How can we improve Premiere Pro?

BUG: Mouse disappears at random

It's not just Lumetri or captioning that causes the mouse to disappear. It seems to happen to some people and not to others. I work at a place with 12 editors and half of them are having this issue where the mouse disappears for some reason. The mouse works fine, it's still there, under Premiere, working like a charm in Finder and every other application. ADOBE, PLEASE FIX THIS!!!

    I've been having this issue a lot and just figured out that if I 'reset to saved layout' under the workspaces menu that it fixed my issue. Tried that after I read the previous comment about having windows overlapping on monitors. I don't have it setup that way but wondering if when my computer sleeps (company IT has mandatory sleep settings) that my windows shift slightly.

    I have the same problem on Windows 10 Pro, 1803, version 17134.345.
    Only seems to happen when Premiere is on Monitor 2, but it's annoying.

    My mouse cursor disappears randomly but most often when I close a project and open another. Need to quit premiere and relaunch to get it back. happens about every 3rd time. Multi monitor using nvidia quadro on windows 10.

    Hi Mitch,
    Thanks for the response, I have some editors testing this out, but others with the same issue have all of Premiere on a single monitor or their Premiere panels are nowhere near the edges of the monitors. So, this might help some, but it's not fixing the issue for most.

    Hi Ben,
    If you are using multiple monitors and have Premiere Pro broken out into separate panels (ala FCP7), make sure that there are no panels overlapping from one monitor into another. Having even one pixel from a panel shared across both screens can cause strange mouse behaviors like this.
