The Nextion editor does not provide an easy way to make blinking/flashing text.

You could cheat and in your programming cycle the color of the text to match the background and hope that you have a solid background behind the textbox in question, and you'll also need some sort of counter and modulo check to slow down the check so that it flashes at the speed you want.

In USARTHMI (Chinese clone Nextion Editor) for programing TJC screens this is standard option.
Program looks the same, has a only Chinese language :-)
Unfortunately, I Can't used him for a Nextion screen.
Simple option but is difficult.

Then buy a TJC screen and learn how to read chinese to do what you want in the TJC editor.

There is no easy way to have flashing text (that I know of) with the Nextion editor.

Maybe you can try to complain to Nextion on their forums, but be aware of two things. Patrick will probably not be very willing to listen to your suggestion and even mentioning the 3 letters T, J, and C together will likely get you instantly permabanned from their forum.
