    I just did this last week--I ended up drawing my own 1-bit pointing
    finger cursor.

    If somebody doesn't have a better solution, I'd be happy to send it to you.

    Thanks Andrew I'll try that.

    Is there a list somewhere of the each cursor and the number associated with
    them?

    Hi,

    Check out the TechNote below for a chart of available cursors that you can
    use for Mac and Windows:

    "Setting the cursor"

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks! Why is this in a Tech Note, and not in the product
    doentation? It would have saved me an afternoon.
