Don't invert text color when using inverted selection

From TotalcmdWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Currently there is an option to define a color for selections. This normally affects the font color. When using 'invert selection' this color is used as background color for the selection. The font color is just the inverted normal font color (normally white instead of black). This is basically very nice - similar to the new themed cursor. This has some downsides:

  1. When using colors per filetype the coloring is gone when the file is selected.
  2. As the font color is inverted it's almost impossible to use a lighter color (when using black text on white bg).

Another argument for the suggested behavior is that readability for the file under the cursor is better than on the selected background but still far from good.
