I've seen the occasional absence of the blinking cursor inside text objects many times for about 25 years on different OS platforms.

 

It comes and (somehow) goes away for no obvious reasons.

 

As for the missing blinking cursor inside panel text fields, I can also confirm that there is obviously something wrong in the most recent versions of Illustrator (sometimes). Have seen it many times during the past weeks.

 

Showing some kind of screenshot is pretty useless in this case, of course, because the only thing one would see is the missing cursor (that is: nothing).

It turns out that this is probably a major bug.

 

In Illustrator 24.2.1 (on Mac OS 10.14.6) all text fields in the whole application (panels, modal dialogs etc.) are not capable to show the cursor.

 

Does anyone see a different (better) behaviour?

Using Illustrator 24.2.1 (on Mac OS 10.15.5, Catalina), I do not see this issue at all. So if the OP is on a Mac, a system update could fix the issue.

Thanks, Jeff, for your (non-)confirmation when using Illustrator on a newer OS platform.

 

Would still be intersting if people on Mac OS 10.14.6 can confirm the cursor issue or not.

Hi Kurt, on my macOS Mojave it is blinking like a star.
