I've searched here, looked in the app store for add-ons etc., and googled for answers but found no solution -- Is there any way to stop/disable the stupid 'finger pointer' when the pointer hovers over a link? If you increase the size of the pointer by any significant amount (desirable for older eyes on a high-res screen) the corresponding larger finger pointer size makes it difficult to see what's underneath it -- a problem when selecting check boxes for example. Does Apple think their users are so daft they wouldn't know a hotlink without it? (I much prefer the Windows option of having the hotlink underline when hovered over.) More generally, are there any tools/add-ons that provide more pointer options? It seems Apple's position is you can have a black pointer and you'll like it. Period.
