and the pallette several times and eventually the cursor will disapper.  Command/Tab brings the missing cursor back.  I sure hope this gets resolved quick.  This is very annoying.  I'm going to consider some of the solutions mentioned here.  Thanks for all the information here!

    See my post of 17 January. This Java update was not complex.
