Cursor doesn't show active tool
Regardless of what tool is selected, the cursor shows the selector tool until you actually click on something. Then it returns to the selector tool cursor as soon as you stop clicking.
This means that, when you're working quickly, you often don't know what tool is active, resulting in many mis-clicks. Users have to constantly scan the toolbar or do "trial clicks" to find out what tool is active.
The cursor should always show the active tool.
Thanks for sharing your feedback! I wonder if what you’re seeing is expected.
I gave it a go on my Mac system w/XD 13 and here’s what I see. When I place cursor over pasteboard or artboard area, and select different tools using keyboard shortcut, it changes to reflect the active tool. If I use mouse, on mouse-down in tools bar, the cursor remains an arrow but changes to the actively selected tool when hovering over pasteboard or artboard.
If you’re seeing something different, post further.
Can you give this a try and let me know if you see the same?
