4.1.3-SNAPSHOT: Wrong mouse pointer symbol on topic instance and canvas

Complexity: 3 Area: GUI / Usability

Description (last modified by JuergeN) (diff)

When the mouse is moved over a topic instance it changes from arrow to "text" symbol. But one cannot mark (for copy) or edit the text. So the symbol is wrong. I think it should remain an arrow.

Then, when I press the left mouse key, I can move the topic (if on topic) or the canvas (if on canvas). Usually the symbol to move something is a hand/fist (compare e.g. openstreetmap or google).

Webclient: cursor shapes (#552).

In various situations a proper cursor shape is shown:

  • Hovering a topic does not show a text cursor (but leaves the default cursor).
  • While something is moved a grabbing hand cursor is shown. Applies to topic moves, canvas moves, and cluster moves.
  • When a topic's type icon is hovered a crosshair cursor is shown, suggesting an association can be drawn.
  • While an association is drawn a crosshair cursor is shown.


  • Some situations are only supported in conjunction with the DOM based Box Renderer plugin.
  • Some situations are not supported in Safari 5 (MacOSX 10.6.8).

See #552.
