Mouse Support is a Paid feature. There is a FREE trial for two days. After that you will need to purchase KeyPad to continue to use it. Special price of $0.99 (or international equivalent) for the Mother’s day weekend May 8th and May 9th 2021 please help me spread the word.
Press Control+Option with KeyPad window active to trigger the mouse.
If you like KeyPad, I could use some help. I get about 30 downloads a day worldwide. This is depressingly low. I need your help in getting KeyPad visible. I would really appreciate it if you would give us a rating, and share it with your friends and family.

If this is the first time you have setup KeyPad
With the keypad window active, press control + option key together, and then release them. This will toggle the mouse feature.
Now any movements that you make with the Mouse or Trackpad will be sent to the connected device. The mouse cursor will stop moving on the Mac.
To turn off the mouse, press control + option again. The mouse cursor will start moving on the Mac again.
Please remember to close the settings app in the iPhone or iPad. And also close the System Preferences on the Mac. For some reason, having these apps open degrades bluetooth performance for the mouse.
