I have tried opening an icon from the library.
Next I tried to make it larger in PAINT, and saved it as a .ico file under a new name.
It appears in the ICONS selection options but the size is still the same when used in MindManager.

Maybe it is possible to find ico files that are bigger?
If not it is a design decision of MIndjet

As far as I know, marker sizes are fixed and are not influenced by the dimensions of the icons used.

Visually impaired people would like that all programs respect what is stored as default marker in setup, defined through Windows Control panels Mouse pointer Scheme selection.

Seems like Mindjet has defined own mouse pointer fixed setup and ignores what user has selected though :-(

Worse is it if I while editing in a note topic move to another program and then return back, mouse pointer/editing mark is lost and not visible anytime more, and you may loose context about where was editing/writing before you moved to do eg. literature references and alike.

This I would consider a bug.

Hi Alf

I think you should make your point about the mouse pointer in a separate thread.

You can reduce font size in a topic to relatively increase the marker size but its only from 12pt down to 8pt for default main topic font.
