Unknown cursor symbol

I edited a material in the user library and then must have clicked on something or another in the toolbars. I now have a weird icon thing that follows my cursor around and I can't figure out what the heck it is telling me. Hopefully this is just something I need to toggle back off, but again I don't know what it is. I have attached image.

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

"cursor icons"

 

Old computer guy here from when we had terminals with a cursor blinking at you and no mice.

 

That's what I thought too and I've suggested that that term be added to Help so it would be found.

 

And welcome to the forum!

Hello,

 

My cursor has a strange icon no matter what job I'm in or how many times I restart the program, (see attached image). I'm not sure how it got there or how to remove it. I tried adding a signature to the bottom of my messages, but I don't see it as I type so just in case it doesn't show up, I am using HD Pro 2020 Build: 21.3.1.1x64. Thanks in advance!

Thank you! I had tried that originally but didn't go down far enough to catch the "mouse pointer icons" and Angle snaps! Thank you! 
 

Open Help, search Pointer Icons.
