Changing the cursor in presentation view?

Looking for help from people who understand React / Java / createCustomCursor / pointerlock pointer capture stuff.

The issue:
When observing another “multiplayer” in Figma’s Presentation View (when you click on someone and watch what they’re doing), you can’t see the cursor at all on light backgrounds on mobile devices.

Why this matters: We use Figma for observing users remotely during usability testing / research sessions. It’s critical to be able to see what their cursor / finger is doing.

Here’s more detail – Figma had me document it as a feature request: Make cursors more visible when observing in "Presentation View"

Thanks!
