------------------------------------------------------
The heavy cursor doesn't locate at the center of any
two adjacent characters. It always cover a bit more to
the left character when a normal font size was selected
but has no problem when a very large font size is
selected. This problem seems to be font size related.

Thanks for your hard working on nedit.

    This is the case with the normal cursor also. Size doesn't
    matter either. The reason is that both cursors are an odd
    number of pixels. Since there isn't any space between
    characters, it needs to be shifted to one side or the other.

    Should this be closed?

    Yes, this should be closed.
