Setting a Cursor's Hot Spot 

The hot spot of a cursor is the point to which Windows refers in tracking the cursor's position. By default, the hot spot is set to the upper-left corner of the cursor (coordinates 0,0). The Hotspot property in the Properties window shows the hot spot coordinates.

To set a cursor's hot spot

  1. On the Image Editor toolbar, click the Set Hotspot tool.

  2. Click the pixel you want to designate as the cursor's hot spot.

    The Hotspot property in the Properties window displays the new coordinates.

    NoteTip

    Tool tips appear when you hover your cursor over a toolbar button. These tips can help you identify the function of each button.
