Prompts you in the command bar:
Selection area for entity snap (1-50 pixels) <10>: (Enter a value between 1 and 50, or press Enter to keep the default value.)
The aperture cursor works with entity snaps only. The program searches the area inside the rectangular aperture cursor for geometric features, such as endpoints and mid points.
A large aperture cursor makes it easier for you to hover over geometric features, but then the program may find too many matching entity snap points; a smaller one may be more difficult for you to position over geometry, but is more precise at snapping to geometric features. The default value of 10 is a good compromise.
By default, the aperture cursor is turned on. Use the ApBox system variable to turn it off.
