Description

It would be useful to change the color of text selection (perhaps by the user). On some monitors is too light and unreadable, especially in the pages full of text.
Two screenshot attached, with a mockup (just for example).

Hi Giova84, would you say #7034 is close enough, making this ticket a duplicate?

comment:2 by leavengood, 9 years ago

This is indeed close to #7034, but different enough that I think we can keep it open (for example the idea of making the color configurable is good.) I may try to knock this out some time this week since it should be fairly easy.

comment:3 by humdinger, 9 years ago

Great if you can find the time! I would like to vote against making it configurable, however. Better to find the perfect default. :) Maybe the highlight colour can someday be adapting to the background colour.

comment:4 by Giova84, 9 years ago

Hi Humdinger, in my humble opinion the configurable color is better, because the perfect default (the color) is relative in according to own preference of users :-)
Best regards.

In the last available release of Webpositive (hrev583) i saw the new color of text selection: is more brighter and noticeable than the previous color.

For me that's ok!

But in anyway (as low priority in todo list) would be nice have a personal configuration of colors!

The red highlight is going to be real popular with people who have red-green colour blindness. Why not an nice shade of gray?

I'm not sure I'm a fan of letting users select the text-selection colour. That seems to take customizations a little far, but I am open. If it were added, I think it might be easier for the "average user" to select from a limited grid of colours like the way Bezilla's Options work.

Hi Disreali,

each of us can suggest a color: because the best color depend on personal tastes of each user :-) I guess that a color picker like bezilla's color selector would be the best choose!
