    ive got an annoying problem with my mouse cursor that only happens in the hammer editor. when i hover over blocks (for example to change the size of a new block) my cursor doesnt change its shape. most of the time it only works properly in one of the four grids (ususally in the front y/z grid). in the other grids the cursor stays as the normal "pointy" cursor instead of becoming the cursor e.g. with the double arrows, indicating that i can click and move to adjust the shape of the selected block. that way i often misclick and have to recreate the block. i use a logitech G500 and just updated the firmware which didnt do anything.
    if anyone knows a fix or has any idea what i could do about this, please let me know :)

    As far as I know, there isn't a fix.

    The type of mouse you have doesn't really matter, I think, since the cursor icons and such is done software side. You can still do all the adjustments that you normally shuold do, even if the proper cursor icon shows up.

    It has been around for a while, it's pretty much a feature now.

    saving and restarting hammer usually fixes this oddity. this often is the nature of proprietary software.

    that fixes it for the duration of 2 clicks for me. after 2 clicks anywhere on the grids it doesnt work anymore
