'Cursor' in this context refers to mouse cursors, such as these:
In Blender, our cursors are quite weak.
The biggest issues are:
- Many tools lack cursors
- It's not clear why cursors change (based on tool, mode, something else?)
Modes and tools
The issue is that it's not clear when cursors change based on the mode vs the tool, and many modes share the same tools.
Rather than changing the cursor based on the mode, we should do it based on the tool:
|Tools||Draw Tool||brush crosshair|
|Lasso Select Tool||Lasso|
|Fill Tool||paint bucket|
|Blur Tool||Smudge finger|
|Cursor Tool||3D Cursor crosshair|
|Tweak Tool||Tweak cursor|
