Thank you for this reminder, Jacque.  Certainly, for my class, that is a
viable option.

But I really don't think it's a viable option for some newcomer who d/l
the trial edition, takes a look at the two cursors, and is thoroughly
frustrated by which one to use and when.

I just think the two cursors are too confusing because they look so much
alike and do very different things.
