It’s not a big problem, but it really drives me up a wall for some reason.
When I select text, it highlights in blue and then fades to my chosen highlight color (as set in my styles file). It doesn’t do this all the time. It doesn’t do it in newly opened files, however it will start happening on some files and continue happening until I close and reopen the file.
I’m using Atom 1.3.3 on a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.8.5.
The best I can figure is that some key combination is handing over highlighting control to the system defaults, but I can’t figure out what’s causing it or where those settings are coming from.
You can see it on the image below. I started highlighting at the top of the page dragged down.
