I have version 188.8.131.52 on my MacBook Pro. I consider it a poor
substitute for the Windows version. I can't turn off the blinking
cursor (extremely annoying!), I can't change the background color
(white background gives me a headache), hotkeys don't work, etc. Is
there an alternative binary that I could download?
LyX 184.108.40.206 uses Qt for the user interface. (I'm not sure which Qt
version, but I have LyX 220.127.116.11 on Linux Mint, and my copy uses Qt
5.12.8.) On Linux there's a Qt configuration utility that lets you
change settings globally for all apps using the Qt library. I don't see
an on/off switch for cursor blink, but there is a setting for "Cursor
flash time", and setting that to 0 ms. seems to make the cursor not
blink. This would affect all Qt-based apps on your system, but it sounds
as if you would not object to losing cursor blink in other apps.
The key question is, is there a Qt configuration app for MacOS?
