    It's very straightforward to paste in a new cursor in resedit, but what I wanted to do was have two cursors, which are used at different points in the movie.

    I have a series of images some thumbnails, some enlargements and some closeups, I wanted to use something similar to the photoshop magnification tool idea (black & white is fine) a + icon when the the next frame is an enlargement, a - icon when the next frame is a reduction.

    Is there a way to do this in resedit? Or could I combine two movie's and use a flash actionscript to point to the different cursor icons??

    (I dont want to hide and replace the cursor from inside flash)

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Thanks

    changing cursor

    its not too hard...

    make some invisible buttons that would be over whatever image is to be enlarged. Add a script that says

    on rollover startDrag myCursor - and hide cursor

    myCursor is a MC that contains your cursor image.
    you probably should limit the drag movie clip to the image.

    the on rollOut statement will contain the stop dragMovie, and show cursor.

    OR

    You could also add a "toolbar" - just put a button that one needs to click on, the zoom icon. and when its clicked on, the start drag starts. And you could have the zoom cursor move all over the stage.

    lookup draggable movie clips and just think of the dragable MC as a cursor!

    Thanks for the reply, I wondered if you'd mind elaborating a bit more as I'm having a few problems. (I've given up on the resedit idea)

    I've made an invisible button and tried to attach something like this to it;

    on (rollOver) {
    Mouse.hide();
