Description

One of the changes to GTK+ is to have a setting where text cursors stop flashing after a short period.

It would be very good for abiword to do likewise.

We are trying to avoid gratuitous timer wakeups of the CPU, and with DCON mode, we may even be turning the CPU off behind abiword's back.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Fixed in AbiWord CVS HEAD. It will honour the gtk "gtk-cursor-blink-timeout" setting.
