For cats who have trouble looking for the Mouse "pointer"
« on: September 22, 2006, 12:14:43 AM »
Do you ever have problems looking for the text pointer in say a Microsoft Word document.

If so, you will love Vippy.

Vippy: the writer-friendly text cursor

Don't get lost in your own text. Get Vippy.Do you find it hard to locate your cursor, and mark the insertion point in your documents? You're not the only one. That's why you'll love Vippy, the mouse pointer you can't lose, because it's red. The difference is clear."

You will also love the fact that it is FREE too.

I was doing a search and replace this morning, and I found that a the text cursor moved from searched item to item, I had a hard time looking for it.

But the free Vippy was a sight saver.

I just use the "busy" animated cursor from the old Windows theme called The Golden Era. It's thicker than the standard ibeam and and has little moving red/white/blue lines...looks like a barbershop pole.  :D
