black block for cursor image in viewer

running 6.10.3.0 viewer and host on win 10 . Whenever the cursor is positioned to an inputtable field in the host window the cursor changes to a large black block and "ins ert" icon.. quite distracting though it does not seem to affect functionality. I saw this same behavior was observed in 6.10.2.0

Its almost like the text insert icon is se t on  a black background..

Hello Keith,

Thank you for your message. Could you tell us the name of the application on the remote Host where the input field is located?

Hello Keith,

Another question - did you change your cursor settings in Windows (on the Host computer) from Windows defaults to something else?

Hi Conrad.
    It happens in just about any app that has text entry ( Word, Edge, IE, Excel). No changes to default Win10  cursor or display properties. I'm doing some further checking as I think it may be associated with default Win10 display scaling as the host I see it on is a new laptop which Windows defaults to 150% scaling because of the screen resolution. In this case the host and viewer are identical with the same default 150% screen scaling.

I definitely has to do with the win10 default display scaling...  If I change the display scaling to 100% on the host the artifact disappears. changing host display back to the default 150% displays the cursor as  the uploaded image

Interestingly, it seems to be associated to the host. If I change the display scaling to 199% on the viewer, but leave the host at 150%, the cursor artifact remains. so it would seem that it is the host that is sending the "block" to the viewer.

Hello Keith,

There is a possible workaround - please, try enabling "Use legacy capture mode" in the Host settings. You might need to restart the Host after that.

thanks Conrad,
  Legacy capture mode seems to resolve the issue.
