Photoshop cursor size - time for a redesign

Cursor size in PS is becoming minute, especially as monitor resolutions increase. I suggest it is time for a re-think and a re-design of cursor size control. Here are several problems I hope that would solve.

1. In WINDOWS, cursor sizes outside of the image areas in PS can be increased by adjusting mouse pointer size in CONTROL PANEL, but as soon as the cursor enters the image area in PS, PS takes over with the minute cursor again and the systems' large cursor size is suppressed, making the cursor difficult to see and consuming more time to achieve any results. e.g. Selections.

2. The Spot Healing Brush problems with cursor line thickness have been well documented on the web, particularly when trying to use it in areas of midtones, where it often disappears because the lines are very thin and of a midtone brightness themselves.

3. In PS PREFERENCES, there is presently no control of cursor size that is at all useful to minimize these problems. Perhaps more cursor control should be built into PREFERENCES.
