Hi.

I am using InDesign 16.0 on macOS Catalina 10.15.7.

When I use InDesign, my cursor flickers. It doesn't happen with Photoshop or Illustrator.

I already tried resetting the preferences, but nothing changed.

Thank you for you help.

I have exactly the same setup as you and don't experience that. Can you be more specific about when your cursor flickers.

I habe the same problem:

If there is one document open in psd, the cursor flickers in different other programs – it changes its form from the tool to the normal MAC cursor very quickly. This problem occurs ind indd, illustrator, safari, mail eg. when i close all doks in psd the problem is gone. BUT: I´m workin parallel with all programs, interactive, so i cant always close documents to erase this problem.

Please Adobe fix this problem – in my opinion the problem is bases partially to the tool settings in PSD!

Thanks @moellerart  I have been suffering from that flickering cursor forever – I think you have figured it out: Closing all PS documents 'solves' it — not a real solution though. Your post is a already a year old but unfortunatly Adobe still has not fixed the issue. Maybe next year.
