Description Neal 2011-10-07 12:40:55 UTC

When I click into a class or property in MD 2.8 it highlights it in grey, which is fine, however, I suggest revising the highlight colors as the highlight is quite dark.  Use a lighter grey or silver is what I would suggest.

Selection colors are too dark on dark themes.
Comment 4 Mike Krüger 2013-01-30 01:47:06 UTC
Selection colors look fine to me in all dark themes.
(btw. has nothing to do with the original bug anyways)

'Selection colors are too dark' is quite different to the discussion topic there ... 

fortunatley that's fixed already (I think miguel opened a bug about that) - but it's not in 4.0 (as well as tons of other fixes).
