No, but why. It's better to wait a little?

I agree... but I would vote for 1 second instead of 2, currently.

I guess Dante would like instant pointer hiding. Me too, sometimes it stays on display for quite a few seconds.

If you use Xnview only with keyboard then is not so usefull to see mouse cursor on full screen mode, i would like a full screen mode without mouse cursor and that mouse cursor only appears when mouse is used.
Thank you very much.

But 1 or 2 seconds is not really a long delay :-)

What's the purpose of leaving cursor on full screen (especially for that long) if mouse is not used?

[suggestion] any keypress should hide cursor [/suggestion]

The idea is that if user uses keyboard, he will not rely mainly on mouse -> hide mouse immediately (of course: moving mouse will show it again)
No need to put an option for that... :D

Agreed. No need for an option.
Just hide cursor immediately on display and then after 2 seconds of inactivity.
