Description Paulo 2021-04-28 16:24:38 UTC
In konsole version 21.04.0, when highlight text with mouse left-button, the font color remains the same, and highlighted background is dark grey.

If you change the color scheme to 'Black on White' and print some text in cyan [code]echo -e '\e[36;1mtext\e[m'[/code] (or yellow, 33 instead 36), there is no difference between non-highlighted and highlighted text. 

1. Select a text with mouse in konsole.
2. The font color remains the same and background is dark grey (or transparent if the background color is white).

It is very difficult to see what is highlighted.

Would be better if highlighted text be the same as the previous konsole version 20.12.3, in reverse colors, e.g. white text highlighted becomes background color text with white background,
green text becomes background color text with green background, and so on.

Linux: Slackware -current (dev branch)

Thanks, I did a search but I couldn't find that ticket already opened.
I hope we get the highlighted inverted colors again :)
