FEATURE REQUEST: Add cursor selection for all hotspots

As a designer creating prototypes for engineers, I want the ability to choose the appropriate cursor (e.g., cursor: default, cursor: pointer, etc.) when I'm setting up a hotspot, so that I can more easily share the desired experience with my engineering partners.

Hi Adam!

Thanks for getting in touch! The cursor that appears will depend on the type of Project you're working with. For example, if you're working on a web Prototype, you'll notice the pointer. If you're working with a mobile Prototype, you'll notice the circle/finger cursor, and will also have mobile gestures to choose from.

If you're looking for different functionality, would you mind sharing a little more information on your end goal? I'd be happy to pass along any feedback you may have!

Michael: I believe Adam is referring to the use case of a web or installed desktop application (not a mobile app) where you want the mouse cursor to change based upon what element is being interacted with, or which tool is being selected. It really depends on what application is being mocked up / prototyped. For example the cursor may change to a text-input cursor when over a text field. Or a crosshair after selecting a particular tool. 

Adam did I get that right?

@SLT - exactly!

@Michael, the request is for the ability to select/assign a cursor to a hotspot. Cursor control is only relevant on Web or Desktop prototypes.
