Cannot change selection colour


#1

No matter what I do, I can’t change the selection colour from the grey to anything else:

Restarting Atom makes no difference.

To clarify, I expect it to behave like any other text editor with regards to highlighting selected text: you drag and select, and the background changes colour.


#2

Solution goes inside atom-text-editor:

  &.is-focused,
  &.is-focused::shadow {
    .selection .region {
      background-color: yellow;
    }
  }
}

Thanks to @alexhicks on the slack for solving the problem!
