Hi again folks!

Im triying to create a mouse pointer different than the typical one.
Is possible to put a jpg or gif graphic as a mouse pointer?

Thanks to all.

You can apply the 'drag' action to an image at the start of the movie, and it should become somewhat of a mouse pointer - some work may be required perfecting the technique - but the fundamentals are all in place.

Thanks Rob!

This won't get rid of the normal mouse pointer but it will force an object to follow it. You can view an example here:

The .movie file is also there for download, so you can see exactly how it was done.

You can easily hide the mouse pointer using the "hide" action and choosing "mouse" from the bottom of the list.

Thanks for the tip, I'll keep that in mind.
