Changing Block Cursor Shape
« on: April 17, 2015, 09:20:17 pm »
I'm using SlickEdit 2014.  By default the block cursor is thick in insert mode and thin in overwrite mode.  I would like the opposite.  It's been a while, but I know in previous versions I was able to set the cursor top and bottom values for insert and overwrite and also based on whether the cursor was on a character or in open space.  I've found calls like "_cursor_shape('-v 750 1000 450 1000 750 1000 450 1000');" in defaults.e and other places, changing these values had no effect.  I'm using Brief emulation mode (though a lot of my key bindings are changed).  Most of my editing is done on C/C++ language files, but I'd like the cursor behavior to be the same across all file types.  Can anyone tell me how to make these changes?
