Right now the cursor is only shown not blinking in the document that is
connected to "Insert Symbol". Thanks to hj great work in fixing the
one cursor problem it very easy to make it blink in the attached document
too. I thought about showing it this way first and would be happy to make
it blink if that is what is wanted. I'll make the change. When Mike's new
cursor code is implemented we can easily change the state of the cursor
depending on which modeless dialog has the focus. I don't know if that is
a useful feature but it would be easy to implement!
