Thank you very much for trying to help me - i kind of feel like SD has abandoned both me and CursorXP which is a shame, i've used CursorXP for over a couple decades if i recall, back when i once lived within a mile or two or them. Sorry that's no longer the case as i could have just personally visited them and asked for help.
I don't know if i did anything wrong - i opened the editor by clicking "Create Cursor" at the bottom of the Cursor Themes selection window.
Then i opened the Turkey.CurXPTheme by highlighting that theme in the Cursor themes window and to the right of the examples just under "Current theme: Turkey" clicking the second option from the left, (adjacent to the theme preview magnifying glass icon) which appears to be in yellow with possibly a pencil in the icon.
At this point i have two CursorFX Theme Editor windows open, the one with the blank space holders for each function (a circle with a diagonal line through it and the "+" to the upper left) labeled "CursorFX2" at the top, and another CursorXP Theme Editor window with Turkey.CurXPTheme loaded.
I made sure that "Normal cursor states" was selected in both windows, then clicked on "Standard select" in the "Turkey" editor, pressed Ctrl+C, then clicked on the "Standard select" icon in the "CursorFX2" window and pressed "Ctrl+V".
I also tried the same procedure but instead of using the keyboard shortcuts for copy & paste, i used the theme editor menu selections for copy and paste - still nothing.
What am i doing wrong???
Thank you VERY MUCH for trying to help me!!!
