my 'text in a bubble' no longer gives me a bubble but just acts like regular text

user icon Vlasta site administrator on December 1st

perhaps your bubble color is transparent

user icon Fox registered user on December 1st

Thanks but I have checked that. I am running 2013.1 since I am on an old XP machine. I do get the bubble 'placement frame' but can't get the text to show up. The regular text wotks fine.

Donde pongo mis cursores? :(

Para mejores resultados, ponlos en C:\Windows\Cursors\; si su administrador bloquea esa función, póngalos en C:\Users\<tu nombre de usuario>\Documents\ y crea una carpeta del conjunto de cursores específico que tengas.

¡Espero que ayude!

Yes. It works just fine on Windows 8 or 10 just like Windows 7 or 8.

Do this

  • Go to Control Panel.
  • Search up "mouse" and pull up the mouse options, or Search up "mouse" in the start menu.
  • Go to the Pointers tab.
  • Double-click on the cursor role (e.g. Normal Select, Help Select, etc.) you want to change, or click on the cursor role and click ''Browse...'.
  • Find the filepath of where your cursor is and select it. (When you download your cursor(s), they are usually somewhere in C:\Users\<your username>\Downloads.)
  • Repeat the cursor role steps until you got all cursor roles prepared.
  • Click Apply to test out your cursors.
  • If you are satisfied, click OK; otherwise, try doing another set to apply.
  • All this depends on if you want to change or equip cursors.

Hope that helps!
