Hi Chris,

I’m trying to implement a version of my task in which the subject selects an image by clicking a fixation point. I’d like the mouse cursor to be visible only when in the choice phase of the task. Is there a way to dynamically hide and reveal the cursor during the task? I’ve tried setting the hide_cursor field in the mouse_input object to a variable that I set to NO or YES when I want to reveal/hide the cursor, but have found that this doesn’t work, and the cursor remains hidden.

Let me know if this is unclear. I can stop by your office if so.

Best,

Aída

    No, that isn't possible at present.
