Highlighting FOUND text in RStudio editor

Really enjoy working with RStudio save for one annoyance: Is there a way to customize the color of found text (the result of a Find operation) in the editor?

I use a dark theme generally and find it really hard to discern the result of a find operation quickly. Ideally, the result would be backed in yellow or white or something to make it immediately obvious.

I know this was asked a couple years ago but didn't see if perhaps something's changed that I've missed. Thanks for any help.

Hello Robert,

I've had the same question and came across this solution that Mara links to in the answers. I've not tried it myself yet but hope this helps.


Thank you, Brian. That looks as though it should do the trick. Will dig in tomorrow.
