Jetbrains (Intellij etc) IDEs Not Refocusing #841
In the latest versions of the Jetbrains IDEs such as Intellij IDEA (starting at 2018.2), if the window is unfocused and then refocused, the window is not actually refocused and the cursor disappears. This happens both when switching away to another desktop and then back, and also when switching to an adjacent window on the same desktop and then back.
When switching between an IDE window and an adjacent terminal, when moving focus back to the IDE, the window border surrounds the IDE but I can still type in the terminal. Pretty weird.

I've made a short video to demonstrate: https://youtu.be/Qh68yzVydS4
Here are some potentially relevant other discussions on similar problems, but I'm not sure if they're relevant at all since they seem to be mostly resolved and were reported earlier than 2018.2.
Thanks so much for your help.
Thank you! It completely worked for me! :) You freed me from months of frustration.
