How do I get rid of the little white circle around the mouse pointer?

I was fitting text to a curve and a little circle appeared around the mouse pointer. I released the object and hit escape but the circle is still there.

Maybe you’re in the circle select mode ?

Everybody has a piece of the elephant. :wink:

That’s Circle Select mode. If you went into it inadvertently by pressing C you can exit out with Enter, ESC, or right-click. If you selected it as a tool (topmost icon in the left-hand toolbar), then W will cycle through the options (Box Select is the default). Or you can click and hold on that icon to pick another Select Mode.
