Dark mode coloring issue in MCUXpresso IDE?

Contributor II

Hello everyone,

I just changed MCUXpresso theme to dark mode,

however when I click above a variable it automatically highlights all occurences (without this actually being my intention) in file and because of the both the colour of text and of the highlight the text just blends and it is no longer distinguisable, which is annoying, specially for the type of screen I am using.(See picture)

So I found that under Window > Preferences > General > Appearance > Colors and fonts  you can configure different colours for types of text and selections but I just don't seem to find the one for this type of selection. So I was just wondering if it is even included and if so what is the specific name for this.

Thanks a lot.
