    Text Editing - Cursor Missing

    Good morning All,

    I hope this is the correct area of the forum to be posting in.

    I have a problem in Revit 2021when editing text. When I double click to access the text editing, the small vertical cursor does not appear to show where your editing point is located, so it can be trial and error when starting to type! At the moment the only way around it appears to be being very accurate with the pointer location when double clicking.

    Does anyone have a solution to enable to cursor to reappear when editing text?

    Many Thanks!!

    I am not having this issue in 2021 ... which sub-version are you using (I have 21.1.0.108)?

    After you double-click to activate the editor, does clicking to the location you want to edit show the cursor?

    Have you closed & restarted Revit? Have you restarted your computer? (I know ... initial standard troubleshooting questions, but those often reset glitches.)

    Other random ideas: video card related? Hardware acceleration on? off?

    i see this often (or rather don't see the cursor) in sheet & view naming parameters. also deleting or typing in a new name can be really slow. i've never found a solution to either one.

    Turning off the hardware acceleration seems to have resolved the problem! Many thanks for the helpful tips
