Bar Cursor is too Thin #464

Closed
opened 6 months ago by rumpelsepp · 1 comments

I took the liberty to copy-pasta from IRC.

stefan: heya! Yesterday I was working in the lab and I realized that the cursor in neovim's insert mode is IMO too thinly rendered by foot. neovim uses a bar like cursor in insert mode. foot renders a very thin line which is hardly visible on poor light conditions. I checked alacritty and kitty, they just render a thicker bar. Is there a config knob available to change this? I did not find an according setting in the manpage.

dnkl: stefan: there isn't. But it has crossed my mind. I don't use neither the bar not the underline cursor so I tend to not notice usability issues like this.

Ha! I was actually thinking about the same. Having an option to set the bar thickness in "insert" mode would be useful indeed.
