FW MX - Lost the cross hairs on the pen tool - Macromedia Fireworks

I had the pen tool set so I had a + cross hair for my cursor position. Now suddenly it is back to the little pen icon. I tried changing it in prerferences but that doesn't seem to work. How does one toggle between the two? TIA...

    Default FW MX - Lost the cross hairs on the pen tool

    I had the pen tool set so I had a + cross hair for my cursor position.
    Now suddenly it is back to the little pen icon.

    I tried changing it in prerferences but that doesn't seem to work.

    How does one toggle between the two?

    TIA

    Make sure the "precise cursors" option is not checked in your preferences.

    I am not aware of a keyboard shortcut that allows you to modify this
    preference.

    Caps lock is the toggle for on/off
