How to change the lightblue highlight when clicking on a word or character


i cant seem to figure out how to change this is my personal stylesheet


Do you mean the highlight color of selected text?

You may want to take a look at this FAQ:

The stylesheet modification should be to add:

atom-text-editor::shadow {
  .highlight.selection {
    color: pink;


i meant along the lines of this picture the light blue boxs on the angle brackets are the color i want to change


Did you know that the Atom Flight Manual has information on how to find this information for yourself? Decorations such as the bracket-matcher package’s are a bit harder to find, but they’re in there :grinning:

atom-text-editor::shadow {
  .bracket-matcher .region {
    border-bottom: 1px solid yellow;


Thanks I didn’t know about the .bracket-matcher attribute
