0003790: Text cursor too bright
Hi,

when I want to type text in squeak (methods for example), I often find myself looking for the text cursor (the one that inform you where the following typed character will be placed).

It's in a very bright green color which can't be easily found on a white background.

Can somebody please change this ? Maybe a darker green or a black color or even a two pixel width.

Something than can be executed to change the color:

Preferences insertionPointColor: (TranslucentColor r: 0.0 g: 0.8 b: 0.0 alpha: 0.8).

In addition to programatically setting the insertion-point (BTW a good place to put such a call is in a personalized "theme" method), you can also set it interactively by using the "insertion point color..." item found in the "Appearance" menu.

CaretEnh.2.cs adds a new preference for the caret-width and changes the default color of the caret and the selection to something more visible.
