I want to know if there's a way to change the color of text that has been highlighted, not the highlight itself. I know that to change the color of the highlight itself, you go to the Appearance Preference Pane and change the highlight from there, but I want to know if there's a way to change it so that when I highlight text, the text itself changes color for higher contrast against a dark colored highlight. I think MSWord does it, I have some memory of working on Windows computers back in the day working like that, is there a way to make that sort of change on a Mac?
