Cursor zoom mac os x

This is a great hint. It makes watching those small videos online that don't themselves zoom that much easier. As has already been pointed out, you can change how the focus moves.

In addition to the methods noted this hint that basically hide the cursor, I came across one probably bug-borne trick which allows one to move the cursor without shifting the screen. First, you zoom in just a little bit, then wait. After a brief delay, the zoom feature will give up and pop back to regular full-screen mode. The keyboard zoom shortcut, Command-Option-plus, zooms too coarsely to do this -- you must use Control and the mouse wheel. After that, zoom back in heartily, and the screen will not doggedly track the mouse anymore!
