Have you ever been painting fine details or making selections and your cursor is in the way, blocking whatever you’re trying to select, or at least you wish it was more accurate where you’re working? If you use the Precise Cursor, you’ll get a pixel-perfect crosshair. Turning it on in the Preferences isn’t an option, because, let’s face it, you don’t want that cursor all the time. If you tap Caps Lock on your keyboard, your brush and selection tools will turn into the Precise Cursor. Tap Caps Lock off to revert to the regular cursor.
