For some tools, my cursor shape is a cross-hair symbol. How do I change this back to normal?

If your cursor shape has changed to a cross-hair symbol, it means that Precise Cursors have been enabled. Some users prefer this setting when they’re working in very fine detail.

With Precise Cursors, there is a cross-hair on your cursor when using the Selection tools, Background Eraser, Paint Brush, etc.


To turn this off, go to File > Preferences > General Program Preferences > Display and Caching, and uncheck Use Precise Cursors. Click OK and your cursors will be back to normal.
