Further to a thread on OOo Forum
Is it possible to change the highlight colour of selected text when OOo Writer 3.1.1 is running under Xfce 4.6.1?
After using "Find and Replace" to search for and select text, the default pale blue used since 3.1 does not stand out clearly against a white background. This is particularly problematic for short search strings and for search targets found in the Table of Contents (blue text on grey background).
According to Robert Tucker in the OOo Forum thread "On Gnome on Fedora the background of selected text can definitely be changed at System>Preferences>Appearance, Theme Tab, Customize button, Selected items button
". I cannot find any equivalent in Xfce; can it be done?
