Brush cursor disappears on most colors

This is driving me crazy.  I do not have the caps lock on nor is the brush size too large, yet I am constantly loosing sight of the cursor.  I have to wiggle it around the screen to re-find it.  It is way too thin.  Isn't there a way I can mke it thicker so I can see it?  It would be nice if the cursor was set in Difference mode so the color would be visible on a colored-paint area.  I have  searched and searched for an answer to this and cannot fine it.  I am using Photoshop CC 2020.  I did not have this problem until I updated to Creative Cloud.  I have an iMac, Catalina OS.  It is so hard to get my work done with this cursor and I am tired of having my face next to the computer screen.  I have a 27" screen so size of the screen is not the problem.  Does anyone have a solution?

 

Also, being new to this forum (I joined in 2010, but barely used it until now), how do I post a solution to a person's problem?  I didn't see anywhere to reply.

 

Thank you in advance if you can help me.

Thank you very much.  Guess it is just an Adobe and a Mac Catalina thing.  I will have to wait for Adobe to catch with all the Mac OS changes.  At least I will not be spending so much time trying to search for the fix.  I appreciate you taking the time to respond to my "problem".

I keep the + turned on in the middle of my brush - you can find it in the preferences. That might help. I teach PS online and use something called cursor pro. It creates a big obnoxious colored circle around my cursor - you won't lose it. Maybe that will help.

Thank you so much!  I tried the crosshair in my cursor as you suggested but I dont' think that will help my problem.  The crosshair is very small.  I am interested in Cursor Pro, however I can't find enough information about how it works and what it works with.  Does it work with Photoshop brushes?  If so it is just what I am looking for.  What about when you are typing in Pages.  I often go back and edit a line in what I am typing and then I can't find the cursor. Would it work in that instant?  It looks like a lot of people use it for presentions and teaching.  I would not be using it for that.  I really couldn't find much information on how it works.  Most of what I read was as a magnifier and for teaching/presetnations.  I do appreciate your replies; thank you very much, in advance.

I use it for teaching. It's just there so you can see your cursor. I can't screenshot it for you because the cursor hides for a screenshot. It's literally just a big circle around your cursor so you and/or others can see it on your screen.
