Possible to show multiple cursors with SHIFT+CTRL+I?

I'm trying the SecureCRT 8.5 beta, and I love the CTRL+SHIFT+I feature that allows you send command window keystrokes to all sessions simultaneously. One thing that is a challenge, however, is that if you use try to edit a file with "nano" for example, you can't tell where you are in the file you're editing because there is no cursor.

If a cursor could be displayed in all sessions that will be receiving the characters that are sent, it would be really helpful for using command line editor such as nano.

Or, is there already a way to turn the cursor on in this scenario?

Hi spockdude,

It sounds like you may have SecureCRT configured to display multiple sessions at once using something like Tile Vertically or Horizontally. Is that the case?

If so, in my testing if I click into one session, giving it focus, the cursor only appears in that session. If I click in the Command Window the cursor becomes visible on all sessions. Does clicking in the Command Window (giving if focus) give you the functionality you're looking for?
