Text selection colour within tag too subtle

Testing version: 2.0 (9735)

What were you doing: Highlighting some text within a tag so that I could change a portion of it

What feature did you use:

What happened: The colour of the highlighted text is similar/almost identical to the surrounding text meaning I was unable to discern what I’d selected.

What did you expect to happen: Selected text should be more obvious

In the following screenshot, the word “reference” is highlighted.


This issue seems to be present regardless of the active theme.

In Lighthaus, I can differentiate.

I couldn’t highlight the word articles because Bear 1 selects the whole tag (Bear 2 will select a portion of the tag. Nice!


yes, themes require some review and this sounds like a case we overlooked.

thanks for reporting this problem.
