Adjusting the Image Cursor
To interactively adjust the size and position of the Image Cursor,
Make sure the target Image Window has focus.
Select Cursor Mode using on the Image Toolbar or right click on the image to open the Image Context Menu
To position the Image Cursor, move the Mouse Cursor (mouse pointer) to the point of interest and then press the left button (Mouse Down).
To drag the Image Cursor around the image, do mouse down and then move the mouse. The Image Cursor and Mouse Cursor remain locked together on center as long as the mouse button is down. Mouse up at the final position.
To resize the cursor, let the mouse pointer hover over an edge or corner, then mouse down and drag the cursor to the desired size.
Using the mouse to move the image cursor can be difficult for precise positioning or for small moves of a few pixels or less. Mira has 2 alternative methods for "exact" positioning of the Image Cursor:
Use the keyboard arrow keys such as [>]. Note: To use the arrow keys, the Image Window must have the keyboard focus so that it receives the keystrokes.
The Go To Coordinate command positions the image cursor at an exact pixel or world coordinate position. Use Ctrl+G to get to this command quickly, and dock its dialog along the screen edge for repeated use. This dialog works with the Image Window that has the focus.
When you have finished changing the cursor properties such as shape, size, and colors, you can save the new properties as default values using the Save command in the Image Context Menu > Cursor menu.
