STEP 2 - The Menu Buttons
Now we need to create the buttons which change the cursor. Draw how you want your button to look and convert it to a button instance by pressing the "F8" key on your keyboard. Copy the button (CTRL+C) and Paste it (CTRL+V) as many times as you want buttons. For example: I want 4 buttons for 4 cursors, so i pasted it 4 times). Put the buttons where you want on the stage and label them with what you want each button to change your cursor to.
STEP 3 - The Cursor Movie Clip
Now you've done the buttons, we need the cursor movie clip itself. Create a new movie clip and call it whatever you want, I called mine "Cursor MC". Give it an instance name of "cursor". Go into the movie clip and create as many frames as you have cursors (I have 4 cursors so i created 4 frames). On each frame, put one of your cursor graphics (make sure they are all in the same place on each frame). Write stop(); in each of the frames actions. Now create one more blank frame and give it the action stop(); and give it the frame label "default". (Make sure the blank frame is the first frame of the movie clip). Now go back into the main movie.
