The note cursor indicates the new position on the notation bar after each move. You can then see from the shape of the note cursor whether a note (cross) or something with duration=0 (square) is being pointed. A circle indicates that the cursor is no longer on an object, but is ready to be entered with <Enter>. On the status line you can see the properties of such an object (note/rest/text/symbol or other 'thingy').
