Hello, all. Just to clarify, this post is not dealing with using the highlighting tool. I use e-Sword regularly while presenting lessons in church services and during home Bible studies. It is an excellent tool! I use it with both wireless projectors and flat-screen TV's. Many times, while reading out loud, I select individual words, verses, and passages with my cursor. This technique makes it easier for people to follow along, especially visitors who are not very familiar with the Bible. In version 10.4, text would turn white upon selection and the surrounding color was a nice sky blue. (See file version-10-highlighting.png.) Selected text popped out and was easy to read. With the introduction of version 11, however, selected text no longer turns white and the color surrounding the text has changed too. It's not a good highlighting color, rather a pale grayish-blue. (See version-11-highlighting.png.) It's not as easy to read as before when projecting on a screen or flat-screen TV. I wrote Rick Meyers about this two times, but he never answered. My guess is that he feels that changing the color of highlighted text and/or the highlight color itself is not important or not worth the effort involved in changing the coding. Is there anyway that e-Sword could be tweaked to change this back to the style used in 10.4 or to create a highlighting color that will make the text stand out better? I've attached two snapshots to give you a better idea of what I'm talking about. Of course, I realize that whether or not version 10 is easier to read than version 11 is somewhat subjective. Some may not agree with my estimation.
