    i checked out the downloads section of the apple website and found this cool application. just thought others will also find it useful.

    about it: (from the download page)

    "An essential for everyone doing demos at tradeshows, presentations, trainings or those individuals with huge and high resolution displays. Mouseposé dims the screen and puts a spotlight on the area around the mouse pointer, easily guiding the audiences attention or to quickly locate the mouse pointer.

    With the Mouseposé application running in the background, hitting a user definable hot key turns on the Mouseposé effect, dimming the screen and putting the mouse pointer into a spotlight that makes it easy to locate. The desktop behind it remains functional, so that applications can be used while Mouseposé is turned on."

    Why doesn't keynote have a cursor during presentations? Was hoping this app could be applied to keynote as well for those specific instances wherein u need to concentrate on a certain graph or object. sayang. :(

    actually you can set your cursor to appear during presentations. just tick the box when you set it up in the preferences. HTH:)

    hey hannibal, i can't seem to find the option for it.
    there's none listed in the preference menu of keynote.

    Sorry if a bit OT.

    heads-up:

    mouseposé is now 2.0. it's no longer free though. $9.95.
