I would like a blinking block cursor too, like the one I can get in Apple Terminal
Ditto, I lose the cursor on a semi-regular basis w/long lines that wrap.
For examples of block styles, I recommend looking at Console.
There is a hidden wide_caret setting that will do what you want btw
Perhaps its only recent (in which case this suggestion can be marked completed?) but there's a SublimeBlockCursor package that does this.
That package helps, but it's a bit of a hack. The "cursor" is actually a one-character selection.
yes,i need this
Dude, ST2 has been around for longer than a year, this is a simple feature to add, please add it already.
Since most of us use syntax highlighting, a block cursor feature should consider the proper inversion of the colors considering the cursor color too in such a way the letters under the cursor are still readable.
I use proportional fonts often, in which case a block cursor perfectly following the character width is not the best solution either.
I know it's obscene, but when I use italic fonts, I would expect the cursor to be slanted too, just like in some word processors.
However, I wouldn't expect all this to work from the beginning, so implementing something basic would still be a great enhancement.
Exactly. Implementing at least a basic version wouldn't be hard, and every major editor out there supports it. This is ridiculous.
A option for a high-contrast, blinking block curosr would allow me to use (and purchase) the editor -- I've terrible eyesight, and hilighting the line alone is not enough for easy use.
"smooth", "phase", "blink", "wide" and "solid".
