It is enabled when you have a read-only document. 

So write some text, save it and click on the "edit file" button to switch to read-only.

In read-only you don't normally have a visible cursor but if you toggle that function then you get a visible text cursor which you can use to easier select text with the keyboard for example.

I'm not so sure that it is a very useful feature to have in the menus, but it is at least working the way it is intended to work.
