Windows Ease of Use carat width is not honored

Windows allows the user to define the carat width (under 'Ease of Use') so that those with vision issues can locate the current insertion point.

Syntax Editor does allow me to set the CaratWidth (which I am doing as a work around) but it always defaults to a width of 1, when the Windows standard is that it should default to whatever the user set this value to.

Hi Mike,

We have to give the property a const default value so that its DefaultAttribute can be set.  That being said, you are already doing what we would recommend, and that is to update the editor.Caret.InsertWidth to the system-defined value on on app startup.
