How do I change the point of interaction on a custom cursor?

Recommended Posts

Hey all! I made a new cursor (image attached) and I'm quite happy with how it looks. The problem is the point of interactivity is in the pinky; I'd like it to be at the tip of the pencil. I'm just wondering how to shift or select the part of the cursor that interacts with the website.

ALSO not to ask for too much, but I was considering having the cursor change ever so slightly upon hovering over a site link (ie. hand tilts slightly counter clockwise and the pinky tucks in to mimic a hand ready to write) and I'm wondering if this will change the answer to my first question.  Thanks!

Yes! There is probably a more technical or more descriptive way for me to explain my issue, but it really comes down to shifting "pointer position" to the tip of the pencil.

Just like in a standard mouse pointer, the only part of the cursor that can interact with a website is the very tip of the pointer. Does that clear things up?

Apologies. This is the last time this will be happening. I've been in the middle of transferring an  old domain to squarespace. Here's the new domain:

Hey just thought I'd check in again here. Just to refresh your memory, I'm just looking to change the interactive part of the cursor from the upper most part to the very bottom.
