Hi,

I was wondering if there is a way to get Pagestream to use bigger cursors/Pointers?

On a 1920 screen they are very small.

I have looked in the Softlogic folder within Pagestream, and it looks like the pointers ar .gif files.

Can these be made larger in anyway?

If not, can they be edited/enlarged in any of the graphic programs?

Thanks for any help

@Swoop

I think it is not possible until someone makes a tool that captures intuition/setpointer and change the call at runtime.

This is clearly an OS core task and there was small monitors with lower resolutions at the time when it was last touched.

What is the version of PGS where you found the pointer images in gif files?
4.1.5.6 seems not have such files, other PGS versions are useless.

PageStream 2.2 Coverdisk version was sufficient for use during secondary school and I'm happy with version 3 now. The developers left PageStream 5 with bugs but PGS 3 is indeed still useful.

There is a quote from Andy Finkel on the Official AmigaDOS 2 Companion book cover:
"Once you use 2.0, you won't want to go back!"

This is valid for PGS too with V4.1.
