Mouse Pointer Alignment
on May 25, 2016 at 8:45:43 pm

Hey folks!

I've had a strange issue crop up today, it was not resolved by restarting the software or rebooting my machine. The issue at hand is that my mouse pointer is not targeting where the mouse is. It is targeting an inch below where the mouse visually is. It's only happening in Premiere.

I know this sometimes occurs in certain software when the program's resolution differs from the desktop. Any help would be fantastic.

Specs:

- Premiere 9.2.0 (41) Build
- OSX El Captain 10.11
- IMac 5k
- AMD Radeon R9 M395X 4096 MB

I should note that this only happens when I'm dragging something, holding the mouse button down.

I don't have an answer to this but my coworker was experiencing a very similar issue, alignment was off by maybe a couple mouse pointer widths. Not sure what fixed his problem. I chalk it up to what seems to be Premiere's main initiative, "More bugs, less features".

This has been a real problem for me for months have you had any help in getting it fixed?

I'm pretty sure you pegged it, the resolution of your monitor. When I switched from a regular computer monitor to a 720p HDTV as a monitor everything was fine but when I then changed to a 1080p my mouse was off by at least an inch. But on my new PC it's fine, even with the same monitor. But I'm pretty sure that is the source of your problem.

Yes I sorted out the issue. If you are running dual monitors, disconnect the secondary monitor. Allow your computer to recalibrate for one monitor, and then plug the second one in.

For some reason having dual monitors, depending on your premiere set-up, will throw off the Mouse Alignment. Not sure what causes it for certain, but I do know that the above method will correct.

The disconnect/reconnect work around is one way to solve this bug, but I found a simpler/faster one that is so dumb but works. Hold-click on the application window top bar and wiggle your cursor/mouse. Let go and mapping is corrected. Best if Adobe fixed this weird issue, but I hope this helps in the meantime.

I am having a similar issue that just started recently on only one of my systems and makes absolutely no sense. In my case absolutely nothing has changed on my system, not even a PP update. If I right click in a Bin even all the way to the right on my right monitor the dialoge box opens about two to three inches from the left edge of my left monitor.

Talk about ridiculous and annoying. I've tried clearing all of PP's preferences, a complete uninstall and re-install etc. with no success. I will give your suggestions a try and hopefully they fix it. If not I will be back to ask for some other suggestions.

Gonna cross my fingers and hope you suggestion help.

Thanks
