I don't think that it is possible currently to change the selection color - in all openoffice components selected objects (text, spreadsheet cells etc.) are always indicated in reverse colours. Maybe it would be nice to make this customizable with several modes (reverse, translucent - like in Excel XP and KSpread, solid colour etc.). This would be especially useful for Calc - having the translucent selection really helps when one edits complex spreadsheet (esp. including conditionally coloured cells etc.) and needs to make a lot of cut and paste operations. But it could be nice also in Writer...

ES->CJ: I think we could add that to the "Appearance" dialog for accessibility reasons.

Calc cell selection is changed with issue 86069 (no change to text selection for now, and no configuration).

I think that inverse should be an option, but not enabled by default. I feel that this is a situation where not only are we leaving "Eye-Candy" in, but we are doing so without benefitting the user experience. I think we should have it OpenOffice Blue/translucent blue by default, and, as was said earlier, have a preference in which the user could select between "Solid Color (With variable transparency as an option)", "Inverse", and "Gradient". In particular, having a gradient from two shades of blue would be very charming. If you don't think that gradients look good as a selection, look at OS X's lightbox highlighting for "find" terms. When you "Find" something in a text document, it highlights it with a yellow gradient. I think that a similar gradient, in light blue, would be very welcome. In conclusion, I think that there should be options, and inverse should not be the default.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
