Mini-map location highlighting


I have not found a way how to change the color of the mini-map location highlighting. It's always blue, regardless of editor or system color scheme. I believe it should depend on the "Selection Background" color of the system color scheme or on the "Selected Text" color of the editor color scheme.

Use QPalette::highlight for the scrollbar minimap slider

Previously, QPalette::link() was used which is the color for hyperlinks.
Most themes set this to a shade of blue, so the slider will almost
always be blue even when, for example, the main color
of a theme is green.

The selection highlight color was chosen because it is also the color
used for indicating the active tab and is, generally, often attuned
to a theme's main color.
