can someone help me modify the code of Metapad?
I'd like to ask you a huge favour. I know very little about C programming and I'd like to modify a program's source code.
I use a Notepad replacement, the superb Metapad. The author has released the source code, but I just can't work it out.
I want to make one small change - I'd like to change the cursor.
Let me explain. I have Vista on my laptop (not by choice) and I've changed the Windows cursor in Ease Of Access Center so that it's wider and easier to see. Now it's just like on a C64, and it's excellent. It's like that in every program I use.
However, Metapad seems to use it's own cursor as it hasn't changed, it's still the same thin vertical line. What's more, I've changed Metapad's background to a light grey colour so that it's easier on the eyes and this makes the cursor even harder to see.
So all I want is the custom cursor to be taken out of Metapad and let it use the system cursor. Do you guys think you could help me with this? I'd be so grateful for this.

If anybody wants to give it a shot, please let me know. Thanks in advance.
