How do you go about changing cursor type from say arrow to crosshair, thanks
Welcome to the forum. I don't think you can in SolidWorks.
That's a thing you do with your OS. Not SW related
Right click on your desktop > personalise > change mouse pointers
It would apply to your general PC setup though, not to SW specifically.
The ability to use a crosshair was included in the 2D Emulator add-in which was eliminated when 64 bit versions were introduced.
