This dawned on me today...

to help me remember which demonstrative pronoun to use.  I'm surprised i haven't come across this somewhere else because now it seems obvious to me.

Anyway, thought i'd share in case it can help others.

Think of them like this:

ce-lui

c-eux

c-elle

c-elles

of course, just remove the hyphen and you have your correct demonstrative pronoun!
