Cursor issue in Linux Mint 19.2

I have been using Audacity 2.3.2 on Linux Mint 19.2. It was working fine but suddenly, the cursor (I-Beam) has either disappeared entirely when working inside a track OR it has a goofy looking box surrounding it. Very odd and difficult to work with…if at all. Anyone have a solution to restore my cursor to it’s former self ?

Use the shortcut function key F1 to restore the I-beam cursor.
