Cursor Effects - enhancements that would be great to have.

Product: Camtasia
What I would like: 1) More distinct cursor effects allowing me to distinguish between mouse button down and up. 2) Middle mouse button cursor effects.

I create content for software products. The products allow the customer to click-drag an object (mouse down, move cursor) to a new location, then "drop" (mouse up) the object. A majority of the customers use a 3-button mouse, the third button being a wheel.

  1. Camtasia has cursor effects for mouse button left and right click. However, I don't see a means to distinguish between mouse button actions - down/up. Therefore, I am submitting that this would be a good thing to add. 

  2. 3-button mouse where the 3rd button is a wheel used for Zoom, Pan, rotate, customizations, etc. It would be very helpful to have cursor effects for the middle button/wheel.

Thank you.
