How to change the highlight color *in settings*


Anyone knows how to change the highlight color part in settings?



Do you mean the theme, or a specific colour?

Hmm, I can’t change the highlight colour either. The best I could do was change the colour outside of the selected text. Not that I know CSS mind…


I would like to just change the color of the highlight (to select the text) any idea? (the color of the current highlight is nearly invisible)


Try adding this to styles.less:

atom-text-editor[mini] .selection {
  background: cadetblue !important;

Change background color of selected text on Settings page
