Re: gnome-mag cursor focus position

Hi Peter,
Thank you for your answer.
I was referring to the cursor in applications where you enter text. The mouse pointer is indeed centered when using the magnifier alone or through orca. But I need to use orca if I want gnome-mag to follow text editing or keyboard focus. The cursor is not centered, the magnifier follows it only when it reaches the end of the magnification screen.
I know my "description" isn't very clear, but try to write something in oowriter or gedit while using gnome-mag through orca and you'll see what I mean.
Thanks again,

Hi Aurelian,

If you are running gnome-mag directly (e.g. 'magnifier'), and have it
tracking the mouse directly ( e.g. 'magnifier -m'), then the mouse
pointer will be in the center of the screen automatically by default.

If you are running gnome-mag via a screen reader like Orca or
Gnopernicus, then you need to set the appropriate setting in your screen
reader (e.g. "Mouse tracking mode" to "Centered").
