Let us keep custom cursors after April

“For one week starting this April Fun Day” but why only for a limited time? In almost the same breath the article states:
“There’s no visual metaphor for personal expression quite like a cursor blinking in a brave new document, or zooming around a shared canvas. In Figma and FigJam, cursors signify multiplayer collaboration. These avatars don’t just design and build, but also chat, emote, and high five. They’re how we see and relate to each other thanks to—not in spite of—our screens.”

I’d like to see customer cursors stay past this April fun week.

Agreeeeeeeee! Please keep this function. It make my miserable life less miserable. My dead body would feel warmer if I know I can use the funny cat cursor for the rest of my life. Also what’s the point of spend so much time design and develop a fun function and take it away from customers?

Fun function, yes. I would’ve preferred a different one - the ability to redirect file URLs. Re-organizing a growing team and set of files is painful :frowning:

Please no. Let’s not pollute a professional design tool with entertainment nonsense

It could even just be something that’s local to the user and not seen by other people in files if they wanted to maintain cleanliness

Let’s not ignore that you can always turn the feature off if you don’t like it :slightly_smiling_face:

How about let’s give people some options. You can turn this function off if you hate it.

They’re cool but it’s quite problematic to be side by side with the avatars on top right. Now I keep looking at that thinking that there’s someone in the file. Maybe changing the position? Everyone learned the feature already.

Don’t be a sourpuss, you can’t see other custom cursors unless you turn it on.

I agree with Slava here, what nonsense this feature is. And we don’t even have a fully functional “multiple strokes” feature yet… Would be nice if they focus on stuff we actually need instead of bunnies in the interface.

Plus one! Please keep the cursors!

Bruh, such a cool feature that brings joy and sets a positive mood even in the work field. And - you can turn it off. As a designer, I am utterly in love with this option for customization and felt kinda sad when today I opened Figma and didn’t see it. It’s not functional, but it makes you smile. And that’s another thing I like about it. So why so serious?

That literally helps brighten any situation, even if it seems “stupid” to some and may have caused some issues and bugs, I’d still prefer if they stayed! It honestly helped bring a little joy to some meetings in the last couple of days, not only among team designers but other team members as well! When my team and I were having our last meeting of the week, we were all saddened by the absence of our custom cursors. ):
