Feedback when applying highlight

When text is highlighted, there’s no feedback to say that the highlight has appeared until after you cursor or click away from the selected text.

Not a biggie, just seems to me that perhaps the ‘system’ highlight (as opposed to the Scrivener highlight) should change tint slightly or blink to indicate that the highlight has been applied.

Wow, it goes to show how polished an app is when that’s your biggest wish!

Hi, yes, this has been asked before. The trouble is that the Cocoa text system doesn’t allow for transparent highlights, which would be the best solution. All solutions I’ve seen are somewhat clunky. Even the polished DevonThink’s way of handling this is obviously a workaround and doesn’t feel completely right.
All the best,
