This is a pretty superficial post purely for aesthetics, but I'd been given a compliment once for a screenshot I shared on Twitter. Not of the actual content of the screenshot, mind you, but of my pointer in Workbench!
The default pointer is fine, of course, but I wanted something with a bit of depth. Using the Workbench's "Pointer" utility in the Prefs drawer it's not very hard to do. Honestly, it's really pretty awesome that the engineers allowed this kind of editing of the OS in the first place. So why not?
Attached are close-ups of the pixels involved in case you want to try something similar (or make your own!). If you have a custom pointer you're proud of, I'd love to see it of course!
Note: If you decide to try this out, do remember to "Set Point" at the end. This allows you to set where the point's tip actually clicks on things. With this new design, I put mine on the very tippy top pixel - which is actually red, but the Set Point over-writes it on-screen with a small orange square. Where that orange square is there really is a red pixel behind it.
