DMT Cursor

Control movement of cursor between monitors. The cursor can be locked to a monitor or made sticky, so extra effort is required to move it between monitors.

'Cursor' options

Cursor

These options allow you to control how the cursor moves between the screens.

The cursor can be in one of three modes:

  • Free - the cursor is free to move unhindered between screens
  • Sticky - there is resistance to moving the cursor between screens
  • Locked - the cursor is locked onto a single screen

Cursor free to move between screens

This will return cursor movement to the default state where the cursor is allowed to move freely between the screens.

If the hotkey for this option is left as disabled, then the hotkeys for Cursor movement between screens is sticky and Lock cursor onto screen work as toggle keys. If this hotkey is defined, then the sticky and lock hotkeys do not toggle.

Cursor movement between screens is sticky

The cursor is allowed to move between screens, but there is some resistance to moving between the screens. You can adjust the resistance using the Resistance to movement between screens slider.

Lock cursor onto screen

This locks the cursor onto the screen and may not move off the screen no matter how much you move the mouse.

To move the cursor to another screen, you would have to switch to another mode, or use one of the options below.

Move cursor to next screen

This will move the cursor to the next screen.

Move cursor to previous screen

This will move the cursor to the previous screen.

Center cursor on primary screen

This will move the cursor to the center of the primary screen.

Resistance to movement between screens

This slider controls the resistance to moving the cursor between screens when in Sticky mode.

This effectively controls the extra distance that the mouse must move before it is allowed to move to the next screen.

Allow cursor to move freely if this key is pressed

If this is checked, then regardless of mode, you can freely move the cursor between screens while the selected key is pressed. Any one of the Control or Shift keys (left or right) may be chosen.

Allow cursor to move freely if this button is pressed

If this is checked, then regardless of mode, you can freely move the cursor between screens while the selected mouse button is pressed.

Allow cursor to return freely to the primary screen

If this is checked, then regardless of mode, you can freely move the cursor over a screen boundary if the cursor is being moved onto the primary screen.

Default cursor mode on startup

Allows the cursor mode to be automatically set when DMT starts.
