In Sonoma, Apple changed up how their text insertion point looked, making it roundish and thick, and that carried over into Scrivener (Apple’s fault, not Scrivener’s). I hate the new insertion point, and I found a line of code on the internet that reverts the insertion point back to its previous look. It worked for me, hopefully you too.
- Open up your Terminal app (Applications > Utilities > Terminal)
- Paste this in:
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/FeatureFlags/Domain/UIKit.plist redesigned_text_cursor -dict-add Enabled -bool NO
- Terminal will ask for your password. This is your Mac account/user password.
- Reboot your machine.
- Ta da! The pre-Sonoma insertion point is back! All is well in the world.
