  • Setting up the event to rotate favorite cursors.

    To be able to properly use the cursor rotation feature you need to setup a trigger event when to change your cursor. Proceed to manage page as described in the previous section and find a second toggle that lets you select the type of event and input of value. There can be only two types of events: activating the cursor from favorites list by time, every amount seconds you enter; activating the cursor from favorites list by a number of pages that you visited, in the input you need to specify the number of pages that should be viewed for a cursor to be changed. Be sure to properly select time/page toggle and specify the number of seconds or pages for rotation to take place.

    Please make sure that you did not set a very short interval in seconds so that browser would have time to set and properly display your cursor.
