I am using Libreoffice 5.4.7 and deal with large volumes of text and data between Writer and Calc.

Very often I need to search for a particular string of text or number and using Ctrl-F allows me to do this.

What I am battling with and would like to be able to change is the colour indicating a text or number match.

I went into my installed version Preferences and did not find a reference to changing the selection colour, which currently seems to be a feint pink when identifying a match with the search criteria.

I have reviewed the release notes on the LO download page for both the stable and cutting edge versions and none mention a change that would assist.

I also visited <> from 2014 but could not find the 'Transparency' setting, as obviously the app version has changed. Besides I would prefer to select my own colour i.e. green, not just have the text match inverted.

I also tried to find something in the app at:
Libreoffice>Preferences>Libreoffice>Application colours


P.S: I am on the Libreoffice users mailing list
