Hi Kresten,

You could make a nice picture of a mouse or a kind of magnifying  
glass with a round whole in the middle of 20 pixels wide. Set the  
window shape of a palette stack to the picture and set the loc of the  
palette to the mouseLoc on mouseMove. Keep mouseMove in a frontscript  
and don't forget to include "pass mouseMove". Hide the palette and  
don't change its location whenever your application is in the  
background. On resume, set the loc of the palette to the mouseLoc  
first and then show it.

Btw did you read the feedback to Feanolog, which was sent to this  
list several months ago? I think you never replied, although I may  
also have missed a few messages.

Best regards,
