Cursor disappears in Altium Designer 10 in the CAMtastic window
|Reported by:||DK707||Owned by:|
There is a bug in the Windows Guest addition driver that causes Altium's CAMtastic cross-hair cursor to disappear when it is moved into the black workspace of the CAMtastic window. I can make it work properly with the following workarounds.
Here are the details:
- If I disable mouse integration everything works fine (the cursor doesn't disappear)
- If right click on the desktop and set the Hardware acceleration slider to one step below full in the Troubleshoot tab of the display properties dialog I get the proper cursor operation even with Virtualbox's mouse integration active.
I think this may have something to do with an exclusive-or operation that is not working properly in the driver. I attempted to take a screen-capture of the CAMtastic window with the cursor failing and have had no success. The cursor is invisible in my screen-capture. What is really odd is if I do one of the aforementioned steps to get around the cursor bug, I can now capture the cursor with the KDE screen-capture tool. I have attached an image of the *WORKING* cursor. When it is failing the white part of the cross-hair entering the black workspace is missing (it is black like the background).
Again, this is by no means a showstopper now that I have found these workarounds. I am reporting it as the issue may turn out to be more serious in other situations.
