Cursor role designation alternatives.

user icon AJaxx registered user on August 26th 2016

I'll remember to fix the names and add select to the role designations. The 4 you have marked are the 4 that I need to remember. Thanks for pointers!

user icon cdl contributing user on August 29th 2016

Alt stands for alternative.
You can use either name in those cases.
Your cursor set is fine.

The way I was naming them used to be the old windows designation. The way they should be is the way you have them listed which, i might add, corresponds with RWCE when uploading. I did put the 1 & 2, respectively, to the diagonal resize.

Thanks again!
