Description dqueffeulou 2016-02-14 17:57:52 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 8.1 (Build 201510222201)
Operating System = Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.8.0_72
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.72-b15

Reproducibility: Happens every time

* click somewhere in the text editor
* enter text in the editor

 the mouse  is still visible even if I don't move it

The mouse  should be hidden until it is moved.

The mouse should be hidden as soon as text is entered to enhance the visibility on the text because the text entered has chance to go where the mouse is. 
This behavior has been standard in all Mac text editors and I'm wondering why it is still not the case in Netbeans.
