Is there a way to see the cursor when editing procedures?

The docs mention that the jove editor is used by default on macos, which is my system.

Where are jove docs?

Finally, are there some specific directions on setting the EDITOR variable, if one wanted to use VIM or EMACS?

On my OSX install, I do see a blinking cursor when editing procedures, this might be dependent on which version of ucblogo you are running. I'm currently on 6.2.2 running on OSX 10.15.7.

If you are using a relatively recent wxWidgets build, you are likely using the built-in wxWidgets based editor. Jove is an external editor which was included with installers in the past when it was the default editor (if you're using an older distribution, this might still be the case). There's some relevant discussion on this PR:

As of 6.2.2, external editors should work in the wxWidgets builds of ucblogo:
https://github.com/jrincayc/ucblogo-code/releases/tag/version_6.2.2

There's some documentation here:

Admittedly, the above is mostly applicable if you are running 6.2.x; if you are running an older version, it may require a different approach.

Cheers,
Dan
