When I am typing an eMail, especially when replying to an eMail, the cursor suddenly disappears. In order to get the cursor to come back I have to save the message and close the message then reopen the message.


Has anyone experienced this problem? It is only since upgrading from Lion to Mountain Lion that I have seen this problem.


Best regards,

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion, Also a Mac SE running 6.0.4 - not upgrading that!

    I have it as well. Very annoying. I use e-mail constantly and it's slowing me down...


    First time someone else seems to have the same basic operations problem I do.

    I'm having exactly the same problem. No ideas what's causing it. I do use CopyPaste too though.

    Yes, whenever I use Photoshop the curson disappears constantly.  I have to click on any area of the desktop to get it back.  Then it is back for a minute or two, and gone again.  It is very annoying!  This only started since I installed Mountain Lion a few days ago.  I hope there is a patch coming for this.  What I've learned: never be an early adapter on these new OS releases.  This in only one of many problems I've had.

    Same here. Especially in Photoshop, but also starting to notice it in Mail as well.

    Same problem here.

    Still happening for me.  I suspect we'll have to wait for 10.8.1 for a fix.

    The issue only occurs in Mail for me., as per thread title and earlier comments by me.

    I'm having the same problem.

    I don't think this is related to a specific app. So far I've seen this problem in Safari, Stickies and Notes. I found some people saying they see this when they use the zoom feature of Accessibility, but in my case it doesn't seem to have anything to do with the zoom feature.
