    The cursor is to hard to see and I find it hard to know where I m drawing. Is it possible to change cursor type size or colour?

    Wayne,
    I can confirm that experience.
    Initially I had a hard time finding the cursor and thought it wasn’t operating.
    Discovered it was.
    After that on occasion I’d lose the cursor for awhile.

    Enjoying the program thus far.
    Nice alpha release and very helpful intro videos!

    Yeah, I was going to say the same. It toggles between two kinds of cursors. Did that help at all?

    The crosshair cursor is transparent on purpose, because some people doesn’t like the cursor to be too obvious/distracting when drawing. But maybe we took it too far? Let me know if you think it should be less transparent.

    The dot cursor is just about ok while you’re actually drawing but I struggle to find it after moving off the drawing area to hit an icon or dropdown menu. I’m having to do a random scribble just to find the cursor.
    Maybe toggle the transparency on the crosshair?

    I think the minimal cursor dot is very nice!

    Hi !.. speaking about the cursor when drawing, the shape and the size of the cursor change upon wich tool you’re using :
    when you choose the ” Pencil “, I find that the cursor is too small, not pleasant at all… but when using Marker and Brush, it’s perfect for my taste !.. If we had the same cursor when drawing with the Pencil… there would be no problem any more … that are my thoughts … I hope it helps !.. 😊

    Thanks Eric. But it changes according to the size of the drawing-tool (or erasing-tool) you are using. The circle marks the maximum size and the inner part of the crosshair lines marks the minimum. If you use a mouse, that hasn’t got any pressure sensitivity, I understand why the cursor size feels weird.

    If you don’t want the cursor that shows the size, you can toggle to the other type of curser, that remains a dot all the time. Shortcut , (comma).

    I agree, I would just like if the cursor contrasted more with the white background, because the light grey is hard for me to see on either setting. Thank you!

    +1 on feeling the cursor is hard to find at times.
