Invisible Blinking Cursor in Text-Area

Hello everyone,

I'm reaching out to see if anyone has come across an issue with text areas. Specifically, the blinking cursor (caret) becomes invisible, making it challenging for users to see where they're typing. The text area remains editable, and text input works as expected, but without the visual cue of the cursor's position.

Has anyone experienced a similar problem or found a solution to make the blinking cursor visible?

Any insights or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

Hi @Mike_Buenaventura, welcome to the forum! :wave:

This is normal behavior when typing on text inputs, not just in Retool but anywhere, from a text editor to any search bar in your operating system.
On Windows, there seems to be a way to change this setting.
On Mac OS, it looks like there is not a way to change this.

However, most inputs, including Retool's, should be focused when you are typing.

Wiggling the cursor a bit should make it reappear at any moment.
