On starting CursorNode, the Settings Panel is presented. This is the user interface for the program where various configuration options are available. The options are grouped into tabs to make these easier to use.

Cursor tab

The cursor-tab is the default tab that CursorNode starts with. It shows the currently active cursor customization. As soon as CursorNode is started, the active cursor customization is put into effect. The customization affects all cursors shown on the screen, giving them the same appearance as the design displayed in the panel. The standard window resize cursors are not changed. When CursorNode shuts down, the customization is removed, returning cursors on screen to their original appearance.
