This question - How to change selected cell color - was asked and appeared to have been badly answered at ask.libreoffice.org/question/1108/libreoffice-calc-print-range/. The answer seemed to incorrectly intrepret the question to mean how to apply a background color to a cell or cells.
Please answer the question: How to change the default selected cell color? The reason this is needed is because the default cell color in my Libreoffice 3.6 in Linux Mint 13 is a pale yellow which does not sufficiently stand out. Same in Libreoffice Writer: selection of text and table cells is this pale yellow.
Appreciate knowing how to change this. Please answer even if above average computer literacy is required to apply the solution.
