In LibreOffice Calc, how can I change the cell selection black ring to something lighter so it can be easier to see for dark backgrounds? I will attach an image to show what I mean. It would be nice if it could auto-detect if a background is dark and make it white instead of black. Is there an option somewhere to change this manually? This may also apply to OpenOffice Calc if there is a solution since they are so similar.


Can't see black ring cell selection

In this example, the "TOTAL SALES" cell is selected but the black ring is very hard to see.

    Like a "negative" colour option for the highlight box... sounds like a good feature request – Xen2050 Jun 16 '18 at 3:49
