hello, I’m Kaycinho, The Digital Alchemist, and today I’m going to teach you how to create a custom mouse cursor that magically snaps to elements, and we’ll do that with Elementor Pro coupled with a script.

Let’s give credit where it’s due: this tutorial is based on the great, yet lightweight MagicMouse.JS script.

Css Code

Step 1 – Magic Mouse

In Wp > Elementor > Custom Code -> create a new document with the following code:

					<script type="text/javascript">
"use strict";function magicMouse(e){if((e=e||{}).outerWidth=e.outerWidth||30,e.outerHeight=e.outerHeight||30,e.cursorOuter=e.cursorOuter||"circle-basic",e.hoverEffect=e.hoverEffect||"circle-move",e.hoverItemMove=e.hoverItemMove||!1,e.defaultCursor=e.defaultCursor||!1,"disable"!=e.cursorOuter){var t=document.createElement("div");t.setAttribute("id","magicMouseCursor"),document.body.appendChild(t);var r=document.getElementById("magicMouseCursor")}if(!e.defaultCursor){"none";var s=document.createElement("div");s.setAttribute("id","magicPointer"),document.body.appendChild(s);var o=document.getElementById("magicPointer")}if(r){"px","px";var i=e.outerWidth,a=e.outerHeight,n=e.outerWidth,c=e.outerHeight}var u=0,d=0,l=0,m=0,h=!1;document.addEventListener("mousemove",(function(e){l=e.clientX,m=e.clientY,setTimeout(()=>{h||(u=e.clientX-i/2,d=e.clientY-a/2)},50)})),document.querySelectorAll(".magic-hover").forEach((t,r)=>{t.addEventListener("mouseenter",r=>{switch(e.hoverEffect){case"circle-move":f(t),e.hoverItemMove&&b(r,t);break;case"pointer-blur":y(t,"pointer-blur");break;case"pointer-overlay":y(t,"pointer-overlay")}}),t.addEventListener("mouseleave",r=>{switch("translate3d(0,0,0)",e.hoverEffect){case"circle-move":g();break;case"pointer-blur":p("pointer-blur");break;case"pointer-overlay":p("pointer-overlay")}})});var v=()=>{r&&("matrix(1, 0, 0, 1, "+u+", "+d+")","px","px"),o&&("matrix(1, 0, 0, 1, "+l+", "+m+") translate3d(-50%, -50%, 0)"),requestAnimationFrame(v)};requestAnimationFrame(v);const f=e=>{if(h=!0,r){"transform 0.2s, width 0.3s, height 0.3s, border-radius 0.2s",r.classList.add("is-hover");var t=event.currentTarget.getBoundingClientRect();e.classList.contains("magic-hover__square")?(r.classList.add("cursor-square"),u=t.left,,i=t.width,a=t.height):(u=t.left,,i=t.width,a=t.height)}o&&o.classList.add("is-hover")},g=()=>{h=!1,r&&(i=n,a=c,"transform 0.07s, width 0.3s, height 0.3s, border-radius 0.2s",r.classList.remove("cursor-square"),r.classList.remove("is-hover")),o&&o.classList.remove("is-hover")},y=(e,t)=>{o&&o.classList.add(t)},p=e=>{o&&o.classList.remove(e)},b=(e,t)=>{e.clientX,e.clientY,t.addEventListener("mousemove",e=>{"matrix(1,0,0,1,"+(", "+(")"})}}

Step 2 – Magic Options

In Wp > Elementor > Custom Code -> create a new document with the following code:

					<script type="text/javascript">
    options = {
	"cursorOuter": "circle-basic",
	"hoverEffect": "circle-move",
	"hoverItemMove": false,
	"defaultCursor": false,
	"outerWidth": 41,
	"outerHeight": 41

Step 3 – Magic Css

While editing any page with Elementor Pro, click on the hamburger icon in the top left of the window, the click on Site Settings > Custom Css and paste the following code:

					@media only screen and (min-width: 1367px) {
	body #magicMouseCursor {
	  position: fixed;
	  width: 35px;
	  height: 35px;
	  border: 1px solid #fff;
	  background: rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
	  border-radius: 50%;
	  z-index: 9999;
	  left: 0;
	  top: 0;
	  transition: transform 0.07s, width 0.3s, height 0.3s;
	  pointer-events: none; }
	  body #magicMouseCursor.cursor-square {
		border-radius: 0; }

	body #magicPointer {
	  height: 5px;
	  width: 5px;
	  top: 0;
	  left: 0;
	  position: fixed;
	  background: red;
	  border-radius: 50%;
	  pointer-events: none;
	  transition: background 0.2s, width 0.2s, height 0.2s, box-shadow 0.2s; }
	  body {
		background: #fff; }
	  body #magicPointer.pointer-blur {
		height: 50px;
		width: 50px;
		background: none;
		border: 1px solid #fff;
		box-shadow: 0px 0px 15px -5px white; }
	  body #magicPointer.pointer-overlay {
		height: 50px;
		width: 50px;
		mix-blend-mode: difference;
		box-shadow: 0px 0px 15px -5px white; }

	body .magic-hover {
	  transition: all 0.2s; }
	  body .magic-hover:hover {
		cursor: none!important; }	


Magic Classes For The Snappy Touch

In Wp > Appearance > Menus, make sure you enable the class attribute by clicking on screen options in the top right of the window, and ticking the option “Css Classes“.

Then, open the toggle of any menu item, and in the field labeled “CSS Classes (optional)“, paste the following classes:

					magic-hover magic-hover__square
