Since (I think) new editor component I've still come across occasions where the caret disappears. I can't reproduce exactly what causes it but it seems to happen when I've been doing a lot of cut+paste (ctrl-x/ctrl-v).
The bracket highlighting still works, but the caret itself gets stuck in one place. Changing the caret type in settings does change the caret but it still doesn't move. The only way I've found to fix is to restart pspad. -- <https://forum.pspad.com/read.php?6,76011,76059> PSPad freeware editor https://www.pspad.com
