Inserting Characters at text cursor position

Hi! I have a text string and I want to insert a symbol into the string at text cursor position. In order to do this I’d like to constantly save on loss of focus where the cursor was by slicing the string and storing into a pre and post position variable so I can just concatenate them together with the inserted symbol and update the text but I can’t figure out how to find the current cursor position or the character before or after it.


I’d also like to know how to do this.

Hi all,

Setting text at the caret position currently isn’t natively supported within the tool, and I’ll be filing a feature request so that we can evaluate it. For what it’s worth, what seemed to help others in this situation is to incorporate JavaScript. Here’s an approach by josephxbrick in case you’re familiar with JS and wanted to check out:
