      I would like to change the current lasso icon to a crosshair or =

            Hmmm, well Alex is much cleverer than me at all this but if you choose
            Preferences at the bottom of the Edit drop down list and click on the
            Editing tab. If you put a check in the Precise cursors box and restart FWs
            does that achieve what you're after?

              Actually you can change it (albeit on a global scale). Go to Edit >
              Preferences. Click the Editing tab and choose Precise Cursors. This will
              affect all the bitmap selection tools.

                          If it was bow to change the icon in the program interface, that's how I
                          read it too. :-)

                                  Hi Everyone,

                                  Thanks for your answers. Yep, changing to precise cursors is what I wanted
                                  to do.

                                  And yes, I'll be happy to paint your living room. Just send me a photo and
                                  I'll use that handy dandy paint bucket in fireworks! :)

                                  Scott

                                      No, that was me. You do like chartreuse, right?
