I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 and along with that I've installed Bluefish 2.2.2 as one of the apps I need. I've tried editing the font colors in the editor (Edit -> Preferences -> Editor settings - Font & Colors) but when it comes to selecting the text there is no background color that appears on selected text. I found the same question on another post (gEdit problem with color of selected text) but it was with regards to Gedit, not Bluefish, and it seems that Bluefish does not use themes? Has anyone else had this problem and resolved?
I've just come across this by accident but if I hit (I was trying to do a 'Save All' but got it wrong. It concertinas the app into just the title bar and when I press again so that it appears the select background is mysteriously working. This is some kind of bug.
