Cursors made with the daily (or 2023 newest) build of RealWorld Cursor Editor. Uses the built-in templates.

Tips when using the templates:

  • If you are making a Working in Background cursor with the Clock, Dots and Wheel templates, make your pointer in one frame, then make a new empty frame. In the new empty frame, use one of those templates, then add each frame onto the pointer frame, making sure they are aligned. Lastly, select all the frames using the bottom toolbar, and change all the hotspots in all of the frames to 0,0, or wherever you want the hotspot of the cursor to be in.
  • You can also omit moving the loading animations entirely, and just use a pointer frame to put the template on, then change the hotspot in all frames to be 0,0
  • For symbols, use the alignment feature in the template editor to position where you want the symbol to be instead of just moving it manually.
  • Alternate select cursors can be an arrow pointing up, up-right or be a vertical resize cursor template with the bottom part being replaced by the extended shaft holding the top arrow head.
  • If you are making left-handed cursors, use the up-right choice for the arrow pointer as normal select, and pointing to the right (not up) for alternate select.
  • And lastly, if you are on Windows 7, you don't have to use Location Select and Person Select since those roles haven't been made until one of the Windows 10 updates rolled out in 2020. It's recommended that you make them anyways if you are publishing your own sets as a Windows 7 user.

To equip/use these cursors:

  • Copy and paste the downloaded cursor set into a new folder in C:\Windows\Cursors. Make sure you click Continue if it requires admin privilages.
  • Go to the start menu, and search for main.cpl, then hit Enter. Regardless of what version of Windows you use, the search function works the same.
  • Go to the Pointers tab.
  • Select the role cursor, find the matching cursor in said folder, and set it.
  • Repeat for the other 16 roles.
  • Save the cursor theme by clicking Save As... and name it whatever you wish.
  • Click OK or Apply and you're done!

I like these cursors I like the fact you’ve used different variations for a some of the cursor roles.
Overall the cursors loom nice and simple which is what you were going for.
You’ve included all 17 cursor roles and all the hotspots are in the correct place.
I like the fact all the animation look nice and smooth and aren’t to flashy for people eyes on the cursors either.
Overall a good quality set with plenty of cursors.

Thanks! The point of the set IS to be as simple as it can be. I mainly used templates on all cursors except for Precision Select, Text Select, Handwriting and Unavailable. icon-image/23772-16x16x32.png image
