Hi Kasper. (Remember me? :-)

I just installed Cadabra2 on openSUSE LEAP 15.1 but immediately encountered the following bug (or is it a feature?).

When attempting to highlight some text (intending to copy or delete it, or whatever), the text seemed to just disappear instead of being highlighted. After a while I realized it's because the highlighted text is actually white on a pale grey background, making it almost invisible.

I tried playing with the "highlight syntax" options, but failed to find anything applicable.
Is there some other preferences setting elsewhere that would fix this? If not, then... how?

Kind regards.

Took a while, but this is now resolved in 2.3.1 on github.

It still doesn't work properly for me on 2.3.1. (OpenSUSE Leap 15.1, KDE.)
The highlighted text is visible (dark blue box around white text) if I move my cursor outside the Cadabra window, but as soon as I move the cursor back inside it reverts to near-invisible white text on pale grey background. :-(

That's strange. On my OpenSUSE 15.0 machine with KDE, marked text is white on a dark grey background when the cursor is inside the window.
