In the Confluence source editor: how do I change the color of the highlight for found text?

I will often enter text in the Find box when I am viewing content in the source editor. (This helps me navigate to the correct line.) When the text is found, it is highlighted in gray (by "highlighted" I mean that the background of the found text is gray).

How do I change the highlight color from gray to something else? In the regular editor, found text is highlighted in yellow, which helps my eye find the text on the page. It's hard to find gray highlights.

Hello Susan,

As far as I am able to tell there is not custom color support for the Source Editor. I went ahead and filed the following feature request.

Please visit that issue and vote on it to increase its visibility. I will also attach this post so our developers know that our community is looking for this feature

thanks, Daniel. I voted for this issue. Late last year, I voted for Obama. ;)
