Crosshair appearance

Hi guys, is there a way to edit how the crosshair looks in blender when in edit mode? I knwo its a strange question but can I get the edit mode crosshair to look like the sculting crosshair?

I think it Is using the windows win 10 crosshair system

so change it in win 10 and it will be use in blender

Mmm, that hasn’t done the trick unfortunately. I downloaded a .cur and replaced my mouse precision pointer in the cursor settings win10 but still get the same crosshairs in blender.

as I remember win 10 has a lot of cur included

vaguely remember
there is like a name for this not certain it was cursor
might be pointer or something like that !

I change the old crosshair for an arrow

so you should be able to change it too

Hi thanks for the feedback. I already have custom cursors ( osx set ). I did use the website you shared earlier today to get a precision cursor and changed it but it doesn’t change in blender unfortunately.

the cursor shape are already available in the Win 10
are you using another OS ?

I think you need to also reboot

I did it so it should work for your PC too !

Thanks for you advice. I did however use that website to get to where i got to in the attached image. No go unfortunately. The cursor in blender doesnt change :frowning:

one strange thing is that I cannot make a screen print with the cursor
when I import it into paint soft the cursor is not shown !

how did you show it ?

thanks

haha, yeah, I had to take a photo with my phone.

good one LOL

happy bl

just one note

may be on win 10 this has to be done while you are registered as the master owner on console !

happy bl

Dont really know what you mean dude. Do you mean admin?

yes as administrator on Win OS
could be that Admin thing to make the change apply

I don’t remember exactly what I did a few years back! LOL

but it did work for me so you should be able to make it too

happy bl

just saw something else
on blender artist forum
on the bottom part I get my pointer as an arrow
but when I go over the top images part I get a hand pointer

strange that it changes like that !

in blender I get the arrow pointer !

happy bl

I am admin but its ok. Think im just gonna have to leave it. Ive only been a windows user for a year. Still learning new things. Most of all how much I miss os x hahaha. Thanks for all the effort in replying :slight_smile:
