Mouse Pointer Inconsistency

Post by TheEvilHammer »

I've noticed that if you right click on a folder in the folder tree in "browser" mode, the mouse pointer doesn't change to the normal "arrow" - it stays as the "pointing finger". This is bit odd - try right-clicking on a web link in a browser to see how it should look...

:) Hello !
- Right, the hand-index cursor stays…

- Not a big deal, though; just a small trivial bug / lacuna :P

:mrgreen: Kind regards,

Correct, well spotted, EvilHammer. I've just tried to see how MS Explorer behaves and found that in folder tree the mouse cursor never changes (always "arrow". Not quite sure but perhaps this part should be changed.

O.k., but at least it should be reset as requested by EvilHammer.

But i don't change it, and it's the normal behaviour, i've checked

I think maybe you should get rid of the "pointing finger" cursor altogether. The only applications that should use this cursor are web browsers anyway.
