    Is it possible to change the color of the cursor? I'm using the "Copenhagen Nights Style" and a black cursor on a black background is really hard to see. What is the colorizer style item for changing the cursor from black to white?

      Hi,

      Yes it's possible to change the color of the cursor. In "Copenhagen
      Nights Style" it's under this tag:

       <item name="_caret" f="#ffffff" b="#000000" />
      

      With a HTML document open, you can test this change in "View >
      CodeColorizer > Styles > Edit" by clicking the "Apply" button.

      View > Code Colorizer > Style . Edit and manage Colorizer styles.
      Select the style you are using and scroll down to the "<Group
      Name="General">" section. Look for "<item name="_caret" f="#NNNNNN" />"
      where NNNNNN is the the RGB hex code for the caret (cursor) color.
      Change it ti whatever color you want.
