LibreOffice Writer text highlighting of search results

In LibreOffice Writer I wish to change the highlighted text color for search results when using Find.
Currently the highlighted/selected text is shown with a thin-green-bordered box around the found text.
I wish to change this box to a solid color but cannot find any setting that will achieve this.
Can anyone please advise?

thanks for the hint.
with the xfce4-settings-manager - appearance I can select several themes.
Is there any possibility to change the highlighting color without selecting a new theme?

Sorry for late answer. I think it is possible with the theme customisation utility. Note that you’ll change the highlight colour for all applications.
