As the delphi icon editor doesnt allow you to place the
hotspot, does anyone know of an editor that does allow
you to place the hotspot in the correct place, or a version
of the icon editor which actually works. Cheers, Doylee «;¬)

There is no hotspot in an icon.
Hotspots are only applicable on cursors.
If you want to make multicolored cursors, you can
use MSDEV or some other cursor editor like:
Aniedit - ftp://ftp.netcon.net.au/pub/win32/animcurs/aniedit.zip

Hello!!!
Isn't that what I just answered?
The Delphi Imageeditor has the capabilities to set hotspots
in cursors.

Youre suggested cursor editor isnt compatible with delphis image editor, which makes it useless for my purposes.  The delphi image editor has a bug in it - setting the hotspot in the icon editor doesnt actually do anything, as you find out when you subsequently deploy the cursor into action.  I need something compatible with delphis image editor (i.e. read/write .res files), which actually does set hotspots).

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Have you tested the resource editor in MSDEV VC++ 1.52+?
They work!

No, I don't own it. Surely there is a resource editor out there somewhere that dosn't require that I purchase a whole programming language. Maybe the bug is fixed in Delphi 3? does anybody know?

The Resource workshop on the RAD pack from Borland.  It works with both 16 and 32 platforms as well.

C++ Builder comes with the ImageEditor bug fixed.  Image editor had way too may bugs to truly be called a Borland product.  I can check the legality of this, but if you want the fixed ImageEditor from C++ Builder and it is alright with Borland, I can append it to an E-Mail
