Bug Description

Calibre 2.73, 64 bits, Windows 10 Home

When using ebook-edit with any solarized theme, selected text (including selected text after a search match), corresponding to the "Visual" style, is rendered using the same background color (#002b36, for example, using solarized-dark) than "Normal" style, so if foreground color of the surrounding text is not different enough, the end result is that you cannot spot matched text, for example.

This is not a big deal because I can for example copy my Vim color scheme with little work into Calibre ebook editor, but I think is important that the default themes are useful, and right now the solarized ones make difficult to see matched text or selected text.

I can provide screen captures if needed, no big deal.

I can also provide my solarized (dark) adapted theme for Vim, but it's not exactly as solarize, I made minor tweaks to adapt it to my likings.

Thanks in advance and of course, as always, thanks for Calibre.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.
