Subject: [TxMt] Change caret width
Is there a possibility to change the width of the caret so that it would
appear to be a blinking rectangular?
Not that I know of, but you might at least try to turn on the "highlight current line" preference:
go to Preferences
Check "Visual Ornaments: Highlight current line"
You can then move over to the Fonts & Colors tab and pick a background color for the current line.
Also, the shortcut Command-L is good for centering the current line vertically in your window (if it's possible). Between those two, I can usually find my current line.
I realize that's only one dimension, and you were hoping for two. I don't know of anything to help you locate the current column, short of doing something manual, like pressing Shift-RightArrow to make a selection that would stand out. Not what you were after, but that's the most hope I can offer.
I betcha, if challenged properly, one of the wunderkinds of this list like Hans or Ciarán can whip together a plug-in that does just what you're looking for. But that task is not for me.
