Cursor is invisible in document window

After upgrading to 11.1.4 the block cursor is invisible in the document window.

If I simply click anywhere on the document I would expect to see the blinking block cursor where I clicked and the row highlighted.
Instead only the row is highlighted. Moving the cursor around with the arrow keys works as expected, but the cursor remains invisible the whole time.
I expect the cursor is being set as the same color as the "caret row" color.
Setting my colors to the default color scheme does not fix the issue.
Does the "caret" referred to in the editor preferences mean the same thing as cursor or are these different things?


I use the IdeaVim plugin. When placing the document in insert mode, the insert cursor does appear.
Disabling IdeaVim does not restore the block cursor.

I'm running OSX 10.8.2
java -version
java version “1.6.0_37″
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_37-b06-434-11M3909)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.12-b01-434, mixed mode)

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

-Joe

Looks very similar to IDEA-87889.

Denis,

The issue for me seems to go away with the latest 12 EAP build.

Is there a known workaround for the focus issue in 11.1.4? Some of the comments in youtrack alluded to a workaround, but I couldn't find it.

Thanks,

We still receive reports about that problem for v.12 as well.

As a workaround you can open new heavy-weight IDE window/dialog (e.g. settings dialog) and switch back to the editor.
