Like many, I find it hard to work with a blinking cursor. I've just started using ShareLaTeX, and it's great, but the blinking cursor in the editing panel is genuinely tough to deal with. I found a potential solution on this page: http://www.jurta.org/en/prog/noblink, which gives the following 'userstyle' code:

@-moz-document domain("www.sharelatex.com") {
.ace_cursor {
visibility: visible !important;

Using Google Chrome, I used 'Inspect' to add the above code as a 'New Style Rule', but alas nothing.

Perhaps a different CSS syntax is needed for Chrome? Perhaps there's a simpler fix within ShareLaTeX?

    Welcome to TeX.SX! I'm afraid this is the wrong place to ask this question as it has nothing to do with TeX but with web programming and browser settings. – gernot Mar 20 '17 at 16:53
  • Hi gernot, could you direct me to the appropriate place to share this question in that case?I thought I'd share it here in case there was LaTeX-specific method of dealing with this issue, despite my attempt using CSS /browser settings. – ddm_ingram Mar 22 '17 at 0:33
  • I'd try it at the ShareLaTeX site. Choose the Help menu, there is an entry for contacting them. – gernot Mar 22 '17 at 9:13
