The mouse pointer shape changes whether its over the buffer, over the mode line, or header line, if that exists.

How can I change the mouse pointer shapes for these different areas to something other than their defaults?

  • I've already worked how to do this, for my purposes. I was mostly interested in setting the pointer in the header line, and I can do that by setting the pointer text property for the text in the header line. – Paul Steckler Oct 3 '16 at 19:44
