Sorry to hear you are having issues. But, cut and paste from where?
To create your own cursor. This is how I usually do it. Prepare all my cursor states graphics. Standard select, Help select, Working in background etc.
Once all is done, I use the import graphics button for each State. And fill up those boxes with appropriate number.
Repeat again and again until all the Cursor States is done. (20 States) if you wish you can do the 20 more states for the "pressed state"
