Hi everybody,
My question is that how can i capture the image of the point-to-link cursor(the one with one finger raise up) in a brower(IE4 or Netscape communicator)?
I have try the Print Screen button and ScreenPrint Gold 2.0, they can only give me the screen image, not that of the mouse cursor.  Any suggestion is appreciated.

Sorry for that. My system is 98 and I take things for granted. If it's the image itself you're after, you can find it in the 5kb gif at http://www.turvaja.ee/roke/images/cursors.gif.

Alternatively I can try find software that can grab cursors. For that matter, PCX-DUMP should be the ideal tool for the purpose. OK?

Are your end users making ugly email signatures?

Have you left it up to your end users to create their own email signatures? Are they forgetting to add the company logo or using garish font colors? Take control and ensure all users have the same email signature.

I don't think I got the points as I was adding a comment this time, not an answer. I took the image with Printscreen on my Windows 98 system. Interestingly a .cur file with the hand image does not exist...

I've used PCX-Dump previously for making all kinds of "impossible" screen shots, but despite its capabilities it's one hell to use (tweaking the sessions ofr it, occasionally stuff only works with automated single shots, e.g. set at 20 seconds from launching, etc.). I've mainly used it for grabbing DOS screens.

Why the point-to-link image cursor does not exist in the .cur file? It is generated by the brower?
Did u successfully capture the mouse pointer image using PCX-Dump?
