10.4: Larger mouse pointer downside
Authored by: ozmachead on Jun 01, '05 08:24:06AM

Upsizing the mouse pointer was one of my first Tiger tweaks (essential on a 30" monitor!); however, it has a downside, too. When in text-cursor mode (in any app from TextEdit to InDesign, e.g.) the larger cursor makes for difficult text selection accuracy; I often find myself half a line out of kilter, with the result of selecting the wrong piece of text. It took me quite some getting used to, and occasionally I still manage to muff it.
