Bad design: Stop forcing mouse pointer in Acrobat Reader
Acrobat Reader DC changes the mouse pointer into its own scheme. Not talking about the specific tools, just the standard mouse when hovering over the Acrobat window.
I don't have the best vision, so I have my Windows mouse pointer set to be very visible, or I will lose track of it on the screen. But when using Acrobat, I lose track of the pointer, because Acrobat INSISTS that I don't get to use my custom pointer, but rather use the virtually invisible Acrobat default.
Why would Acrobat need to change the pointer? I get it for specific tools, like drag or magnify or whatever, but just for regular use? NO reason, other than to annoy users as much as possible
This also interferes with magnification software for accessibility, it changes the color and makes the pointer much larger than the pointer in the menus. The tip of the pointer the user has to position in a checkbox is the inner tip as opposed to the outer tip that we typically position in the checkbox.
Second the comments. Poor design.
yes its too frustrating..i really hate this cursor features behaviour.. i really want it gone.. its too much pain in my eyes.. i keep getting distracting ..that black cursor and the box.. and selecting the text in pdf is all such a pain !!! really just why ?? i officially hate adobe dc pdf reader . moving to soemthing else like sumatra reader or will keep searching for better than nothing good adobe.
I have the same problem and I'm not using any custom pointer. I use "Windows Standard (extra large (system schema)" and the pointer becomes tinny when hovering Acrobat Reader window.
You need to follow proper usability rules. Image how many people with poor sight or simply sitting further away from the monitor this causes problems to.
