I have a custom cursor PNG that a fellow Painter Factory member sent me way back in 2011. I've only upgraded to a new painter now and would like to use this modified smaller dot.I can't recall where I can find and replace the existing single pixel cursor.Any chance anyone here knows?Best,Matt
Click Edit, then Preferences, Interface, and the cursor types are listed including single pixel.
Many thanks Ron--I appreciate the answer.I am trying to replace the default single pixel cursor with a custom made one. I have the custom png but cannot remember how I access the cursor file so i can name the custom the exact same name as the original and so swap it out.
i believe it required access to some kind of library folder where the cursor files were stored, but for the life of me I cannot remember how to repeat the process from back in 2011, if it is even still possible with Painter 2020.
Yes, to my knowledge this can be done in Painter 2020...although I should say that making any modifications to these kinds of files so proceed with caution (not recommended for the faint of heart!)
Ok navigate to this folder: C:\Program Files\Corel\Painter 2020\Resources\20.0\Framework\Cursors
Locate the cursor you plan to replace...for example I planned to replace the 'arrow' brush cursor, so I did the following:
1. Renamed 228.PNG to 228.BAK
2. Create a new cursor called 228.png (using your new smaller dot)
3. Copied it into this folder.
Lastly, I setup Painter to use the cursor:
Go to Preferences > Brush Cursor
And under "Shape" I choose "Triangle"
And voila, you should have the new cursor.
Again, this is only recommended for people comfortable doing mods...use at your own risk.
Yes! Thank you Stephen! This is exactly what I was looking for--much appreciated!
