I've just upgraded to BW 8. Quite a lot of work, and not done yet.

When I do a search, hits come up highlighted in a pale yellow, which is hard for me to see. I would like to change this default hit highlighting to a more visible color. There was a hard-to-find way to do this in BW 7, but I can't remember what it was, and can't find it at all in version 8. (The mountain of words that is BW Help was, well, no help.)

Anybody know how to do this? Thanks!

Tools: Options. Then General: Option Strings. There is a place on the right side to change "Found Text". Play with that to whatever colors you desire.

Thanks, Michael. I think that's the same place it was in BW 7 -- not intuitive in my book, but now I can fix it up! :)

I'd always been afraid of "Option Strings." Sounds way too much like code jargon to me. Anyways, great question David and very practical answer Michael. :)
