Bug Description

When hovering over the search field with the mouse pointer, the mouse pointer icon does not change to a text cursor as it does with any other text field or text area in the OS/Browser/Applications - (Affects Unity 2D and Unity 3D)

Desired Resolution:
- When the pointer is over the dash search box, it should change from a arrow to a caret.
- The standard pointer caret graphic should be used.
