Author Topic: Vista, precision cursor is black so no use on dark map background  (Read 2729 times)

I've been playing with the software on my Vista laptop (waiting for my RB to be delivered), and can't see the cursor on a dark map.

Would it not be sensible to make the cursor a reversed colour over the map? I can't find a way to fix this within the Airnav software.

Brian,

If I remember, this is a Vista "theme" setting rather than a RB problem.  Tarbat knows how to fix this.

Edit: Maybe it wasn't tarbat - I've just found this old post by Spotter70:

Hello
I have found out the problem
i had to adjust the cursor section in the mouse properties under "Precision select"
Seems to have done the trick Phew!!
Regards to all

Yes, I suppose what I want is a .cur file editor so I can create my own cursor.

Problem is, since this is a system wide choice, if the cursor I create has a similar problem in another application, I then have a problem there instead.

A better solution would be for RB to use it's own cursor that could be varied depending on the map colour in use.
