Using Find / Replace in Writer the selection found in the text document is highlighted in a pale peach colour. This makes it almost impossible to see to discern the text found. Is there some way to change that choice of colour? I've looked in the Appearance colour set of Preferences and don't see an entry that will do so. I'm using LibreOffice version under Mac OS 10.7.5.

Excellent - thanks!! On my Mac OS this becomes: Preferences -> LibreOffice -> View & I simply unchecked "Transparency". Now I get a highly visible bit reversal: black text on white background becomes white text on black background.
