Change cursor color to use with a dark stylesheet?

GROUPS:

Hello, when using a dark stylesheet, my cursor disappears in the input cells. Is there any way to change the color and size of the cursor using either stylesheets or with the option inspector?

Thanks

Hi Marco, thanks for the reply.

Actually, I did see that stackexchange article before posting here and also: https://mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/1631/

Unfortunately, I found both confusing and was hoping for either a stylesheet or option inspector solution that was fairly easy to implement. I guess the alternative is not to use black or dark gray as a background and figure out something to get more contrast.

If anyone is looking for an answer, there are two different types of cursors used in the input cell. The one I was having the most problems with was the cursor that appears between characters. I discovered its color is set in the stylesheet under:

"Styles for Mathematica System-specific Elements" -> "Format Type Styles" -> "CellLabel"

I think the size is dependent on the size of the font.
