    Default Editing menu cursor in Encore

    Hi All

    Was just wondering if there is a way to edit the icon that is used as the cursor in my DVD menus. At the moment I have modified the 'Radiant Menu.psd' which is supplied with Encore - although I cant see how to change to arrow icon which is used as the cursor when selecting chapters.

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers

    What you need to understand with Encopre menus is that are simply Photoshop files arranged carefully in layer groups.

    This means the by far the easiest way of editing your menu is to open the thing in Photoshop itself. This is what I do. You can then find the layer group associated with a particular button, open the group tpo reveal the individual layers themselves. The one that represents the 'highlight' you want will be evident. All you need to do is edit/change/replave that layer and your job is done.

    I have to confess to never having tried to edit a menu in photoshop rather than adding buttons ready for fine tuning in Photoshop but it does have a layers pallette where you shoul dbe able to find and identify the highlight layer you want. Once selected then I expect you to be able to 'edit' it using whatever edit features encore actually offers.

    Yeah, I understand the concept of the layers for the menu, although I had real difficulty in getting the cursor to show in the layers. Have drilled down a lot into the layer for the chapter button and eventually found it.
