Hello,

you can't change the color within LibreOffice at all. The color of marked (selected) text is a property of your operating system (i.e. the graphics toolkit) you use. You need to check whether your toolkit allows to change that color.

KDE/Plasma: via application systemsettings -> Colors (Section Appearance) - the element to be changed is: Selection Background

For other operating systems/toolkit (e.g. Windows, Linux/GNOME, Linux/Xfce,...) you need to consult the manuals.

Thank you :-) So you really see the change then in LibreOffice? Hm, my Linux Mint Cinnamon does not provide this feature to change. But Chrome/Brave, LibreOffice, Text have all different marking background colors.

Not all applications use the same Video Class Library - on my KDE system, I got applications, which don't use the KDE Framework, but GTK3, while others are plain old X11 applications not using any of the modern frameworks. So my statement is not: All apps have the same background colors of selected text.

Yes - if I change the Selection Background color to some red color I get:
