My cursor has changed to this blinking dot, very annoying since it is easy to misjudge whether this is the top or bottom part of the normal text cursor, therefore I often type in the wrong line.
This issue has happened to me multiple times already, resizing the window like described in the archived thread above does not fix the problem. I am running Ubuntu 15.10. Is there a way to fix it without restarting the SQL Developer?
