Requesting Options to Better Highlight Selected Groups in Dark Mode

Recommended Posts

I have a very difficult time visually scanning for a group that includes a selected layer when using the dark mode UI. To my eye, there's not enough of a difference between the gray background and the dark gray-blue highlight color, and I often miss it.  I think it would be an improvement even if you brightened the highlight by a marginal amount as proposed below. Ideally, it would be great to be able to select my own highlight colors, but this would at least address the problem I have.

Thank you.

I can (and do) change my highlight colour in the OS System Preferences. OS Defaults rarely work for every thing I use and situation I am in.

The highlight color for the layer is fine (nice and bright). I'm talking specifically about the highlight color for groups containing a highlighted layer. If there's somewhere to change this already, please let me know. That would be lovely.

Ah, I see. Never had a need for the enclosing group(s) to be highlighted so I never even noticed the (extremely subtle) highlight they get.
