Hi

Sorry, AFAIK it is not possible to change the default yellow highlight color.

I personally only use styles. In this case I create a character style (applied with a double click or a keyboard shortcut). You can then define your template as the default.

[EDIT]

Note: as I said before, the following steps do not allow you to change the default color of the button. They allow you to create a character style that can be applied by double-clicking in the styles window or by a keyboard shortcut

Steps:

  • Create a new document
  • Create character style:
    • Display the Character Styles in the sidebar
    • Right-Click Default StyleNewOrganizer tab: give a name▸Highlighting tab: select you color.
  • Create as template:
    • FileTemplatesSave as Template. With recent version (e.g. 5.2.2) you can tick Set as Default Template
    • With older versions FileTemplatesManage▸select your template and set as default
  • Create Shortcut
    • ToolsCustomizeKeyboard tab▸select the shortcut▸CategoryStyles: select your style▸check you have selected Writer (not LibreOffice)▸Click Modify
