  • Type: Incorrect Functionality

  • OS Version Affected: Mac OS X 10.4 Intel
  • Status: Open


Some java applications seem to get around shades for their mouse cursor.

E.g. in Zend Studio Neon Beta ( trial download at at 60% brightness on external macbook pro monitor, it's almost impossible to see the insert-caret mouse cursor.

Wonder how they manage to get around the clut table ! (maybe they set some transparency) ?

Need to add: this also happens when for instance in firefox on built-in monitor, and simply moving cursor to external monitor without any clicks.

My I-beam cursor becomes nearly invisible too in certain programs.

Also happens in Dreamweaver CS4. If shades is used to really dim the screen, the cursor disappears completely.
