15.1.2 No cursor visible in Input fields in Light/Medium Light themes
Since installing 15.1.2 on iMac 10.15.6 (and after restart) , I can't see my cursor (blinking) in the Find/change input field. I can type in some text though, but still no cursor visible
The issue has been fixed in the latest release of InDesign – InDesign 2021.
Please update to this new version of InDesign to get the fix.

Please fix in version 15! We have to use some plugins that still require the CC2020. It seems a minor update to change the mere appearence of cursors...
Is it going to be fixed in version 15 as well?

When using the find/change function, the cursor is missing. The function works accurately but I can't see the cursor in the text fields. A minor nuisance. I have v15.1.2
This is incredibly annoying. Please fix it.

noticed this when trying to enter in new GREP searches - the blinking cursor is nowhere to be seen :(
Same problem since updating Indesign from 15.01 to 15.1.2. On Mac OS 10.13.6. In attached, the cursor is somewhere in the Find field. I have tried resetting the preferences.
I have also tested it on Mac OS 10.15 and it's the same problem. Can you please fix this? It's very annoying.
Same here, no cursor in all palettes. Should have known better and not updated.
Mac OS 10.13.6

Same problem on Mac OS 10.14.6, ID 15.1.2 Middle Eastern Version.
No visible Insertion point in all fields when Light Interface is selected.
Is there any resolution to this yet? Would be really grateful as I also much prefer the lighter interfaces. Thanks

As Jeremy Howard pointed out below the cursor is not missing it is just dimmed to a degree of it being almost invisible. This is a consequence of picking a lighter color theme. the cursor goes lighter with each change of theme towards the lightest one.
The cursor should not change brightness.
Could someone check, if this solves the problem? (but not for "Tom L", as he uses 10.15.6):

I do not have High Sierra anny more, so I cannot check

The insertion point indicator (the flashing line that shows where your cursor is placed in text) appears to be missing from text fields in dialogs.
The issue occurs when using the lighter color settings in the interface appearance. I have discovered that the indicator is not actually missing but the color of it is changing, based on the chosen interface color. The indicator is near invisible when using the lightest interface color while it looks fine when using the darkest interface color.
To reproduce the issue, set the interface appearance preference to the lightest color option and create a new document. Now, go to the Find-Replace dialog and you will see that the insertion point indicator seems to be missing.

Same specs here: MacOS 10.14.6, Indesign just updated last night to 15.1.2 -- no cursor in most if not all boxes.
MacOs 10.14.6 - Retina display
By clicking in any field (font size, line spacing, mask for inserting texts in the index etc.) the cursor is no longer displayed after updating Indesign to version 15.1.2

Since the update to Indesign 15.1.2, the cursor is invisible when you click in menues/input fields. See demovideo attached

Having the same issue! No visible cursor in any pop up boxes-- find text, paragraph styles, etc. Please fix!!
InDesign 18.104.22.168 on iMac 10.14.6
I prefer the "light" interface for InDesign. Lately (I'm pretty sure since the last upgrade), I am unable to see the cursor when making changes in panels and menus. After trying replacing Preferences and other things, I found that the cursor CAN be seen slightly in the medium light interface setting, and more clearly in the other two darker settings. So it does seem this is a new glitch in the program itself. Can this please get fixed ASAP? Very annoying. Thank you..

Not only in F/C input field, but in ALL text input fields!
