Misc Setup is a plugin for the universal !Boot configuration system and allows you to configure various options which aren't catered for in the standard configuration options. Although, I aim to develop this utility to provide access to any options people require, at present it provides the easy configuration of several facilities:-
What's new in version 1.13
The 'Big mouse pointer' option.
IMPORTANT NOTE The default installation location of MiscSetup changed at v1.09. If you are upgrading from an earlier version, please ensure that you read the ReadMe1st file contained within the archive. This contains important installation notes.
If you want to customise your desktop ToolSprites, you may find my ToolMaker utility useful. This allows you to customise the various RISC OS desktop window tool sprites by changing colour and designs. ToolMaker can automatically integrate with MiscSetup and create the relevant ToolSprite icons for you.
Visit the ToolMaker web page for more information.
I've not implemented the full range of selecting colours for the 3D effects in windows yet, but hope to add this to a future version.
