    • Change the style of your pointer by clicking the drop down next to pointer and selecting an arrow, cursor, hand, or color.
Tip: Make the pointer trail stay on screen by left-clicking and dragging your mouse as you draw. The trail you make with your mouse will disappear when you let go of the mouse button.
