Thanks a million. This makes the cursor so much easier to see!

I wish it blinked, but that's kind of ridiculous functionality to ask for in a plug-in. Hopefully a block cursor style will be added to the official release in the future.


I am not a python programmer, I wonder if I could get a copy of your changes for non vintage mode?

If you add both of the following to "Settings - User", you can get it be be blinky and wide at the same time:

Code: Select all
"caret_style": "phase"

"wide_caret": true


Check the "Settings - Default" and search for "caret_style" for more options on the rate and style of blinking. The only other thing I've thought to do is alter the caret color in your preferred color scheme. I have mine set to some horrendously bright color so that it always galares out of the monitor.

I've set the thing as wide as I can, but like a few others above, I could really go for a block cursor. I'm not a programmer; I use Sublime Text (and Komodo Edit, which is uglier but very easy to configure for a non-programmer) to write and prep copy for online publication, and after a long day, that skinny little supermodel cursor is just too damned hard to find.

Thanks for building an interesting (and pretty) editor.

Just to be clear: I'd also prefer a block cursor option.

Remove lines 22,23,24
Code: Select all
        if view.settings().get('is_widget') or not view.settings().get('command_mode'):
            view.erase_regions('SublimeBlockCursorListener')
            return

So that It only does
Code: Select all
self.show_block_cursor(view)

In the file:
