lost cursor
Gimp 2.8, Windows 7

Just starting in GIMP so this may be a duh moment

After I open a create new image, the cursor disappears and the last tool I choose (rectangle...) appears and the cursor (arrow) disappears. Is this standard or is there a way to exit from the tool box and use just the arrow cursor?

Thanks, Mike

RE: lost cursor
If you just want to disable the tool icon mouse & use your system mouse, its in preferences

if you can't see a moving mouse at all(icon, etc., or its flashing try looking here:
