I apologize, but this is no longer updated. I don't even use it anymore because of API limitations. I recommend looking at the original repo by netpro2k.


It can become very difficult to keep track of your cursor location. This is solved by having a "block" cursor, which is very easy to spot no matter where it is on screen. Unfortunately, Sublime Text 2 does not (yet) support this feature natively. This Plugin mimics this functionality by highlighting the area behind the cursor whenever it moves (similar to how you might highlight syntax errors, or color a comment).


With Package Control

If you have the Package Control installed, you can install BlockCursorEverywhere from inside Sublime Text itself. Open the Command Palette and select "Package Control: Install Package", then search for BlockCursorEverywhere and you’re done!

Without Package Control

Go to your Sublime Text 2 Packages directory:

Windows: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Sublime Text 2\Packages\
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/

and clone the repository there

git clone git://


These are the settings that I prefer. You can change the style of the block cursor by adding a section to your theme file like so:

    <string>Block Cursor</string>

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
