When editing a cell, say for example by using F2, the cursor does not appear.  But if you left click in the formula bar the cursor appears.  Any ideas?

You don't get the cursor because you're not editing the cell yet.

If you want to edit the cell right away, double click on it.

Check in TOOLS - OPTIONS - EDIT, see if edit directly in cell is checked.  Try the opposite setting from what it is.
