Cursor collapses

When using the display in vertical (portrait) position, the cursor collapses in the edit area (not the menue area) to a black square (about 50x50px).

Maybe updated video card drivers are in order. This certainly isn't a bug in Paint.NET.

Thanks for answer.

Card driver update (Catalyst 12.1 from 1/25/2012) is done. - E.g. PS7, PSE9, Corel Paint3, Inkscape, Artrage and other non-graphic progs DON´T show this phenomenon. Its only Paint.net. See video (cursor.wmv, 4.2 MB)

I found the solution in internet:

Go to Control Panel

Find "Mouse Properties"

Go to "Pointer Options"

Put a check mark in the "Display Pointer trails"

Slide the bar over to "short"

Apply the changes and then restart paint.net

see: http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/microsoft-windows-7-forum/27626-scramble-cursor-portrait-mode-solution-2.html

Cursor is now normal (a small cross).

Now that is curious. I tried rotating my monitor to simulate this issue and couldn't reproduce it. I'll have to try it again with some trails on to see what happens then.

Thanks for being kind and reporting back what caused that to occur. Much appreciated.
