Hiding Eraser Icon
Hello,

When I use a tool (Eraser, Crop, Move, etc.) in GIMP, there is a little semi-transparent icon that shows near the bottom right of the cursor representing the tool I am currently using. Is there any way to disable this? I have been doing a lot of precision erasing and this really gets in my way.

Thanks.

While that's a great fix, just a few words of caution bworga. Make sure you know what tool your working on as removing the icon makes most of the tools look the same.

Another thing you can try if what I just mentioned would be an issue for you(for me def!):

... Mouse Pointers > Pointer handedness: Left-handed or Right-handed

(this will put the icon on the right/left side of the pointer.)
If you want more center-accurate erasing/painting see "Pointer mode: Tool Icon; Tool icon with crosshair; crosshair only"
