As some other people here I had to create a forum login just to +1 this.
I'm really surprised that it wasn't already an option.


Agreed. The option of having a block cursor is a must in an editor like ST.

yes, pls block cursor. Whenever I search I loose track of the cursor. A non-blinking yellow fat block or something alike would be perfect.

You can add "inverse_caret_state": true to user preferences.

The last post in this thread indicated that in Build 3054 a block caret was again used, however, I'm currently running Build 3059:

OS X Mavericks
Sublime Text 3
Stable Channel, Build 3059

and the caret is now a blinking '_' underline character in "Normal"-mode, and a blinking '|' pipe character in "Insert"-mode.
What I'm after in "Normal"-mode is the blinking block, like that which exists in MacVim "Normal"-mode.

On my windows machine I'm running the exact same version and configuration/settings of/for ST3:

Windows 7
Sublime Text 3
Stable Channel, Build 3059

and the caret IS correctly the blinking block in "Normal"-mode with the blinking "|" pipe in "Insert"-mode just like Vim.

Why is the "Normal"-mode caret correctly a blinking block in everything else (vim, MacVim, GVim, others) on both my OS X and Windows based machines, is correct in ST3 on my Windows based machine, but only in ST3 on my OS X machine it is a blinking "_" underline character?

I've tried every suggestion to fix this I've found thus far, but nothing has fixed this issue in ST3 under OS X. Any suggestions?
