Hi

I wonder if it's possible to change mouse pointer to "hand" during drawing certain gestures?

Thanks

You mean while still drawing the gesture itself?

You could leverage the Mouse Events > (Stroke Button) Click and Release scripts to do this.

Would you mind providing a little more context/details about what you're trying to accomplish?

I've set up gestures to switch between virtual desktops. I'd like to make them look like I swipe current desktop left or right. So the mouse pointer would appear as "hand" while drawing the gestures.

So for specific gestures, that's not really going to work. This is because until you're finished drawing the gesture, S+ doesn't truly know what you're going to draw.

You could have it be a hand any time you start to draw any gesture, but conditionally it's not really feasible.

I know the hint popup shows the currently matched gesture while drawing, but that's not available anywhere to scripts. You could get really complicated and hook the mouse to track the mouse movements and determine if it looks like it will be the desktop swipe gestures - but honestly, that would be a lot of overhead for something cosmetic.
