Highlight color for selected text


how to change the color of selected text in atom text editor currently im not getnig any background color on selected text aso it makes harder for me to see that is selected and what not .


The quick fix is to add something like this to your styles.less:

atom-text-editor::shadow {
  .selection .region {
    background-color: yellow;

But it sounds like there is a bug in the syntax theme you’re using. You might want to submit a bug on that.


I have the same problem and it is theme at fault. One Light has this problem.

@leedohm, thanks for the fix.


yay !! finally it worked thanks for your help .
i’m using iplastic theme and it also has the same problem hope developer fixes this in next update .
