Change selected word highlight color in source?

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?

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


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

And right after I posted, I ran across this post: 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:
