I use vim version 8.0.707. My cursor blinks but make the character disappear half the time. I'd like it to behave as usual: display the negative color.

How can I do that please?

Thanks in advance :)

You can only change GUI vim cursor color in vim:

augroup tune_colors | au!
    au ColorScheme * hi Cursor guibg=red guifg=white
augroup END

If you use terminal vim, change cursor colors in terminal settings.

  • I'm using terminal vim so I just applied your 2nd solution. Thanks Sep 22, 2020 at 7:39
