Need bright text cursor on dark themes

I prefer a dark background, so I'm using Bear app with a dark theme on my Mac. One thing I'd like to suggest is about a text cursor.
It's sometimes hard to find the text cursor on dark themes because the cursor is always black regardless of which theme is selected.
On some other apps I had used before Bear (like Ulysses), the text cursor turns into white on dark themes so I can easily see it.
I hope I can have white or bright text cursor for dark themes on Bear soon.
I love Bear and thank you for the great app!

    Hi Jay,

    your suggestion totally make sense, we have a lot of work to do right now and I can't assure we'll work on it soon, but we'll surely give dark cursors a shot.

    I agree - great app, but hard to use the dark themes with a black cursor.
