In the context it was easy to understand what "text-marker" is for.
Even the English Wiki describes the "cursor" as a marker.

"[...] The mouse cursor is also called a pointer [...] A cursor is the
name given to the transparent slide engraved with a hairline that is
used for marking a point on a slide rule. The term was then transferred
to computers through analogy. [...] The idea of a cursor being used as
a marker or insertion point for new data or transformations, such as
^^^^^^^^                    ^^^^^^^^^^^^
rotation, can be extended to a 3D modeling environment. [...]" -

"a marker for new data"
"a marker for text"
