The hotspot of the cursor is on the tip of the internal, black part.
When I enlarge the cursor, the white outline is enlarged as well, so the tip of the white outline and the inner tip of the black body get pretty far from one another. I keep clicking on the white tip (as it's the outermost tip, the "absolute" tip of the arrow).
I know it has always been like that on Macs, I know many of you love it that way. To me it's counter-intuitive (please don't debate this, it's my personal preference and I have found on a few forums that I'm not alone in this, so the answer could be useful to a number of people).
Is there a way to change the cursor hotspot? For example by editing the cursor file and replacing the original one? Where is the cursor file in OS X 10.8.5? Is there any (file as such), or is the cursor some OS method or whatever?
Or, as an alternative, to just download a different cursor (with the hotspot on the outermost tip) and replace the original system one?
