Multi display set-ups are pretty standard these days. Or one big, wide display. That's quite convenient, but often causes one issue: traveling long distances with your mouse or touchpad. It's not great for your wrist, quite inconvenient and time-consuming. Especially, if you're working with many apps at once on multiple monitors.
So I've come up with a solution with a single keystroke, or a single click of a customizable button in my mouse, the cursor goes to the next monitor - either to its last location on this screen, or to previously selected point.
And that's what Cursor Teleporter does.
How does it work?
Cursor Teleporter works in two modes:
- automatic mode – the app moves the cursor to the lastly-used location on the next monitor
- manual mode - you can select any points (even on a single monitor) and the app moves the cursor between them. It's useful for big monitors and for precision-demanding tasks.
Cursor can be teleported by pressing a keyboard shortcut (by default it's Control-Option-Command-X) which you can adjust in Settings.
The application also offers a URL-based API and a helper app Teleport which allows you to integrate Cursor Teleporter with customizable mouse buttons. You can find an example of that integration for Logitech Devices.
Cursor Teleporter allows you to:
- quickly move mouse cursor to the next monitor while remembering the last location on each monitor
- move mouse cursor to selected points which is important for precision-demanding tasks
- choose one of 3 animations which makes finding the cursor easier (animations might be also completely disabled)
- integrate the app with custom mouse buttons using provided URL-based API or Teleport app
- set custom keyboard shortcuts
- launch on system startup
The price is $7.99 and it's one-time purchase. For start, we've discounted it to $4.99 until February 11th, 2024.
