Is there a way to set my preference for a Big Cursor. I have an employee that likes the little cursor. I always have to change to big if he has been in the drawing. I'm about ready to make him always change it back but was hoping there was a way to set it for my pc. I did spend time looking on the boards but after 30 min. I stopped.

Thank you all. That will help.
Would still like to have it changed as a setting at the ini level. Like being able to add the backwards area to do a select all without using crossing.
Is that available?

Code: Select all[General]
Automatic Crossing Selection=FALSE
; If TRUE, area selection from right to left will imply crossing.
With the latest v18 update, this is now found in the Program Prefs, on the new Drawing tab.
