    The above solution did not work for me using the Tile Palette Window. But I found a solution that worked for me. I found a way to fix this error in 2020.3.42f1 and I'm sure it would work on 2018.x and 2019.x as well. Click on the texture to use as a cursor, then change it from Sprite(2D and UI) to Cursor in Texture Type. Click on the Advanced drop-down arrow and for Alpha Source change it to Input Texture Alpha, check the Alpha Is Transparent box, if it's checked, uncheck the Ignore PNG file gamma, click the Read/Write Enabled box, and on Generate Mip Maps, uncheck the box. And down in format for default change it to RGBA 32bit and also change it if you are building for PC, WebGL, and Android to the same RGBA 32bit. Not sure if these are the settings needed for iOS or Mac builds, as I don't have an Apple product to test this on.
