Hi @Moritz 

do you want to change it only in one space or globally?

In current space it's for CSS 

.acs-side-bar .current-item .acs-nav-item-link {
background-colour: #yourhexhere

Hi Fabienne,


thank you for your answer. Unfortunately the CSS doesn't work in Space or Global Stylesheets. 

To change the hovering-color I used the following css, which worked:

a.acs-nav-item-link.tipsy-enabled:hover { 
background-color: #55bb72;

Hi @Moritz 

I tried in space style and it worked 🧐 I will check out tomorrow again (cause there were several more before { grayed out)
