Will this code work to move the cursor every 30 seconds infinite? If not is it possible to amend this code to move the cursor every 30 seconds with an infinite loop?
Private dtmNext As Date
' Move cursor every 30 seconds
Sub Move_Cursor()
    Dim Hold As POINTAPI
    GetCursorPos Hold
    SetCursorPos Hold.X_Pos + 30, Hold.Y_Pos
     Application.Wait DateAdd("s", 1, Now)
    SetCursorPos Hold.X_Pos, Hold.Y_Pos
    dtmNext = DateAdd("s", 30, Now)
    Application.OnTime dtmNext, "Move_Cursor"
End Sub

' Stop moving cursor
Sub Stop_Cursor()
    Application.OnTime dtmNext, "Move_Cursor", , False
End Sub

There was a similar question asked a few years ago that used a loop that you could adapt for your needs.   https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28342365/Word-2010-VBA-Move-the-cursor-one-character-to-the-right-every-2-seconds.html

Yes I have seen that, but I was looking to move the cursor in a loop.
