I've been working on a design with a blue accent color. When editing text, it is nearly impossible to see which text I am selecting to edit. Is there a setting to change the text-selection/highlight color? Or is there some other workaround?

Not highlighted:

On Mac you can change the highlight colour: System Preference > General > Highlight color

(this is a system-wide setting so it will affect everything, not just XD)

In Adobe XD, I am afraid, as of now this option is not available, however we have received similar request on Adobe XD UserVoice, please upvote this request: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/40320796-change-th...

 

This is the best way of communicating with the Engineering and Product Management teams regarding issues and suggestions so they can be implemented in future releases.
