Cursor Trouble

So you got a nice shiny new machine, an AutoDesk certified graphics card and you’ve just installed the latest version of AutoCAD. All is great, you have lots of new features to help you productivity and you are steaming along. Then you insert an image and this image has a white background. Then your world falls apart. You can no longer see your cross hairs.

You have white cross hairs on a white background.

Don’t worry this problem can be sorted by turning off 3D acceleration. For some unknown reason AutoCAD does not have dynamic cursor colour when 3D acceleration is on!

Type 3DCONFIG in the command line, click “Manual Tune” and uncheck “Enable Hardware Acceleration”. The dynamic cursor colour now works.

Once you have undertaken the task needing the dynamic cursor colour feature you will probably want turn the acceleration back on.
