Using the smart cursor

By enabling the "smart cursor" feature you can force the mouse cursor to move automatically over the button that has the keyboard focus in a new dialog box. Smart cursor works only with "owner drawn" dialog boxes (e.g., the Tile Claimed dialog box and Scores dialog box) the windows that use standard Windows user interface are not affected.

This feature is especially useful, if you use Smart Move (by Logitech) or equivalent software, which does the same for standard windows controls. Normally these utilities do not work correctly with owner-drawn buttons. By using the internal "smart cursor" feature of Four Winds you can extend this functionality to Four Winds custom windows.

To enable or disable the smart cursor:
  1. Choose Preferences on the File menu.
  2. Choose General under the User Interface section in the category tree of the Preferences dialog box and click the Game Controls button.
  3. Click the Use smart cursor box to enable or disable automatic focusing of the mouse cursor.
