Change selected word highlight color in source?

themes

#1

I am a big fan of the dark themes (especially Tomorrow Night 80’s). One of the issues I have is that the highlight effect on selected words is a little too subtle for my aging eyes. Is there anyway to change the highlight color to something a bit more garish without having to resort to another theme entirely?

Hey @jhollist, have you found a solution for this?


#3

I've been pushing for this for a while as well. Even Excel has a font color choice :laughing:


#4

I have not. Be very interested in a solution though!

And right after I posted, I ran across this post: https://www.statworx.com/de/blog/make-rstudio-look-the-way-you-want-because-beauty-matters/. Not certain the answer is in there as I haven't dug in yet, but it looks promising.

Update: Found a bit more on SO: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/25582588/any-way-to-change-colors-in-rstudio-to-something-other-than-default-options.
