Abnormally Tall Insertion Point

I have downloaded the 30 day trial of Scrivener & love it but can’t get my insertion point to a normal size. I’ve tried changing it from block insertion & back as well as zooming, changing font & size, using both the last Scrivener version & just today the new 2.0 & although my cursor is a normal size, the insertion point is so tall it nearly hits the line of text above it. It’s incredibly distracting. I never had this problem with MS Word though I did with Bean. Anyone know what the problem could be?

This is just the way the OS X text system deals with the insertion point, unfortunately - it’s always the same height as the whole line, so for double-line spacing it’s always twice as tall.

Just to be clear, the insertion point takes up the entirety of the blank space between sentences, no matter whether it’s single or double spaced, whereas in MS Word it is only as big as a capital letter. Is that how you understood it? If so, it sounds like there’s no way to change it, right?

Thank you for your help!

That is correct, there is no way to change this, realistically speaking. Word uses an entirely different text engine and they have an entire department of programmers working on it. :slight_smile:
