Awesome except...
Authored by: soosy on Nov 02, '01 01:27:46PM

I've found that many of the custom cursors in Photoshop cause mouse movement to get very very choppy. Going into Prefs and selecting standard cursors (rather than brush size) helped some, but the text and selection tools are still very choppy. I'm afraid it was so bad, I had to logout to stop it.

This hack is great though! It gets rid of all that ugly redraw stuff.
So if you know you are about to start a bunch of photoshop stuff, you may want to leave it off.

I've noticed this also, but found that Adobe ImageReady works just fine. No delays or jerkiness at all.

go into your plugins folder for Photoshop and disable the 'Direct Cursors' plug (inside 'Plugins>Adobe Photoshop Only>Extensions>DirectCursors>DirectCursors' as of ver.6). You can easily do this by adding a "~" in front of the enclosing folder. You will be limited in how big the brush preview circle will draw but it's definitely worth it.

If you have Conflict Catcher you could have it manage the plugins for photoshop in addition to the classic set. This way you could enable the DirectCursors when booting up in os 9 and disable it when in classic in X.
