CSS to change highlight color for commented text? Edited

When text is highlighted to signial that it's been commented on, a few things happen...

1: text is highlighted yellow until comment is resolved

2: If curser hovers over highlighted text, the yellow darkens.. then goes back to normal once curser is no longer hovering

3: once comment is resolved, the highlight dissapears completely

4. if comment is reopened, text is re-highlighted yellow

I want to change from yellow and darkened yellow to other colors.

I've found that entering .inline-comment-marker { background: #4EE2EC !important  } will forever change the highlight color regardless if comment is resolved or hovered on and .inline-comment-marker { background: #4EE2EC } will change the highlight color for about 1 second after a page refresh only to turn to the default yellow again afterwards.

Any suggestions?

note: I am entering this in the LOOK AND FEEL -> StyleSheet portion of SPACE TOOLS

Hi P.F.,

The feature request CONFSERVER-40679 has a slightly different workaround listed:

.inline-comment-marker.valid { 
lor:#000 !important; 
background: #F3F315 !important;

Can you try that and let us know if that works for you?

Kind Regards,

Yes it did. I actually figured it out slightly after I posted this question. There are 4 colors total involved with inline comment highlighting. Here they are for anyone who wishes to know the details...

.inline-comment-marker.valid { background#4EE2EC !important}

.inline-comment-marker.valid:hover {background-color#1CB0BA !important }

Great news! Glad you were able to figure it out :) 

Take care, and have a pleasant rest of your week.
